What is “waste to energy?”
Waste-to-energy facilities produce clean, renewable energy through the combustion of
municipal solid waste. This process occurs in specifically designed power plants
equipped with the most modern pollution control equipment to clean emissions.
What Happens to our Recyclables?
The blue bags are brought to the Pasco County Material Recovery Facility (MRF) for processing. The materials are sorted, baled and sold to markets to be made into new products. Recycling conserves trees, water and other natural resources by reducing what people throw away and it returns valuable material to the industry for reuse.
