FOR YOUR INFORMATION: Cornwall’s trash is hauled to Hartford to be burned in the CRRA Mid-Connecticut Project waste-to-energy facility. This facility generates electricity to power about 45,000 homes and sells that electricity into the power grid. The by-products of this process – ash and non-processable waste – end up in modern lined landfills, but trash-to-energy reduces by 90 percent the volume of material going into landfills. While Cornwall pays $69 per ton (in FY 2011) to bring trash to the trash-to-energy plant, it pays nothing to bring its recyclables to CRRA’s recycling facility. In fact, CRRA pays Cornwall for its recyclables. RECYCLE! Save Cornwall’s money!
