Nothing decided yet as area towns consider sending trash to Bristol incinerator – Meriden Record-Journal

MERIDEN — The City Council voted this week to allow City Manager Guy Scaife to enter into talks with Covanta over possibly shipping trash to the company’s Bristol trash-to-energy plant, but a final agreement is far from a sure thing, Scaife said Thursday.

“I believe BYK USA has some interest in it,” said Wallingford Mayor William W. Dickinson Jr. “I’m not sure for what use.”

Covanta spokesman James Regan said the Wallingford transfer station closure was strictly economic. He could not say which company was interested in the property, except that “we’re looking at a possible sale.”

BYK, which makes chemical additives used in household paint, completed the 56,000-square-foot addition in July 2014.

“We want to have as much knowledge as possible,” Dickinson said. “We’re having another meeting this month.”
