Office of Solid Waste Management Division Resumes Regular Business Schedule

Extended Saturday Hours No Longer Needed After Successful Trash Cart Program Rollout


(Guam, August 31, 2010) – The Guam Solid Waste Management Division (SWMD) has announced that effective September 1, 2010, its offices will no longer be open on Saturdays, and the regular Monday to Friday (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) schedule will resume.

"The extended Saturday hours were necessary to respond adequately to the increased demand generated by the re-registration of residential customers for the new cart-based trash collection system,” said Receiver Representative David L. Manning. "The rollout has now been successfully completed, and the SWMD office can now resume its regular schedule.”

The schedule for the transfer stations at Agat, Dededo, and Malojloj remain the same: Thursday to Monday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. In addition to trash, the transfer stations continue to accept the following recyclable materials:

There is no charge for recyclables brought to any transfer station.
