South Bayside Waste Management Authority

Diverting Organics From Solid Waste to Regional Wastewater Treatment Plants for Anaerobic Digestion and Renewable Fuel Generation

The South Bayside Waste Management Authority (SBWMA), also known as ReThinkWaste, already had a high landfill diversion rate—over 50%–but recognized there was room to increase its organics diversion. To support municipalities striving to comply with California’s new requirement to divert 75% of organic waste from landfills by 2025, ReThinkWaste needed a system that was up to the challenge of recovering organic material from source separated organics and solid waste streams. They selected a turnkey Anaergia solid waste processing line to add to their main transfer station and recycling facility. The line includes Anaergia’s proprietary OREX® organics extrusion technology as well as bag opening, shredding, and Organics Polishing Systems.
