GRRP hopes to take over Layon

Guam - Although the Guam Supreme Court has ruled their contract unenforceable, Guam Resource Recovery Partners isn't giving up on a license that allows them to construct a waste-to-energy facility at Guatali.

GRRP representative Dave Sablan says the company has made presentations to the governor's office, the legislature and the military as they believe they have an affordable alternative to continued federal receivership and putting a landfill at Layon. GRRP is still waiting on Guam EPA to begin the 45-day public comment period before they can obtain the necessary permits to construct a landfill at Guatali.

He said, "Once we get all of that, we can pretty much complete this landfill at Guatali by early part of next summer, it doesn't take too long, because there's already a natural pit there so we just have to make sure that it's environmentally sound and that it's a sanitary landfill, per se."

While the first two cells of the new Layon landfill are expected to be completed by early August when the Ordot Dump will officially stop accepting solid waste, GRRP is proposing that the dump remain open for another year to allow the landfill at Guatali to be built first. GRRP is hoping the governor will present the plan to the district court during the next status hearing in August.
