Colonie Landfill collects the landfill gas for conversion to electricity. Aria Energy produces
electricity equivalent to the consumption of approximately 3,000 homes from the collected gas.
Beginning in mid-August 2021, Colonie Landfill will be installing several additional landfill gas extraction wells in recently developed areas of the facility. This activity involves excavating/drilling into in-place wastes to install the wells. We hope to have these new wells connected to the landfill gas to energy plant by the beginning of September.
