Letter: Becker County: Don't send your garbage to Perham
Garbage! What to do with it? The city of Perham has an idea for Becker County. Load it up and bring it to the 20-year-old garbage burner in downtown Perham.
Perham wants to double the capacity of the burner from 118 tons per day to 200 tons. But why do they need Becker County, you might ask? Because the four counties presently bringing garbage to the Perham burner (Todd, Wadena, Stearns, and Ottertail) don't have enough to justify expanding.
