Waste-to-Energy: How Syracuse makes clean energy from waste

Onondaga County Resource Recovery Agency (OCCRA) in Syracuse, New York, has a recycling and composting program that's pretty unique. The agency runs a Waste-to-Energy facility through Covanta energy that takes the waste that can't be recycled or composted and turns it in to clean energy. This facility helps to divert waste away from landfills and produce something useful. I interviewed Kathy Carroll from Covanta Energy about this process.
