Federal Receiver Soliciting Expressions of Interest for providing Municipal Solid Waste Transfer Station and Transportation to Disposal Site

(Guam, July 12, 2010) – Federal Receiver Gershman, Brickner & Bratton, Inc. (GBB) announced today that it is soliciting expressions of interest from qualified organizations for providing an existing or new Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Transfer Station (including transfer haul of the MSW from the Transfer Station to the Disposal Site). The Transfer Station shall be located within 5 miles of the Department of Public Works’ compound. The Transfer Station will be expected to receive MSW six (6) days a week, load it into transfer trailers, and haul it to the new Layon Landfill each of these working days.  The Transfer Station will also be required to divert material that can be recycled as long as such activity is economically practical.

"It is very important that the Transfer Station be properly permitted by the Guam Environmental Protection Agency prior to the time that the Layon Landfill opens,” noted Receiver Representative David L. Manning. "Accordingly, any interested party must already have a permitted transfer station or present convincing evidence of its ability to become properly permitted not later than March 2011.”

Expressions of Interest should be emailed or delivered on or before August 20, 2010 to Linda Ibanez at lindaibanez@gmail.com or delivered to Linda Ibanez at the SWMD–GBB Receiver Office, 2nd Floor, Solid Waste Management Building, Department of Public Works, 542 N. Marine Corps Dr., Tamuning, Guam, 96913.
