BROWNING-FERRIS, PROCTER & GAMBLE JOIN FORCES TO RECYCLE PLANT BY-PRODUCTS

 BROWNING-FERRIS, PROCTER & GAMBLE JOIN FORCES
 TO RECYCLE PLANT BY-PRODUCTS
 HOUSTON, July 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Browning-Ferris Industries, Inc. (NYSE:BFI) and Procter & Gamble Cape Girardeau today announced a program to jointly expand P&G's Cape Girardeau, Missouri, recycling program.
 William D. Ruckelshaus, chairman and CEO of BFI, said, "This project will bring out the best in a cooperative partnership between BFI and P&G to reduce waste, and recover recyclable materials and move them to market efficiently."
 The Cape Girardeau plant, which manufactures paper products, has recycled its manufacturing by-products for many years, but under a new program BFI will handle the internal solid waste collection for the plant, and build and operate a Materials Recovery Facility, or MRF, nearby on Nash Road. The MRF will process such plant by-products as corrugated cardboard, paper and various plastics. At the MRF, the material will be sorted and baled for shipment to market.
 BFI will provide collection, sorting and preparation for shipping the waste by-products. BFI expects to hire between 20 and 25 new employees for in-plant collection services and to operate the new MRF. Sorting the materials at the MRF will be subcontracted by BFI to VIP Industries, Inc. VIP Industries is the largest sheltered workshop in Missouri and serves three counties with over 300 mentally challenged and developmentally disabled individuals at four facilities engaged in product packaging.
 Browning-Ferris Industries, Inc. is one of the largest publicly-held companies engaged in providing waste services. Subsidiaries and affiliates collect, transport, treat and dispose of commercial, residential and municipal solid waste and industrial wastes. BFI subsidiaries are also involved in recycling, resource recovery facilities, medical waste services, portable restroom services, and municipal and commercial sweeping operations.
