The one-word title of this post pretty much sums up the picture below by our photographer Laura Wehde, which shows Bridgewater City Councilman Phil Heiberger helping with the cleanup Wednesday of an abandoned Bridgewater meat plant where meat was rotting for months. We as citizens expect a lot from our elected officials, but I don’t think anybody expects them to don hazmat gear and plunge into an abandoned building filled with rancid meat and maggots.

Heiberger wasn’t the only Bridgewater resident to volunteer in the cleanup. Click here to read the rest of the story, and click here to see a video about it.

  1. Such a shame! That meat could have been donated to a nutrition/non profit site.

  2. Hopefully the previous owner has the resources to reimburse the city for it’s expenses (and then some,) when they sue him. He should be arrested, there must have been some laws broken when you consider he could have caused a disease outbreak, not to mention the environmental concerns. How did this go unnoticed for so long? Even if it was frozen until March (unlikely), it’s still been reeking for months.
