A state-of-the-art landfill, recycling center, composting facility and collection fleet are located at the ACUA Environmental Park in Egg Harbor Township.
ACUA operates a 40 million gallon-per-day wastewater facility in Atlantic City, NJ, which is powered by renewable energy.
We are committed to seeking out the most sustainable and effective technologies to power our facilities and operations.
ACUA is installing a temporary cap to cover approximately 30 acres of landfill space.
The temporary cap will prevent gas from escaping the sides of the landfill and direct it towards the existing gas collection systems. It will also keep water from infiltrating the landfill, which will reduce the overall production of gas as well as prevent the accumulation of leachate along the side slopes – all actions that will decrease odors.
The project will take roughly 3 months to complete and will cost approximately $2 million.
What happens to your waste after it leaves the curb? A recent episode of CNN’s “Inside Man with Morgan Spurlock” set out to answer just that.
If you missed the episode, we’ve recapped what was discussed compared to what happens here in Atlantic County.
The ACUA is fitted with a landfill gas to energy collection system that prevents gas generated inside the landfill from escaping into the atmosphere. To project helps us (1) combat odors and (2) produce energy that is used to power the entire Environmental Park facility.
