Do we recycle?
(We have for years and at no extra cost to our customers)
When most people think
of recycling they think of having to separate everything into multiple containers
that they place at the curb for special pickup.
That is not the case with us
you never have to separate or even touch your waste/trash. We recycle by taking all of our customers
waste/trash to Covanta’s Trash to Energy Plant so everything including
household garbage can be turned into energy.
It reduces the volume of waste to
be disposed of by 90% and generates valuable renewable energy. It also results
in a net reduction of greenhouse gas emissions when compared to conventional landfill
It is the most responsible alternative to landfill disposal.
Did you know?
- Over 250 million tons of trash are buried each year in
- The average person dumps 4.5 pounds of waste into
landfills every day?
- Or that the 250 million tons of trash in landfills is
enough to bury 16,000 football fields, 10 feet deep?
- Or that if more people followed the 4Rs (reduce, reuse,
recycle and recover energy-from-waste) we’d reduce greenhouse gases by a
gigaton – the equivalent of closing 1,000 large coal-fired power plants
and building 2,000,000 one megawatt windmills?
process 20 million tons of solid waste each year which conserves over 25
million cubic yards of landfill space and generates 9 million megawatt hours of
electricity - enough clean, renewable energy to power for more than one million
They also recycle over 550,000 tons of ferrous metal and non-ferrous
metal annually. The equivalent amount of steal that would be used to build
nearly six Golden Gate Bridges and in the production of over three billion
aluminum beverage cans.
