Landfill Gas to Energy
In our goal to maximize the value of all materials, we have found an important role for waste that cannot be recycled. Through our landfill gas plants, Waste Management creates clean, green energy from ordinary waste.
Our 110 landfill-gas-to-energy projects currently generate enough energy to power 400,000 homes every day offsetting almost two million tons of coal per year. These projects also reduce emissions of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. It's a true win-win for both companies and communities like yours.
