Reducing Landfill Waste
Located in Westbury, New York, Covanta Hempstead is an award-winning Waste-to-Energy Facility that serves the Town of Hempstead 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.
We are an active community partner and support a range of initiatives such as Wreaths Across America and encouraging STEM education for local students. Recently, the facility launched an American Flag retirement program in collaboration with local veteran groups. The program retires old and worn flags in accordance with the U.S. flag code.
