HOUSTON, June 27, 2002 -- USFilter Recovery Services (Mid-Atlantic) Inc., has completed the acquisition of certain assets of EarthLiquids, a company specializing in the collection and management of used oil and oily wastewaters.

Earlier this month, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas (Fort Worth Division) approved the transaction. EarthLiquids' parent company, The EarthCare Company, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection earlier this year.

EarthLiquids' service network of 140 waste transport trucks and five centralized waste processing and recycling facilities will be combined with the company's existing operations throughout the South and Mid-Atlantic states. USFilter Recovery Services has already been directing day-to-day operations under a management services agreement.

"We're delighted to be offering customers an expanded service network for recycling used oil, hydrocarbon-water mixtures, glycol, wastewater, used oil filters and related waste products," said Chuck Gordon, executive vice president and general manager of USFilter Industrial Services & Products.

Part of USFilter, USFilter Recovery Services specializes in the recovery and recycling of used oil, oily wastewaters, fuel-water mixtures, glycol and used oil filters.
