Group hopes to reuse debris from the demolition of the Remington factory in Glen Park | Company

GLEN PARK — A group of Black River enthusiasts fear the demolition of the Remington paper mill is imminent and could begin as early as this week.

In March, part of the limestone wall collapsed into the Black River. The property, on Route 12E and County Road 190, is owned by National Grid.
