The waste is then transported to Waste 2 Management landfills for permanent disposal. Much of this waste, including food, paper and cardboard, is organic in nature. Anaerobic bacteria digest this organic waste and produce 6 methane gas and carbon dioxide as natural byproducts. To complete the cycle, the electricity is delivered via utility transmission lines to residential and commercial customers. 3 The methane gas is recovered via a series of wells drilled into the landfill. These wells are connected by a common pipe system that collects the gas and transports it to a nearby compression facility. 5 The gas is piped to an electricity 4 generating plant where it is used At the compression facility, as fuel to turn engines or the landfill gas is de-watered, turbines to generate electricity. filtered and pressurized.
