Trash Solutions: Waste to Energy

WJFF - Close to Home with Leif Johansen by Leif Johansen

Episode notes
What if we could solve our landfill problem and power our homes with a single solution? In this episode, Dutchess County Executive Bill O'Neil and Dutchess County Resource Recovery Agency Executive Director Kerry Russell drop by to talk about the Dutchess County Resource Recovery Facility, a waste-to-energy plant that eliminates most of the county's garbage while also generating enough electricity to power 10,000 homes in the Hudson Valley.
