TRANSCOR WASTE SERVICES, INC. ANNOUNCES AWARD OF FIVE-YEAR COLLECTION CONTRACT FOR $14,500,000

 TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- TransCor Waste Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: TRCW) announces that it has been awarded an exclusive contract for collection services by the County of St. Lucie, Fla. The contract will be serviced by TransCor's operating subsidiary, Kimmins Recycling Corp., from its new facility in St. Lucie County. TransCor estimates revenue from the five-year contract, which commences Jan. 1, 1994, to be approximately $14,500,000.
 The contract involves the exclusive collection of solid waste and recyclable waste for approximately 16,000 households and recyclable waste for an additional 12,000 households. This opens a new market for TransCor to solicit additional solid waste business. These services were previously performed by a variety of haulers under non-exclusive agreements. The unsuccessful bidders included major regional and national waste companies.
 Francis M. Williams, chairman of the board, stated, "We have positioned the company to successfully win multi-year collection contracts with municipalities. The Florida market has a vast amount of collection contracts and exclusive franchises available for bid each year, and we already have been awarded six contracts over the last three years. This contract is an example of a municipality's goal to reduce the cost of services provided to its residents and enhance quality and safety."
 TransCor provides solid waste management services to commercial, industrial, and residential customers in the state of Florida. TransCor's services include transfer, collection, transportation, segregation, recycling, demolition, and disposal. TransCor is headquartered in Tampa, Fla., and operates facilities in Miami, Dade County; Clearwater, Pinellas County; Tampa, Hillsborough County; Jacksonville, Duval County; and Lantana, Palm Beach County.
