Tour Lee County Solid Waste’s world class integrated waste management campus

As part of the Renewable Energy from Waste Conference, attendees are invited to attend a tour of Lee County, Florida’s world class integrated waste management system. The Lee County Integrated Waste Management System campus in Fort Myers, Florida, is a 300-acre site that houses a waste-to-energy (WTE) facility, a single-stream material recovery facility (MRF), a construction and demolition (C&D) recycling facility and a transfer station.

The WTE facility receives around 550,000 to 560,000 tons of residential and commercial garbage per year and produces 59.7 megawatts (MW) of electricity per hour. Fifteen percent of the electricity used to power the campus, while the rest is sold on the open market.

Attendees will have the opportunity to see how the WTE facility and recycling facilities work together as a community resource to create revenue, reduce the community’s carbon footprint and greatly reduce material going to landfill.
