Wickliffe paper plant offers to take storm debris
By Casey Northcutt
Wickliffe, KY – A local paper plant has proposed a new method for disposing of debris from January's ice storm. NewPage Corporation spokeswoman Sandra Wilson says the company's Wickliffe plant has offered to take the bark from fallen trees to fuel its boiler. The plant can only use so much bark, but it has offered to take portions of debris from both Paducah and Mayfield. Wilson says NewPage has yet to receive any trees, but it is open to negotiation with contractors.
