USA WASTE SERVICES WINS LANDFILL BID

 DALLAS, Aug. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- USA Waste Services, Inc. (NYSE: UW) today announced that it had been selected by the City of Charleston, W.Va. to operate the city's landfill commencing next month. Charleston's City Council has authorized its Mayor to negotiate final contracts with USA, after accepting USA's winning proposal. USA will be required to expend approximately $14 million over the next five years in construction and landfill improvements at the site in conformance with engineering plans and specifications currently under review by the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection.
 The company estimates that landfill revenues for the site will be approximately $3.0 million per year. Donald F. Moorehead Jr., USA's chairman and CEO, noted, "We are happy to work with the City of Charleston to construct and operate a 'state of the art' landfill for the city's garbage. As municipalities across the country look more to privatization of their landfills, we are interested in seeking means to solve their environmental needs in a cost effect manner."
 USA Waste also announced that it had recently consummated a $1.4 million "tuck-in" acquisition of certain equipment and commercial customer routes for its Houston collection operation. The company estimates that this additional business will add approximately $1.0 million of incremental annual revenues to USA's operations.
 USA Waste Services, Inc. based in Dallas, is a rapidly growing solid waste management company performing both waste collection and disposal services in multiple locations nationwide.
