MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - The groundbreaking for a trash-to-fuel facility in Martinsburg has been pushed back several months.

John Decker with project investor Apple Valley Waste told the Berkeley County Solid Waste Authority recently that financing for the project may not be completed until February.

The Journal (https://bit.ly/1v8kOCD) reports Entsorga West Virginia had hoped to break ground on its first U.S. facility this month.

Decker says he believes the project is in “good shape.” He says he’s already received calls from companies wanting to transport their materials to Entsorga once the facility opens.

The $19 million waste facility would produce solid fuel from trash. The authority had approved the project last January.

Entsorga will pay the authority more than $3.6 million over a lease agreement’s 30-year period.
