Renewable Energy -- Landfill Gas
 
07:28
As communities grow, the demand for renewable energy is increasing. Waste Management is helping to fill this need by using waste from homes and businesses across North America to generate electricity. Currently, Waste Management produces enough electricity to power more than 400,000 homes through a source of renewable energy called landfill gas. Today's modern landfill uses advanced engineering to dispose of waste and protect the environment. At more than 80 Waste Management sites, renewable energy plants produce enough electricity using naturally occurring landfill gas. The process begins when waste is collected. One person produces an average of 4.5 pounds of trash every day. While some waste can be recycled, a portion is taken to a landfill for safe disposal. Once inside the landfill, waste decomposes to produce methane. Landfill gas, comprised of about 50% methane is collected by using an underground network of pipes and wells. From this network, the gas is drawn to a renewable energy facility's compression system where the gas is de-watered, pressurized, and filtered to make it clean. When landfill gas first enters the system, it passes through a filter which removes any large pieces of debris and some liquids that may have become mixed with the gas. After initial filtering, it enters a compressor, which raises its pressure until it's high enough for the gas to be used as a fuel. During compression, the temperature of the gas rises and must be cooled down by an after-cooler. Inside the after-cooler, the temperature of the gas is lowered which allows for any remaining moisture to be condensed. The gas is then filtered a second time to remove the condensed moisture. At this stage, the gas is reheated to prevent any further condensation and is ready to be used as a renewable energy fuel. The whole process from start to finish takes seconds. Waste Management renewable energy facilities use either an engine or a turbine to generate power. Both follow the same basic principle to produce electricity. An engine that runs on landfill gas really isn't that different from a car engine. It's equipped with pistons, an air filter, exhaust, radiators, and even batteries. Landfill gas enters the engine and is combusted, causing the pistons to spin a drive-shaft. The drive-shaft is connected to a generator, which converts the power into electricity. The electricity is then sent to state-of-the-art control systems, which ensure that the plant is meeting the needs of the utility. Control systems direct electricity to transformers located on-site which either raise or lower the voltage. Low voltage electricity is used to power equipment within the renewable energy facility. While high voltage electricity is exported to the utility grid to supply energy for communities and businesses. With new plants appearing every year at Waste Management landfills, the amount of renewable energy we provide is positioned to grow for years to come. At Waste Management, our goal is to be the industry leader in finding innovative uses for waste, whether it's through recycling, composting, or creating renewable energy. Waste Management is committed to using trash as a resource to help communities meet their energy needs. To learn more, visit http://www.thinkgreen.com

Florida: Let's All Recycle Often and Recycle Right!
 
03:10
As Florida residents, we all have an opportunity to contribute to a growing recycling success story, by recycling often and recycling right. This helps preserve valuable landfill space and saving precious natural resources, like trees and energy. Here in our state, forward thinking companies like Waste Management are introducing and expanding single-stream recycling programs for both residential and commercial customers. That commitment is helping county and municipal customers improve their recycling rate to meet the state-wide goal of 75% recycling by 2020. Recycling is great for the environment, but it's important to recycle right. Take a look at my neighbor down the street. We call him "Contamo King" because he puts so many contaminants and non-recyclables into his recycling cart. That negates all of the good work we do to recycle right. Non-recyclables contamination slows down the recycling process, increases the cost of recycling, and decreases the value of the end product, and that's bad news for everyone. So to recycle right, whether you're using a cart or bin, do not place the following in your recycle container: plastic bags of any kind, including grocery and dry-cleaning bags, and do not place your recyclables in plastic bags; polystyrene and foam containers; food or yard waste; hoses, extension cords, and hangers; electronic waste including cell phones, computer parts, batteries, and small appliances; automotive parts such as disc pads, tire rims, and car batteries; motor oil, paint, hazardous chemicals, or propane tanks; food-soiled cardboard, hot and cold beverage cups, paper plates, towels and tissues; dishes, cooking utensils, pots and pans, coffee mugs or ceramic pots; and no liquids of any kind. And please, do not be a "Contamo King." Do not use your recycle container for extra garbage space. Remember, it's easy to recycle right, especially with single-stream recycling, where all recyclables go into one cart or bin -- no separating required. Here's what you can recycle: paper, including newspapers, junk mail, magazines, office paper, and phone books; paperboard, such as cereal, pasta and tissue boxes, and small flattened cardboard; plastic bottles and containers including water and drink bottles, milk jugs, detergent and shampoo bottles (remember to empty and rinse, please); aluminum cans, and steel and tin cans; and glass bottles and jars. Companies like Waste Management are working in partnership with counties, cities, businesses, and communities in our area to make recycling easier and more cost-effective, and each of us can step up too, to make it happen. Together, let's all recycle often and recycle right! To learn more, visit https://www.wm.com

Waste Management and energyNOW!: Using "trash gas" to Fuel Waste Management Trucks

Watch to learn how Waste Management's Altamont Landfill uses waste to create biofuel that powers nearly 300 of our quieter, cleaner burning natural gas trucks. The Altamont Landfill successfully demonstrates the conversion of landfill gas to clean burning fuel.

Waste Management Sustainability Consulting
 
01:42
Corporate environmental consulting is actually a business strategy for the future. It helps us really look at the material inputs, the raw materials we use within our organizations and the ways of extending the life of those or reducing the amount that we use. It is very important for companies or entities to always define their metrics upfront to set boundaries so they can aptly communicate to shareholders or the public their sustainable performance, change, or impact that they had on the environment. We have different tools that we can use to help them consolidate their data and then kind of slice it and dice it for different purposes -- perhaps internal communications, external communications, stockholders, and other stakeholders. If you look at the terms "zero" "wasting" and flip it, it's actually "wasting zero" and it's looking at all those materials, things that we would normally throw away and realizing there is no away. It is important to define what waste is, whether it's energy waste, whether it's material waste, or some other form of waste. For example, one of our customers, their definition is 90 percent of diversion from a baseline of 2,007. So, that's an example of how we might apply zero waste. The key to sustainability is that it cannot be a one-time project. It needs to be driven into the DNA of your organization. It's a new business strategy; it's the next way of doing business.
