A national environmental group has been knocking on doors in parts of Frederick County this week asking residents to help stop the county from building an incinerator. The Baltimore chapter of Clean Water Action, an environmental grassroots organization, is urging residents to oppose a joint incinerator with Carroll County. The facility is also known as a waste-to-energy plant since it burns trash to generate electricity.
