Despite a power-point presentation, a 45-minute film and testimony praising the recycling programs in Boulder, Colo., two Frederick County commissioners said this week they are still not convinced that building an incinerator to dispose of trash is wrong for Frederick County.

Jenkins (R) and John ‘‘Lennie” Thompson Jr. (R) said this week they are still leaning toward voting to build an incinerator in Frederick County, or what some call a ‘‘waste-to-energy” facility, because it burns trash to produce electricity.
