Out-of-state medical waste may flow to Salem trash burner

Out-of-state medical waste may flow to Salem trash burner

SALEM, Ore. (AP) - A garbage incinerator just north of Salem may soon take as much as 90 million pounds more in out-of-state medical waste.

The Statesman Journal reports the Marion County Commissioners will vote on the proposal to accept more medical waste at its June 29 meeting.

The county's revenue from the 30-year-old incinerator has been dropping, and medical waste is lucrative.

The county says the proposal could net the county as much as $3.4 million per year.

The incinerator, operated by Covanta Marion, currently burns about 400 million pounds of municipal garbage each year. That includes about 2.6 million pounds of medical waste. About 1.4 million pounds come from Marion County health facilities and the rest is from out of state.

If commissioners approve, Covanta would contract with Illinois-based Stericycle, the country's largest medical waste disposer, to take medical waste it collects from hospitals and medical offices in Washington and California.
