About GSWA
The GSWA is a public agency, created by Guam Public Law 31-20. The agency is a totally self-funded operation whose mission is to help its customers dispose of their trash in an environmentally safe and regulated manner. Each week, GSWA employees collect curbside trash from approximately 17,000 GSWA customers. GSWA also receives trash collected by commercial haulers and transported to the Hauler’s Transfer Station. In all, the GSWA handles more than 90,000 tons of material a year.
