Wilmarth Keeps Waste Out Of County's Landfill [Photo]

MANKATO (TEC News) – Xcel Energy’s Wilmarth Generating Station in Mankato, is given credit for burning tons of waste that otherwise would end up in the landfill. The Blue Earth County Board approved a management agreement Tuesday. The county says of 700 tons of trash, 85 percent is turned in fuel. The county says not having Wilmarth would triple the amount of waste in the landfill every day.
