The Kent County Waste to Energy facility is critical to Kent County’s integrated solid waste system:

• It generates electricity for 11,000 homes, about the number of residences in the City of Walker

• It’s a baseload energy source diversifying Michigan’s renewable energy portfolio

• We’ve recovered over 124,000 tons of scrap steel that would have otherwise not been recycled

• We preserved 10 years of South Kent Landfill airspace, extending the life of the landfill

• We provide good jobs for 50 employees

• It generated 100,943,000 KWh of electricity in 2016
