General Environmental Management, Inc. Awarded Four Contracts Totaling $6.1 Million

EnviroConstruction Group Driving Growth

POMONA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 12, 2007 -- General Environmental Management, Inc. ("GEM") (OTCBB: GEVM), a leading environmental and waste remediation company, today announced over the past six months GEM has been awarded four contracts with a combined worth of $6.1 million as follows:

--  $3.1 million follow-up contract from Jacobs Engineering Group, Inc. in
    Alaska,
--  $2.2 million award from public sector site remediation in Southern
    California; and
--  $800,000 in contracts from two large national customers representing
    the electronics industry.
    
"Our business continues to grow, largely due to our successful EnviroConstruction Group," stated Tim Koziol, chairman and CEO of GEM. "Our Jacobs Engineering award furthers our more than three-year relationship with the company. We believe we continue to be selected based on our customer service and quality work. Additionally, we have continued to win contracts in the Western region as well as build relationship with national customers."

Project services include on-site management, excavation, transportation and disposal of contaminated soils. GEM was supported through subcontractor relationships for transportation and disposal services. For Jacobs, GEM works as an on-site environmental restoration subcontractor and manages the transportation and disposal of contaminated materials on federal environmental clean-up projects.

Growth in EnviroConstruction services is directly related to GEM's commitment to this sector, as demonstrated by the company's dedicating additional project management and business development resources earlier this year.
