How Waste-to-Energy Works

There are two waste-to-energy plants in Broward County which are owned and operated by Wheelabrator Technologies, Inc. The plants are capable of processing 4,500 tons of waste per day. In addition, they generate electricity, much of which is sold for use in local homes and businesses.

Waste-to-Energy Plants

In 1991, two state-of-the-art plants opened with three primary functions: (1) to provide an environmentally safe and cost-effective solid waste disposal solution; (2) to recover energy and recyclable ferrous metals; and (3) to reduce the amount of waste subject to landfilling. Each year, the plants generate enough electricity to service about 75,000 households in our community at an energy savings of 2.8 million barrels of oil.
