GRRP elated with greenlight for comments

Guam - With District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood's concerns alleviated, Guam Resource Recovery Partners is ready to proceed with its landfill permit application at Guatali. The judge removed a portion of an order issued last month that stalled GRRP's application. 

The court noted her satisfaction that the private landfill will not have an impact on the funding for the Layon landfill.

GRRP representative Dave Sablan told KUAM News, "We are really happy that we are back on track again and yes, we will now proceed with the 45-day public comment period. We're putting all the packages together and distributing them to the library, the University of Guam and other public places for the public to access and to provide written comments to the Guam EPA, which will be compiled in the final report prior to issuance of our operating permit."

Sablan believes that once the private landfill is built, it would be in compliance with the consent decree and put an end to the need for the federal receiver and a landfill at Layon. GRRP had hoped to have a public hearing on March 17, but that will likely be pushed back until some time in April.
