Covanta extends operations partnership with the Town of Huntington, New York

US-headed waste management major Covanta Holdings Corporation (Covanta) has announced that the Town of Huntington, New York (NY) has extended its partnership for the operation of the 25 MWe Huntington Resource Recovery Facility (HRRF). The five-year agreement continues the successful collaboration between Huntington and Covanta through December 1, 2024.

The continuation of our partnership with Covanta provides our community with a solution to waste management that preserves our valuable natural resources while generating clean energy. This is a winning combination for our residents and one that complements our continued efforts to be a more sustainable community, said Town of Huntington Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci.

Since 1991, the Huntington Resource Recovery Facility (HRRF) has served as the cornerstone of the sustainable solid waste management systems for the towns of Huntington and Smithtown.

The Towns of Huntington and Smithtown have developed a leading waste management system that includes Energy-from-Waste for any residual waste that remains after recycling. We are proud of our work in providing safe, reliable waste disposal and a source of clean energy, and look forward to serving these communities for many years to come, said Rick Sandner, Vice Presiden, and General Manager of Covanta’s New York/New Jersey region.

The energy-from-waste (EfW) facility processes up to 1 000 tons of municipal solid waste per day and generates 25 MW electricity – enough to power 20,000 Long Island homes around the clock. The facility also recycles more than 7 000 tons of metal annually.

in East Northport processes 750 tons per day of municipal solid waste (MSW) serving the towns
