KAISER-BURRTEC WEST VALLEY MATERIALS RECYCLING FACILITY RECEIVES SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY APPROVAL

 RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif., Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Kaiser Resources Inc. (NASDAQ: KRSC) announced today that the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors has unanimously approved the land use permit for the proposed Kaiser-Burrtec West Valley Materials Recycling Facility.
 The 250,000-square-foot facility is proposed to be built on 39 acres of Kaiser's former steel mill site near Fontana, Calif., and, at full build-out, can process 5,000 tons per day of industrial, commercial and residential recyclables and non-hazardous waste. The first phase of the project would create an estimated 250 jobs, expanding to 600 new jobs at full capacity.
 "This facility will significantly benefit San Bernardino County and west-end cities by creating jobs, helping cities meet the recycling requirements of state laws and maximizing recycling opportunities," said Gerry Fawcett, Kaiser's executive vice president. "With the county's approval, this project will be a major project in the revitalization of Kaiser's mill site property."
 The West Valley Materials Recycling Facility will also contain a recycling education program with an observation deck and a full-time community relations representative, a public buy-back center for recyclables and a county-run facility for the processing of household hazardous waste such as paint, disinfectants and batteries.
 According to Fawcett, the West Valley Materials Recycling Facility proposal will now be submitted to the California Integrated Waste Management Board which has six months to award final approval. Upon this board's approval, Kaiser-Burrtec will be soliciting regional waste disposal contracts to determine the ultimate size of the facility and its economic feasibility before construction begins. Project construction could begin in mid- to late-1994.
 Kaiser Resources Inc. and Burrtec Waste Industries, a Southern California waste hauler, entered their joint venture agreement in response to market opportunities created by California Assembly 939. AB939 requires municipalities to recycle or divert 25 percent of their solid waste streams from landfills by 1995, and 50 percent by the year 2000.
 Kaiser Resources Inc. is an emerging environmental resources company pursuing projects that address critical issues in Southern California, including solid waste management, water resources and property redevelopment.
