On Tuesday, Senator Collins toured the Coastal Resources facility in Hampden to see first-hand the innovative recycling and waste processing technology. MRC Executive Director Mike Carroll joined Senator Collins and Coastal representatives on the tour of the facility. "It was terrific to have US Senator Collins tour this facility. She recognized the value of our municipal collaboration that has brought this state-of-the-art technology to our region," said Mike Carroll.
"I was so impressed with the plant that I saw," said Collins. "The recycling process here is truly next generation, state of the art and more sophisticated than any recycling plant that I've ever seen."
