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 survey [GBB’s 2006 national study, for the National Demolition Association, 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.
I’m pleased to report that the Kent County Board of Public Works has approved the advancement of the Sustainable Business Park Master Plan that GBB developed. […] GBB’s comprehensive approach to the development of this Master Plan will allow us to move seamlessly into the implementation phase. Your agency’s collective industry experience and willingness to bring local engineering consultants alongside the process has proven to be invaluable as we explore the variety of technologies in use across the world to help us reach our goals of reducing waste going to landfill by 90% by 2030.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
