GRRP is proposing to build a landfill and waste to energy facility in Atantano, Santa Rita.  According to Guam solid waste disposal rules and regulations, the Guam EPA must conduct a comment period on the permit application for at least 45 days.  The proposed permit and documents are available for review at th EPA's office in Tiyan, the Santa Rita Mayor's Office, the Agana Library and at the University of Guam's RFK Library.
