Towns and cities could put up $20M needed to restart Hampden trash plant

Taxpayers in the 115 communities that relied on a shuttered waste processing plant in Hampden may have to foot the $20 million bill to restart the facility that’s been closed almost two years.

The price tag reflects the cost of reopening a facility that ran for about six months before closing if the group that represents the 115 communities — the Municipal Review Committee — becomes the owner when a round of bids closes at the end of June.

During a town hall meeting Wednesday, Municipal Review Committee board members outlined what ownership of the Hampden trash plant could look like. If the municipal group became its owner, it would have to raise about $20 million to restart operations.
