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.
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.
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.
GBB was instrumental in helping us procure a collection contract that has reduced costs by a third.
Over the years MSW Management has had the opportunity to feature a number of articles by GBB managers and staff from broad issue discussions to project-specific expositions. All have made positive contributions to the body of solid waste literature and reflect the breadth of GBB’s expertise in the MSW field.
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 assistance… was invaluable… I also appreciated [their] ability to navigate the…political waters.
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 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.
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.
