Abstract:

Construction of a new landfill on Guam required a means of leachate treatment. The closest treatment plant was a small aerated lagoon system operated by Guam Waterworks Authority (GWA). GWA sought financial relief for biosolids disposal from the solid waste Receiver, a court-appointed private company. This paper discusses the private-public cooperation that achieved the most cost effective solution for Guam's citizens, while protecting Guam's fragile island environment.
