Event description

Description

Located in Harrisburg, the Susquehanna Resource Management Complex (SRMC), is home to the nation’s first waste-to-energy facility. Owned by LCSWMA, the SRMC is part of a larger system that serves the solid waste management needs of both Dauphin County and Lancaster County. The SRMC acts as the drop-off location for waste haulers who collect refuse in Dauphin County and the City of Harrisburg. Central to the SRMC is an 800 tons per day waste-to-energy (WTE) facility that is capable of producing 23 megawatts of renewable energy (electricity). Through a power purchase agreement with the Commonwealth’s Department of General Services, the majority of the electricity produced is used to power State Capitol buildings. During the tour, guests will visit the new Transfer/Maintenance/Administration (TMA) Building where construction/demolition waste loads and other small customer deliveries are taken, the tipping floor where an overhead crane mixes waste in the storage pit and the closed ash monofill where ash is staged before it is transported to the Frey Farm Landfill for use as alternate daily cover.


The FREE Susquehanna Resource Management Complex tour lasts approximately 60 minutes.


Due to limitations of the site and the safety of our guests, children must be at least 8 years of age and accompanied by an adult.


Visitors are required to wear clothing that is appropriate for an industrial environment. Closed-toed shoes are mandatory. Sandals, flip-flops or open toe/open heel shoes are prohibited. For the safety of our guests, any individual not appropriately dressed will be asked to refrain from participating in the tour.


The Susquehanna Resource Management Complex is located at 1670 South 19th Street, Harrisburg, PA 17104. After turning into the site from 19th Street, proceed towards the large brick building. Make your first right into the parking lot. Enter the facility through the double doors.
