BUCKSPORT – Paper mills around the state are not fairing any better, and demolition of Bucksports Verso Mill is scheduled to begin.
Company officials at Aim Development, plan to start demolition at the 250-acre waterfront site next Monday. The Verso Paper Corporation shut down in late 2014 and sold to Aim, a Canadian firm specializing in recycling metal.
The last permit needed for demolition, was issued by the town code enforcement officer, on November 18th. The company has already dismantled and removed some of the equipment. Now it plans to take down buildings.
The entire project is expected to take about a year.
