The Concord (N.H.) Regional Solid Waste/Resource Recovery Cooperative has proposed establishing a 295-acre, $9.4 million landfill in Canterbury. The 27-town cooperative currently trucks its trash to the Wheelabrator Technologies Inc. incinerator in Penacook. The co-op is negotiating with Wheelabrator on a 10-year extension of the current arrangement, which expires in 2009. The Canterbury facility would provide a long-term solution once the current disposal site for landfill ash closes down in 2019.
