Wheelabrator Technologies Inc. (Portsmouth, NH) is seeking approval to expand its metal extraction services conducted at its ash monofill facility in Putnam, CT. The company proposes to install and operate a screening system to remove recyclable scrap metal from ash residue shipped to the Putnam facility, which operates as a public-private partnership between Wheelabrator and the Town of Putnam. The facility offers ash accommodation and disposal services to in-state and out-of-state energy-from-waste facilities, and receives more than 700,000 tons of ash annually. The company operates three other ash monofills, two in Massachusetts and one in Florida.
