FURTHER REVIEW OF BFI'S SUNSHINE CANYON LANDFILL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT REQUIRED

 FURTHER REVIEW OF BFI'S SUNSHINE CANYON LANDFILL
 ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT REQUIRED
 HOUSTON, Nov. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Browning-Ferris Industries, Inc. (NYSE: BFI) said today that the California Superior Court, county of Los Angeles, ruled Friday that further review and recirculation of the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the Sunshine Canyon landfill expansion project is required. After recirculation of the EIR, further review and approvals of various authorities are required for the landfill expansion project to go forward. The expansion is opposed by the city of Los Angeles and by a local citizens' opposition group in litigation brought against the county of Los Angeles and the company.
 The company is now reviewing the various options, including appeals, that are available in the wake of Friday's ruling. The company noted that the ruling is not directed at the merits of the landfill expansion project.
 BFI continues to believe that the Sunshine Canyon landfill expansion project is environmentally sound and will serve the greater Los Angeles area with critically needed disposal capacity.
 Management believes that the ultimate disposition of this matter will not have a material adverse effect on the company's business or consolidated financial position.
