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.
We do appreciate everything that GBB did for us during the Initiative. We’re grateful for your perseverance, expertise, and patience during the project’s tenure. It was invaluable. Thanks again for everything.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
