Landfill Gas

Truck collecting waste for landfillDozer on waste at landfill

The gases created by decomposing waste in landfills can be collected and used to generate heat and electricity. As well as providing a renewable energy source, this reduces the amount of methane entering the atmosphere and contributing to the greenhouse effect.

For the last 25 years, SWANA's Landfill Gas Management Division has been the leading authority on issues surrounding landfill gas collection and utilization. The Division focuses on promoting the use of landfill gas as a sustainable and renewable energy source, and has taken an active role in working to reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions from solid waste landfills.
