CHAMBERS OPENS NEW LANDFILL IN VIRGINIA

 PITTSBURGH, May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Chambers Waste Systems of Virginia, Inc., a subsidiary of Chambers Development Company, Inc. (AMEX: CDVA, CDVB), of Pittsburgh, reported today that its new Maplewood Recycling and Waste Disposal facility in Amelia County, Va., is open and fully operational.
 Alexander W. Rangos, Chambers' executive vice president, said, "We are extremely proud of this facility, the newest in our system of landfills that are providing environmentally sound waste disposal. This landfill has been designed to provide state-of-the-art disposal capacity to Virginia and Amelia County citizens."
 The landfill features a liner system incorporating synthetic and compacted soil components.
 The company received its landfill permit from the Virginia Department of Waste Management. In 1992, the company immediately began work on the more than 25-million-ton-capacity landfill that can accept an average of 5,000 tons per day of municipal solid waste and non-hazardous industrial wastes. The landfill itself will eventually utilize 404 acres within an 804-acre site and is located contiguous to and has access from a four-lane divided state highway.
 Leachate generated during the operation of the facility will be collected and removed for treatment at a local wastewater treatment facility. A series of wells surrounding the facility will monitor the groundwater quality, thus further assuring the integrity of the liner systems.
 The facility will also employ a combination of security and inspection systems that have been developed by Chambers to prevent the disposal of improper wastes at the landfill.
 The Amelia County site represents another significant "first" for Chambers. This is the company's first disposal facility that will have direct rail service to the site. In addition to controlling the truck traffic impact on the surrounding community, the company expects to be able to make effective use of its patented "Railaway Plus" system -- the country's first rail-haul system specifically designed to handle solid and semi-solid wastes in an environmentally sound fashion.
 Amelia County, located approximately 35 miles southwest of Richmond, Va., is home to Chambers' second operating landfill facility in Virginia. The company also operates the Charles City County landfill, which opened in April 1990.
