Guam Solid Waste enters 10th year under receivership

Guam’s solid waste system will remain under Gershman Brickner and Bratton ‘s control until June 30, 2018 — an indictment of the territorial government that has failed to complete its court-mandated tasks nearly a decade since it was placed under federal receivership.

GBB’s term as federal receiver was originally set to expire on Dec. 31, but the federal court pointed out that “a smooth transition cannot occur as originally contemplated” due to a lack of readiness on the part of the Guam Solid Waste Management Authority’s board and its new management to resume control over the agency’s operations by the end of the year.
