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.
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.
The survey [GBB’s 2006 national studies for the National Demolition Associate of the amount of demolition material generated annually] was incredibly helpful and will be part of the EPA 2006-2011 National Policy. These data influence EPA policy.
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.
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.
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.
GBB was instrumental in helping us procure a collection contract that has reduced costs by a third.
I know I can speak for the Trustees in saying that GBB has been of enormous assistance to us. The firm has guided us and the two jurisdictions’ solid waste operations through some challenging times. The Trustees have no hesitation in recommending GBB.
GBB’s route optimization team greatly contributed to making our transition easier and successful. We are now using FleetRoute for both residential and commercial routes. The software makes route creating easier and more efficient than manual routing, especially given our high-growth environment.
