WHEELABRATOR GRANTED PERMITS TO BUILD TRASH-TO-ENERGY FACILITY

 WHEELABRATOR GRANTED PERMITS TO BUILD TRASH-TO-ENERGY FACILITY
 FALLS TOWNSHIP, Pa., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Wheelabrator Falls Inc., a subsidiary of Wheelabrator Environmental Systems Inc., announced today that it had received final permits from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources, allowing Wheelabrator to commence construction of a trash-to-energy facility in Falls Township, Bucks County, Pa.
 "We are delighted to receive our permits after having them in process for over three years," said Richard T. Felago, Wheelabrator vice president and Falls project manager. "Issuance of permits at this time meets the contractual deadline for their receipt with the City of Philadelphia, and will ensure service to Philadelphia and Bucks County communities right on schedule, in mid-1994." Solid waste and air quality permits were among those needed to begin construction of the facility.
 Felago noted that the DER issued permits for a 1,600-ton-per-day plant, consisting of two units, instead of the 2,250-ton-per-day, three- unit plant originally applied for. "As we have noted all along, the larger plant is the right size for Bucks County. We believe future tonnage demands will require additional plant capacity; this is a phased approach, two units now, a third unit later."
 Construction will begin in June and take about two years to complete, according to Felago. "We're underway now and look forward to serving the Bucks County area as a good neighbor for many years to come," he said.
 The $200 million project incorporates a unique, fully integrated recycling facility on site, which will be built and equipped by Wheelabrator and operated by Otter Recycling, a Wheelabrator recycling partner from Bristol, Pa. The recycling facility will be located on the same parcel of land as the trash-to-energy plant, sharing common utilities, personnel, scales and other integrated operating services.
 Wheelabrator Environmental Systems operates numerous wastewater treatment facilities, composting and sludge management projects and 14 commercial recycling/trash-to-energy facilities that have converted more than 34 million tons of trash into clean energy since 1975. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Wheelabrator Technologies Inc. (NYSE: WTI)
 Wheelabrator Technologies Inc. is the nation's leading developer and operator of trash-to-energy and cogeneration facilities, offers clean air, infrastructure and environmental engineering services and technologies, and provides a range of water and wastewater treatment facilities.
