The Solid Waste Complex (SWC) has been serving the 14 municipalities of Cumberland County since October 13, 1987. The 239-acre site located on Jesse Bridge Road is home to the Scale House, Administration Building, Customer Drop Off Center, Equipment Storage and Maintenance Building, refueling stations for gasoline and diesel, Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) filling station, Water Treatment Facility, Leachate Reject Evaporator System, Automated Truck Wash Center, Landfill Gas-to-Energy Plant, mini-MRF Recycling Center, storm water detention and sedimentation basins, and soil borrow area for daily cover.
To the north of the Solid Waste Complex property sits a 121-acre redevelopment area where The Authority’s new Administration Building is located. The additional acreage will contribute to future development and projects at The Authority, such as a Synagrow Biosolid Facility and solar fields partnered with Intersect Energy.
