Pangelinan not buying GRRP's deal

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Along with former Santa Rita mayor Joseph Wesley, Senator Ben Pangelinan has been fighting Guam Resource Recovery Partners' incinerator contract, which we should note has been deemed null and void. GRRP wants to take over Layon to dump its ash from their proposed incinerator.

Likewise, they'd like to send trash over to their proposed landfill in Santa Rita. It's a proposal the Democrat lawmaker isn't buying, as Pangelinan said, "I admire they're tenacity, but I'm just as determined that we're not going to put our selves into a position any manner of this contract and this program that they have been proposing is going to suck the millions of dollars out of the people's pockets."

GRRP is hoping the Government of Guam's leaders will accept their proposal and eventually present it to federal court.
