MARTINSBURG, WV (AP) -

The Berkeley County Solid Waste Authority has approved a proposed $19 million waste facility that would produce a solid fuel from trash.

Media outlets report that the authority plans to sign a lease and easement agreement for the project on Thursday. The county would receive more than $3.6 million over the agreement's 30-year period.

Entsorga West Virginia proposes to build a mechanical-biological solid waste facility that would organize incoming waste without the need for employees to sort it by hand.

John Decker with Apple Valley Waste says Ensortga must obtain permits from the state Department of Environmental Protection, the state Division of Highways and the county before construction can begin.

Apple Valley Waste is an investor in the project.
