A Key Component of City of Modesto and
Stanislaus County’s Environmentally-Sound
Solid Waste Management System!

Welcome to SRRF

In the 1980’s, environmental concerns and the political realities of expanding or siting new landfills caused local officials to look at new approaches for waste handling.  Waste-to-Energy was selected as the alternative with the greatest potential for successful development in the County.

In August 1985, through a nationally advertised competitive procurement, Covanta Energy, Inc. (formerly known as Ogden Martin Systems, Inc.) of Fairfield, New Jersey, was selected as the contractor to build an 800-ton per day solid waste disposal, resource recovery and electric generating facility on a site adjacent to the Fink Road Landfill. The facility was developed by Ogden Martin pursuant to a Service Agreement with the City of Modesto and the County of Stanislaus.
