Chicopee Considered For Trash Project

Western Massachusetts could be the  site of a new plant that would convert trash into renewable energy. 

Denmark-based DONG Energy is considering a half-dozen sites in the area  for an 80-million-dollar waste management plant, including five in  Chicopee.  

City officials say the closing of the privately-owned  Chicopee Sanitary Landfill is a factor.  

DONG opened its first  large-scale plant in the United Kingdom earlier this year and is also  working on a wind energy project off of Martha's Vineyard.
