Susquehanna Resource Management Complex

Home to the country’s first waste-to-energy (WTE) facility, the Susquehanna Resource Management Complex (SRMC), once known as the Harrisburg Incinerator, offers an environmentally safe and sustainable means for disposing of waste while also generating clean, renewable energy. In fact, the electricity generated during the WTE process is used to power nearby State Capitol Buildings.

WTE offers four key benefits:

  • Reduces the volume of waste by 90%, so less material is landfilled.
  • Generates energy to power local homes and businesses. As a qualified tier II renewable generator, Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) are sold to help support the financial sustainability of the facility.
  • Reduces greenhouse gas emissions by combusting the waste instead of landfilling it.
  • Recovers ferrous metals for recycling.
