In order to maintain a high level of integrity, the department also retained the services of Gershman, Brickner & Bratton, Inc. (GBB) of Fairfax, Virginia to assist the Solid Waste Management Division in preparing its cost proposal.
After approximately three years and five months since its appointment, the Receiver [GBB] has effectively dealt with many challenges to reach two major milestones under the Consent Decree—the closing of the Ordot Dump and the opening of the Layon Landfill. The court commends the Receiver for its efforts and the tremendous progress it has made thus far.
We chose FleetRoute’s service bureau to develop our routes using GIS route optimization software because this approach provided a more economic, sophisticated, and faster solution than we could develop in-house. The service bureau gave us valuable access to the FleetRoute team’s extensive experience in waste collection and advanced route design. Using the service bureau allowed us not to worry about the methodology, but rather to focus on the most beneficial routing for the City of Edmond.
GBB’s assistance… was invaluable… I also appreciated [their] ability to navigate the…political waters.
The court compliments the Receiver[GBB]’s continued efforts to ensure GSWA [Guam Solid Waste Authority] remains financially sound. The Receiver’s strong fiscal management will assure successful completion of the Consent Decree projects.

All have made positive contributions to the body of solid waste literature and reflect the breadth of GBB’s expertise in the MSW field.
GBB was instrumental in helping us procure a collection contract that has reduced costs by a third.
We were very pleased with the work product provided by GBB through our Solid Waste Export Plan–Third Party Review. I think the King County audience generally felt that the work was thought-provoking and insightful, reflecting a deep understanding of the dynamics of the solid waste management field.
The combination of GBB’s procurement experience and C&D knowledge gave the County assurance that we were headed in the right direction at a crucial time.
We are very pleased with the results achieved and the significant role Gershman, Brickner & Bratton, Inc. played in the planning and execution of our Solid Waste and Recycling contracts. […]
Your firm’s expertise in the solid waste management field was very beneficial for the City of Fort Wayne as can be seen by the competitive bids we received this past summer. Being able to lower residents’ monthly fees by $.24 per month is a welcome change from Solid Waste bids received in the past.
