The Penobscot Energy Recovery Co. recently published the first edition of a newsletter for municipal officials and residents in its service area.
People interested in obtaining a copy of it may call the plant in Orrington at 825-4566.
“This is simply another small step in our effort to communicate with our customer communities,” Gary Chandler, PERC spokesman, said in a prepared release. “We hope people will take the time to become as informed as possible on the waste disposal options for their towns and the PERC newsletter is one source for information.”
The newsletter is mailed to the staff and elected officials of municipalities served by PERC and will be published periodically as new information arises in the ongoing process of restructuring municipal solid waste contracts.
The next issue is expected to cover PERC’s role in community recycling efforts.
