Ensuring affordable, long term, and environmentally sound disposal of MSW

There’s been talk that DTE will bring in its own technology in the future, is that true?

The plant must reopen under the terms of the current permits and meet the terms of the Master Waste Supply Agreement, which details recycling rate requirements.

In its first town hall presentation to the MRC, DTE stated its plans to “improve and maximize diversion” and to “add new services and technology.”

This was stated clearly. Any new technology, however, will have to be permitted by the Maine DEP, which we know from experience can be a long and thorough vetting process.
