Reducing Landfill Waste
Located in Chester, Pennsylvania, the Delaware Valley Resource Recovery Facility is an award-winning Waste-to-Energy Facility that serves the residents of Delaware County as well as neighboring regions with reliable and sustainable waste management.
In addition to keeping waste out of landfills, we’re committed to ensuring safe operations and minimizing environmental impacts. We have been consistently recognized for exceptional operations, including OSHA’s stringent Voluntary Protection Program Star certification.
Since acquiring this facility, our operations in Chester have helped us to understand the importance of a comprehensive Environmental Justice strategy and how to effectively interact with communities. Working in partnership with local leaders in Chester and the Chester Environmental Partnership, we established a Community Outreach and Environmental Justice Policy in 2011 that commits to reduce discharges and minimize emissions and to do this in a manner which ensures meaningful community involvement.
