CHAMBERS RECEIVES REZONING APPROVAL FOR ARDEN LANDFILL & NEW WASTE CONTRACT

 CHAMBERS RECEIVES REZONING APPROVAL
 FOR ARDEN LANDFILL & NEW WASTE CONTRACT
 PITTSBURGH, Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Chambers Development Company, Inc. (AMEX: CDVB) today announced that its subsidiary William H. Martin, Inc. received unanimous approval from the Chartiers Township supervisors last night for the rezoning of property adjoining its Arden landfill in Washington County, Pa.
 Approximately 420 acres of property were rezoned from agricultural to industrial, of which more than 60 percent will be dedicated for buffer area, composting, recycling and a new maintenance facility. The remaining 167 acres would be suitable for the development of future landfill disposal capacity.
 Depending upon the necessary land use and permit approvals, the project could generate $19 million in host benefit fees for Chartiers Township over the life of the facility. In addition, the proposed development project represents a $100 million capital investment in Washington County which will provide both construction and permanent jobs to the area.
 Steve McCarthy, vice president of Chambers' northern region operations, said he was pleased with the supervisors' support of this important project.
 "For the past 18 months we have worked hard to ensure that our landfill is an asset facility to the community," McCarthy said. "This extension of the life of the landfill will provide at least 20 years of additional disposal capacity to area residents, job security to more than 200 permanent and construction employees in Washington County and a valuable source of revenue to Chartiers Township for many years.
 "As in the past, we will continue to work as closely as possible with local officials, neighborhood and environmental groups to provide information regarding any new development activities," he said.
 To date, the company has invested $30 million in developing and installing state-of-the-art environmental protection at the Arden landfill that meets or exceeds all federal and state environmental regulations.
 In addition, the company last night also was awarded a three-year contract from the Greene County, Pa., Solid Waste Authority to collect, transport and dispose of that county's waste. The contract, which begins Jan. 1, 1993, is expected to generate annual revenue of $1.6 million. Chambers will be providing service to 97 percent of the homes in Greene County.
 "We are pleased to expand our services into Greene County, another market area of Pennsylvania, while building upon our existing operation in western Pennsylvania," McCarthy said.
