Warren County District Landfill
The first step in bringing solid waste to the landfill is to have your vehicle weighed at the scale house.
The PCFAWC is working to become a leading environmental authority in the state of New Jersey. As the Authority that manages the Warren County District Landfill, the PCFAWC has actively sought out and implemented new technologies and innovations that provide residents with high quality and cost effective waste management service.
Working as a team with the Resource Recovery Facility, the PCFAWC has found numerous ways to reduce the amount of non-recyclable solid waste that is put into the landfill.
The Resource Recovery Facility, or RRF, processes solid waste, via combustion, into energy. The energy is then sold to General Public Utilities. The by-product of incineration is ash, which is disposed of in the landfill. In addition, ferrous metals (scrap iron) recovered from combustion ash is stockpiled at the landfill, before being sold by the ton to industries that use recycled iron in their products.
In November of 2006 the Landfill Gas To Energy Plant became operational. The plant consists of two internal combustion engines that burn the landfill gas and generate electricity. The energy generated from this facility is used to power some of the landfill buildings and the balance is sold to public energy utilities.
