County wants to expand garbage burning

Hennepin County is seeking state and city approval to incinerate 11 percent more garbage in its North Loop plant next to Target Field.

The Hennepin Energy Recover Center currently burns 365,000 tons of garbage annually, generating 220,000 megawatt hours of electricity, or the equivalent of 24,000 homes every day.
