Guam - Before it issues a final permit, the Guam Environmental Protection Agency wants to hear from the public on Guam Resource Recovery Partners' plans to build a municipal solid waste landfill in Atantano, Santa Rita. The land is being leased from the Chamorro Land Trust Commission.

The Guam EPA is currently accepting public comments on GRRP's permit application. A public hearing is also scheduled for Tuesday at the Santa Rita Community Center at 6pm. 

Public comments will be accepted until Friday. You can view a copy of the draft permit at the Guam EPA's main office in Tiyan or at the Santa Rita Mayor's Office.
