Republic unveils Georgia landfill gas-to-energy systems

Three Atlanta area landfills are now generating 24 megawatts of electricity.

Phoenix-based Republic Services Inc. and Ponte Vedra, Florida-based Mas Energy LLC have unveiled a series of landfill-gas-to-energy projects in the Atlanta area. The three systems are located at landfills in the cities of Buford, Griffin and Winder, Georgia. Together, the facilities are capable of generating 24.1 megawatts (mW) of electricity, or enough to power 15,665 households, according to Republic Services.

"The modern landfill presents new opportunity to harness energy from yesterday's waste and convert it to meet tomorrow's energy needs," says Jamey Amick, area president of Republic Services. "We are proud to partner once again with Mas Energy to generate a renewable energy source that makes a meaningful and lasting environmental difference in the state of Georgia."
