 PENNSYLVANIA ISSUES PERMIT TO BROWNING-FERRIS FOR 426-ACRE LANDFILL
 HOUSTON, June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Browning-Ferris Industries, Inc. (NYSE: BFI), said today that the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources issued the New Morgan Landfill Company, Inc., a BFI subsidiary, a permit for a new 426-acre solid waste landfill in New Morgan Borough, Berks County.
 William D. Ruckelshaus, chairman and CEO, said, "We are very pleased by this action. This is the third major landfill permit BFI has received since May 1. Pennsylvania is a key market for BFI and this gives us the opportunity to provide those customers with efficient, competitively priced disposal."
 The landfill will have 154 acres for disposal, with the balance of the land used for operations support facilities and a buffer zone. Between 2,000 and 2,500 tons of waste per day that originates in Philadelphia will be disposed of at the landfill starting in mid-1994.
 BFI recently was awarded a four-year contract to dispose of a portion of Philadelphia's municipal solid waste, starting in July 1994. At the end of four years, the contract may be extended for up to three more years.
 Approximately 1,000 tons a day will originate in Berks County, with additional tonnage to come from other regional sources.
 The total capacity of the permit area is 24 million cubic yards, and the site is expected to become operational in June 1993.
 The site is on former Bethlehem Steel property, a quarter of a mile north


of the Pennsylvania Turnpike's Morgantown exit. New Morgan Borough was recently created from part of Robeson and Caernarvon Townships.
 The New Morgan landfill site is the third major landfill permit granted to BFI since May 1. On May 7, BFI obtained a permit for its 244-acre, 2,750 ton-per-day Keller Canyon landfill located on 2, 628 acres in Northern California. On June 1, BFI received final approval for its 880-acre, 5,500 ton-per-day Carbon Limestone landfill in Poland, Ohio.
 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.
