Did You Know
Since beginning operation in early 1989, SRRF has processed over 4.9 million tons of garbage and generated over 2.4 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity. 

The Solid Waste Association of North America’s (SWANA) Applied Research Foundation’s (ARP) recent study comparing air emissions of WTE facilities to fossil fuel power plants, concluded, “the carbon dioxide emissions levels of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) are significantly superior to those of coal, oil and natural gas!  Read the report.

Research indicates that communities like ours with waste-to-energy facilities, generally favor combining recycling with WTE for a complete management of household waste.  As a result, these communities contribute to recycling rates greater than the national average!  Our County and Cities believe in the compatibility of WTE with recycling and therefore they encourage recycling before letting the waste end up at the SRRF.
