Casella: Biddo's Mayor Hasn't Derailed Westbrook Plans

Casella Waste Systems will move forward with its plan to build a $15 million
facility in Westbrook for processing the trash that currently goes to Maine
Energy Recovery Co., despite losing the support of Biddeford Mayor Joanne
Twomey. The construction of a trash-processing plant in Westbrook was part of a
package of initiatives developed to mitigate the negative effects of MERC,
Biddeford's controversial trash incinerator.
On a separate note, a PPH editorial on Twomey's decision sounded a more pessimistic tone about Casella's plans for the Paper City.
