Come Dance On The Grave Of Detroit's Trash Incinerator Plus 10 Things To Know Around Detroit
If you’ve ever event spent any time outdoors within a mile’s radius of it — say, in Midtown or Eastern Market — then you’ve no doubt smelled the sickly sweet odor of the Detroit trash incinerator. Well, no more. Detroit Renewable Energy, the umbrella organization that owns and operates it, says it is shutting the incinerator down 33 years after it first fired up because of finances and complaints from the community. Operations will cease this week, but it’ll take up to 90 days to fully power the trash-to-energy facility down.
