CHAMBERS RECEIVES PERMIT FOR NEW VIRGINIA LANDFILL

 CHAMBERS RECEIVES PERMIT FOR NEW VIRGINIA LANDFILL
 PITTSBURGH, June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Chambers Development Company,


Inc. (AMEX: CDVA, CDVB) today announced it has been granted a permit for the construction and operation of a solid waste sanitary landfill in Amelia County, Va.
 "We believe that the Maplewood landfill in Amelia County will be the prototype for 21st century, environmentally sound waste management facilities," said Alexander Rangos, Chambers' chief operating officer. "This facility has been conceived and designed to provide environmental security, to minimize community and aesthetic impacts, and to incorporate safe and efficient transportation as a necessary component to modern regional environmental solutions. We are proud to be able to further our environmental and economic partnership with the Commonwealth of Virginia."
 The permit, issued by the Virginia Department of Waste Management, authorizes the company to begin work on a more than 25 million ton capacity landfill that will be able to accept an average 5,000 tons per day of municipal solid waste and non-hazardous industrial wastes. The landfill itself will eventually utilize 404 acres within a 794 acre site.
 The Maplewood landfill will be constructed utilizing state-of-the- art environmental technology, including a liner system incorporating synthetic and compacted soil components. Leachate generated during the operation of the facility will be collected and removed for treatment at a local wastewater treatment facility.
 A series of wells surrounding the facility will monitor the groundwater quality, thus further assuring the integrity of the liner systems.
 The facility will also employ a combination of security and inspection systems that have been developed by Chambers to prevent the disposal of illegal wastes at the landfill.
 Rangos also noted that the Amelia County site represents another significant "first" for Chambers. "This is our first disposal facility that will have direct rail service to the site. In addition to controlling truck traffic impacts on the surrounding community, we expect to be able to make effective use of the patented 'Railaway Plus' system -- the country's first rail-haul system specifically designed to handle solid and semi-solid wastes in an environmentally sound fashion."
 Amelia County, located approximately 35 miles southwest of Richmond, Va., will be home to Chambers second operating landfill facility in Virginia. The company also operates the Charles City County landfill which opened in April 1990.
 Chambers Development Company, Inc., headquartered in Pittsburgh, is a leading environmental firm offering services in landfill and transfer station development, and recycling, as well as the collection, transportation and disposal of residential, commercial, non-hazardous industrial and medical wastes.
