Proposed 90,000 sq ft Waste Facility for Hampden

You're invited to an HCC meeting this Thursday, January 22nd, at 7 pm
to discuss MRC's proposed 90,000-square-foot waste facility in Hampden,
at my house, 30 Wilbur Drive.

Some background on MRC's proposed  waste facility in Hampden:

The MRC, which represents 187 municipalities that currently truck their
waste to the PERC plant in Orrington, has optioned 90 acres in Hampden's
“triangle” area between Ammo Industrial Park, I-95 and the Coldbrook
road for a new $60-million plant. The proposed 90,000-square-foot
facility most likely would be operated by Fiberight LLC of Catonsville,
Md., which converts food waste and contaminated material that cannot be
recycled into cellulosic biofuel.

The project was presented to the Hampden Town Council on December 15th
as an innocuous item on the agenda  D.5.a: "Potential Industrial
Development – Coldbrook Road/Rt 202/I-95 Triangle" - no mention of
trash, waste, or the MRC.  For a look at that presentation go to this link:


The MRC presentation happens fairly early on in the meeting/video.

There is also a seven minute video of the process:


with trash being sorted on an industrial scale.  I've watched it a few
times; it appears to me the sorting process is not very precise.
