The Jacksonville, Fla.-based waste and recycling company said in a news release the new facility on its Wolf Creek Landfill cost $4.5 million. Advanced Disposal said it will provide significant environmental benefits to Georgia’s Twiggs County and the surrounding area by capturing landfill gas and using it as a fuel to produce green energy.
The facility will provide electricity to power 1,650 homes. The environmental gain equals removing 22,700 passenger vehicles from the highways. The installation began last year.
