BANGOR, ME, Jan. 24, 2020 (Bangor Daily News) -The new waste plant in Hampden is looking to hire another crop of workers so the facility can accept more deliveries of trash and ramp up its production of raw materials that it can sell to out-of-state paper manufacturers.

That news comes after Coastal Resources of Maine has suffered several recent setbacks. The plant, whichopened more than a year behind schedule, is stillstruggling to sell the fuel productsthat it makes from trash within the Pine Tree State. It also reopened late last week after shutting down for 4½ dayswhen a partially full propane cylinder— the kind used on a camping lantern — exploded inside the facility.
