WM Breaks Ground on WTE Facility

Houston-based Waste Management has announced construction of a 1.4 megawatt, waste-to-energy facility at a municipally owned landfill near Syracuse, New York.

"Waste Management pioneered landfill gas to energy technology over two decades ago, and we operate more of these facilities than any other company in North America," said Paul Pabor, vice president of renewable energy for Waste Management, in a press release. "As the largest operator of landfills, we understand how landfills operate and how best to leverage this valuable resource."

Waste Management operates waste-to-energy facilities at 112 of its landfills.
