DAILY TONNAGE INCREASED AT CHAMBERS VIRGINIA LANDFILL

 DAILY TONNAGE INCREASED AT CHAMBERS VIRGINIA LANDFILL
 PITTSBURGH, May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- The Charles City County, Va.,


Board of Supervisors has approved an increase in the average daily tonnage limit at Chambers Development Company, Inc.'s (AMEX: CDVA, CDVB) Charles City County landfill to 5,000 tons per day of solid and special, non-hazardous waste.
 The tonnage increase takes effect immediately.
 Chambers can accept as much as 115 percent or 5,750 tons of solid waste on any given day, provided the quarterly average does not exceed 5,000 tons per day.
 The landfill, which has been accepting an average of 3,100 tons per day of solid waste, has more than 20 years of remaining disposal capacity without further expansion.
 Alexander Rangos, Chambers' executive vice president, said he was pleased with the tonnage increase.
 "The increase allows us to continue to provide Virginia residents and surrounding areas with long-term, environmentally sound solid waste disposal well into the next century," Rangos said. "As we have from the outset, we will continue to work closely with the Board of Supervisors, the Virginia Department of Waste Management and the community on all issues regarding our landfill."
 Opened in April 1990, Chambers' Charles City County landfill meets or exceeds any current or pending state or federal design standards.
 Additionally, thanks to revenue generated from Chambers' regional landfill, the Charles City County school district is constructing three new modern schools to replace the old ones now in the district.
 "It's truly a miracle in the making," said Bill Townes, school superintendent. "Charles City County is never going to be the same again once those schools go up. Our children will be able to hold their heads up high and compete with other students across the state. These new schools will rank us among the top school districts in Virginia. Because of revenue from Chambers' landfill, we can build our schools now."
 Construction is under way and in the fall of 1993, the roughly 1,000 elementary, middle and high school students will attend state-of-the-art, brand new buildings on an 80-acre campus at the center of the county.
 The new schools will have science labs, computer labs, lab 2000 for technologies such as industrial arts, libraries and a gymnasium.
 Townes said the community can't wait for the completion of the new schools. "This has really pulled the community together. It has boosted self-esteem and everyone is so proud to be a resident in the county and can't wait for the doors to open. It's all anyone is talking about."
 He said Charles City County is at a pivotal point but is ready to make that turn. "The school system is the first aspect that any young family looks at before moving into an area. Because ours will be right up there at the top, I believe housing starts will increase, recreational facilities will improve and people will begin moving into the county. It's a great time to be a part of Charles City County."
