NORTH ARLINGTON - A Florida company says it wants build an incinerator that would turn trash into green energy and bring jobs into Bergen County.

A company called WSI wants to turn a vacant property into the nation's first garbage facility that can turn trash into electricity.

Some residents say they think that the facility, which could create 120 jobs and generate more than $1 million, might be a good idea.

Borough Council members, however, say they don't think residents will want to smell garbage being burned.

The land was once the sole property of North Arlington, but will soon revert back to the state. If WSI wants to build on the land, it would have to put a bid on it.
