Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation’s Central Landfill is the primary solid waste disposal facility in the state. The landfill accepts only Rhode Island-generated waste and serves about 97 percent of the state’s residents. The landfill gas management system feeds the nearby 30-megawatt landfill-gas-to-energy facility.

Key Components:

  • Landfill Gas Collection System Design
  • Air Permit Compliance Reporting
