Guam - It's a first for Guam and for the region as the Guam Environmental Protection Agency kicked off its Solid Waste Association of North America training conference this weekend.

According to Guam EPA administrator Eric Palacios, today marks day two of the training that lead into the Zero Waste Conference on Thursday and Griday.

"Those who complete this training course will be better equipped with knowledge and skills and best practices that will ultimately result in improved service for our island in the solid waste industry," he said.

Palacios adds that the event will also benefit the Calvo Administration's goal to take management of the Layon Landfill as well as the proper closure of Ordot Dump.

A total of 50 participants from Guam, the Marshall Islands, FSM, Palau, and American Samoa are participating in the event.
