Irwindale : Hearing on Incinerator Set

October 16, 1986

A state Energy Commission committee will conduct a hearing at 10 a.m. Nov. 13 at City Hall to consider how to handle a revised application by Pacific Waste Management Corp. for a permit to build a waste-to-energy plant in Irwindale.

The company originally applied to the Energy Commission to build a plant that would burn up to 3,000 tons of trash a day, but last month revised the application in order to build the plant in two stages, with an initial capacity of 2,250 tons of trash a day.

Pacific Waste wants the commission to accept the revision and reduce pollution and trash contract requirements to meet the reduced size of the proposed plant.

Critics, including attorneys for the Miller Brewing Co., will ask the commission instead to terminate the permit proceedings.
