ITEM 8.01. OTHER EVENTS.
     Republic Services of Ohio II, LLC (“Republic-Ohio”), an Ohio limited liability company and wholly-owned subsidiary of Republic Services, Inc. (the “Company”), has been issued Final Findings and Orders (the “F&Os”) from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (“OEPA”). The F&Os relate to environmental conditions attributed to a chemical reaction resulting from the disposal of aluminum production waste at the Countywide Recycling and Disposal Facility (“Countywide”) in East Sparta, Ohio. The F&Os require certain actions to be taken by Republic-Ohio to address the environmental conditions, including, without limitation, the following actions: (a) prohibiting leachate recirculation, (b) refraining from the disposal of solid waste in certain portions of the site, (c) updating engineering plans and specifications and providing further information regarding the integrity of various engineered components at the site, (d) performing additional data collection, (e) taking additional measures to address emissions, (f) expanding the gas collection and control system, and (g) submitting to OEPA a plan to suppress the chemical reaction and, following approval by OEPA, implementing such plan.
     Based upon current information and engineering analyses, the Company believes that the cost for Republic-Ohio to comply with the F&Os will be approximately $22 million. The Company will record a $22 million charge to income from continuing operations before provision for income taxes during the three months ended March 31, 2007. The Company will adjust this charge, if necessary, to reflect the effects of new or additional information, to the extent that such information impacts the costs, timing or duration of the required actions. The majority of these costs are expected to be paid during 2007. In addition, the Company will incur approximately $3.3 million of additional amortization and depletion expense during 2007 associated with a reduction of remaining available airspace at Countywide. The Company’s 2007 operating income and cash flows from operating activities will be impacted accordingly.
     The Company intends to vigorously pursue financial contributions from third parties for its costs to comply with the F&Os.
     Additionally, the Stark County Health Department, in connection with the annual issuance of Countywide’s operating license, is evaluating the environmental conditions that are the subject of the F&Os. The Company expects that the Health Department will make a decision regarding the renewal of Countywide’s operating license in May 2007.
     Certain statements and information included herein constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Federal Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause our actual results, performance, or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance, or achievements expressed or implied in or by such forward-looking statements. Such factors include, among other things whether our estimates and assumptions concerning our selected balance sheet accounts, final capping, closure, post-closure and remediation costs, available airspace, and projected costs and expenses related to our landfills turn out to be correct or appropriate, and other factors contained in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
