Hearing set about Ordot compost facility

Posted: Updated:

Guam - While residents of Ordot are looking forward to the closure of the dump, they're not looking forward to the possibility of a composting facility across the street. Pacific Unlimited is seeking a zone change for the property directly across from the dump. 

The company has applied for the land to be rezoned to light industrial so they can operate a green waste and wood waste shredding and composting facility. Pacific Unlimited contends such a facility would benefit the entire island by providing a disposal site that processes this waste into a usable green product. Residents in the area, however, have expressed some concerns. 

The Guam Land Use Commission is scheduled to hold a hearing on the company's zone change request on May 5 at the Ordot Community Center at 6pm.
