LITTLE CHUTE – The Outagamie County Recycling & Solid Waste (OCRSW) landfill is officially open for business.

Representatives OCRSW and Terreva Renewables celebrated the completion of the new, multimillion-dollar renewable natural gas (RNG) facility with a ribbon cutting March 1.

“It’s a great way to make use of the landfill’s environmentally managed byproducts by turning them into positives that are both good for the environment and provide support through the shared proceeds from the sale of the gas,” Outagamie County Executive Tom Nelson said.

The facility collects raw landfill methane gas and converts it into RNG, which will be used predominantly by fleet owners with vehicles, such as large trucks and buses that run on RNG instead of traditional diesel fuel.

A portion of the funds generated from the sale of RNG will be returned to the county and used to help stabilize tipping fees (fees paid by someone disposing of waste to a landfill) and support OCRSW’s internal recycling and solid waste programs.
