BROWNING-FERRIS INDUSTRIES WITHDRAWS TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER REQUEST

 COLUMBUS, Ohio, April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Browning-Ferris Industries (BFI) announced today that it has agreed to withdraw its request for a temporary restraining order challenging the legality of the Clark County Solid Waste Management District's (CCSWMD) authority to impose flow control of BFI waste to the Tremont City Landfill. Steve White, BFI vice president of regulatory affairs commented, "While we continue to have environmental concerns, we have agreed to comply because at this point we see no other options under existing law."
 In 1991, the Clark County Solid Waste Management District named the Tremont City Landfill as its designated facility. Earlier this month, the CCSWMD ruled and implemented flow control, consistent with the Clark County Solid Waste Plan.
 Browning-Ferris Industries' initial concern involved possible environmental liability at the Tremont City Landfill. An environmental audit by the company revealed the site may not meet BFI's environmental policy standards.
 Under the terms of the compliance agreement, BFI will:
 -- Comply with Clark County Solid Waste Plan.
 -- Pay district fees for waste that it would have received between April 1 and April 16, 1993.
 -- Pay district legal fees related to this litigation.
 Browning-Ferris Industries is one of the largest solid waste companies in Ohio engaged in providing waste services. Subsidiaries and affiliates collect, transport, treat and dispose of commercial, residential and municipal solid wastes. BFI is also involved in recycling, composting and resource recovery.
