City of Quincy, Covanta join hands for waste management services

CITY OF QUINCY, US: Covanta SEMASS, a subsidiary of Covanta Energy Corporation, announced a new agreement with the City of Quincy, US for sustainable waste disposal at the Covanta SEMASS energy-from-waste facility in Rochester. The City of Quincy generates approximately 35,000 tonne of municipal solid waste annually.

The agreement will provide Quincy with one-stop shopping for sustainable waste disposal and the potential for recycling services after the City’s current recycling contract expires in 2013. Cities and towns across New England have responded enthusiastically to Covanta’s bundled service offering because they are able to save money on disposal costs and get credit back in the form of a rebate for recycling. The new agreement with Quincy is slated to begin in July 2013 with the contract running for ten years with mutual extension options after the initial term.

Quincy will continue to utilize the municipal solid waste transfer station in Braintree, MA which Covanta operates. The transfer station is currently undergoing construction for improvements including design and technology to control odour from the facility and reduce noise from operations. Solid waste collected at the facility is transferred to the Covanta SEMASS energy-from-waste facility where it is combusted to generate clean, renewable electricity for approximately 75,000 southeastern Massachusetts homes.

“Covanta is thrilled to continue our relationships with City of Quincy and the tri-town alliance of Quincy, Braintree and Weymouth. We look forward to provide world-class service to these municipalities at the state-of-the-art Braintree transfer station and our energy-from-waste facility in Rochester in the many years ahead,” said Stephen Diaz, Vice President and Regional Business Manager, Covanta Energy.
