Notice is hereby given that a Joint Motion to Modify the Final Judgment was filed with the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York in United States et al. v. Waste Management, Inc. et al., Civil No. 98 CV 7168 on October 23, 2001. The Complaint alleged that Waste Management's proposed acquisition Eastern Environmental Services, Inc. would violate Section 7 of the Clayton Act, 15 U.S.C. 18, by substantially lessening competition in waste collection and/or disposal in nine markets around the country. The Final Judgment in the case required, among other things, that Waste Management divest Eastern's Kelly Run landfill located in Elizabeth, Pennsylvania.
A Competitive Impact Statement filed by the United States describes the Complaint, the Final Judgment, the industry, and remedies to be implemented by Waste Management. The Joint Motion to Modify the Final Judgment seeks an Order from the Court that Waste Management shall have no obligation under the Final Judgment to divest the Kelly Run landfill.
