Arundel may ask Baltimore for impact study on incinerator

The Anne Arundel County Council is to consider a resolution tonight calling on Baltimore to study the impact on county residents of a Hawkins Point medical waste incinerator before allowing the facility to expand its "catchment" area. The incinerator wants to be allowed to accept medical waste from outside the metropolitan area.

Opponents of the medical waste incinerator, including the Glen Burnie-based nonprofit Maryland Waste Coalition, want the County Council to issue a stronger condemnation of the Medical Waste Associates incinerator, which lies just north of the city-county line.

The council meets at 7:30 p.m. in the Arundel Center in Annapolis.

The Land-Use Committee of the Baltimore City Council is to consider the expansion proposal at 2:30 p.m. tomorrow at City Hall.
