Guam - The Guam Environmental Protection Agency has taken the lead in the investigation into Monday's fire that broke out at Global Recycling Center in Dededo. A thick black plume of smoke could be seen as far away as Yigo and Adelup.
Guam EPA spokesperson Tammy Jo Anderson Taft said, "When the team looks into the situation they will determine what action will need to be taken based on our solid waste rules and regs, and so whatever the next steps that we ask to be taken that will be determined by the team and what in the permit conditions to ensure that solid waste is handled responsibly and handled within the confines of the law that we enforce."
Taft anticipates an update from the team by the end of this week. Meantime, she says residents who were affected by the thick black smoke from the fire can contact Guam EPA at 475-1658 or log on http://epa.guam.gov for more information.
