Agat, Dededo and Malojloj Transfer Stations To Add Sunday and Monday Hours and Close Tuesday and Wednesday

New schedule to take effect Sunday, April 5, 2009

(Guam, March 25, 2009) – Federal Receiver Gershman, Brickner & Bratton, Inc., (GBB) today announced that beginning April 5, 2009, the transfer stations at Agat, Dededo and Malojloj will add Sunday and Monday hours.  With this new schedule, the three transfer stations will be open Thursday – Monday, 9 am to 5 pm, and closed on Tuesday and Wednesday. (Previously the transfer stations were closed on Sunday and Monday, and open on Tuesday and Wednesday.)

"We’ve heard from Guam’s Mayors that Sunday and Monday hours at the transfer stations would be more convenient for residents,” said David Manning, Receiver Representative.  "Also, residents told us they would like to have the transfer stations open on Sunday and Monday since they tend to do household chores and host social events―which generate trash and recyclable materials―during the weekends. We expect the new schedule will be an improvement for the entire community.”

According to Mayor Carol S. Tayama, President of the Mayor’s Council of Guam and Mayor of Agat Village, "For some time, Guam’s Mayors have been concerned about the serious health and environmental impacts of illegal dumping. We expect the Sunday and Monday hours at the Transfer Stations will be popular among residents and help prevent littering and the unsightly and unhealthy illegal dumping on the island.”
