ALLIED WASTE INDUSTRIES, INC. COMPLETES ACQUISITION OF THREE WASTE COMPANIES

 HOUSTON, April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Allied Waste Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: AWIN) announced today the acquisition of the Lemons solid waste collection and landfill companies operating in Southeast Missouri. The companies provide residential and commercial collection service for 12 counties and municipalities in the region including Cape Girardeau, Dexter, Sikeston and Poplar Bluff. The company owns one landfill and operates two others under long-term lease agreements. The Lemons companies generated 1992 revenues of $6.8 million and were purchased for an aggregate consideration of $10.6 million, paid in Allied common stock, cash and notes.
 Roger A. Ramsey, Allied's chairman, stated, "Combining the Lemons companies with our existing Poplar Bluff operations creates a Southeastern Missouri enterprise whose net income more than doubles Allied's reported 1992 net income. These acquisitions follow our strategy of developing integrated collection and landfill operations which allow us to provide efficient and low cost waste services in the region."
 Allied Waste Industries, Inc., headquartered in Houston, is a rapidly growing solid waste management company providing non-hazardous waste collection, recycling and disposal services in the Midwest and Southwest.
