Covanta Holding Corp. has established a new organic waste agreement with the Lake Compounce amusement park in Bristol, Conn.
The Morristown, N.J.-based waste-to-energy firm said in a news release that as part of the three-year agreement the organic waste from the theme park will be processed at a new organics recycling facility that Covanta partner Turning Earth LLC will build in central Connecticut. Covanta will provide education and training for Lake Compounce employees on organics separation.
Lake Compounce is the oldest continuously operating amusement park in North America.
“We're aiming to build a safer, greener park, and Covanta can help us achieve these goals,” said Jerry Brick, Lake Compounce general manager. “We also look forward to working closely with Covanta on expanding our partnership to include other sustainable waste solutions."
