CLAREMONT, N.H. (AP) - An incinerator that had turned trash from New Hampshire and Vermont into energy is up for sale.

Wheelabrator Technologies stopped accepting waste at its Claremont facility in 2013 after 27 years of operation.

The company says it plans to sell the incinerator by April 13. If a sale isn’t finalized by then, the plant will be auctioned the next day. The plant and nine acres are assessed at $7.4 million.

The plant burned about 200 tons of trash daily, with the potential to generate 5,000 kilowatts of electricity. A group of activists worked to shut it down, claiming its emissions were toxic and a danger to communities.

The state Supreme Court upheld a permit renewal this month, denying an appeal from residents who said it never should have been approved.
