Guam - For nearly a week, the trash at both the Hagatna and Agat Marinas has been piling up. According to Port Authority deputy general manager Felix Pangelinan, this is as a result of its trash collection contract ending on July 31st.
He says in the interim, port maintenance personnel have been picking up the trash at the marinas and on the compounds on storing them on state trucks.
Pangelinan adds he was informed Wednesday that a bid was awarded for trash services. GSA chief procurement officer Claudia Acfalle tells KUAM that GSA actually issued out a bid on July 12 for trash collection. She notes the port did not submit its requisition or request until a day after.
She adds that just today, GSA issued an award for trash services to Pacific Waste and Morrico telling KUAM that the trash at the marinas should be accommodated by Thursday.
