GEORGETOWN, Ohio – Mountains of trash are being turned into utility resources in Brown County, Ohio.

On Thursday, state and local officials participated in a groundbreaking ceremony at the Rumpke Brown County landfill, designating the site as the place where methane from the decomposition of trash will be turned into usable electricity.

According to Rumpke officials, the approximately $8 million plant should be operational in late spring 2017.
