CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A waste-to-energy plant in Concord, New Hampshire, is marking 25 years of operation.

Since it opened in 1989, the Wheelabrator Concord facility has processed more than 4 million tons of waste, generating more than 2.5 million megawatts of electricity.

It serves more than two dozen communities in southern and central New Hampshire through the Concord Regional Solid Waste Resource Recovery Cooperative.

The plant converts more than 500 tons of post-recycled household and commercial waste daily into energy, generating over 14 megawatts of electricity. That's enough to power 14,000 New Hampshire homes as well as its own operations.

Wheelabrator is conducting tours and holding a ceremony Friday.
