Keystone SWANA Mini-Tech
Metals Recovery from MSW Ash Mini-Technical Seminar
April 16, 2020 @ 10:00 am
Frey Farm Landfill
3049 River Road
Conestoga, PA 17516
Meet at Rieber House Welcome Center (just inside the entrance)
Presentation followed by full walking tour of the INASHCO facility. Networking lunch follows tour.
Max 20 participants.
Participants will need to bring safety toe boots to walk through the facility.
The Lancaster Waste-to-Energy (WTE) Facility and Susquehanna Resource Management Complex (SRMC) burn municipal solid waste, producing enough renewable energy to power the equivalent of 45,000 area homes and businesses. After combustion, the remaining ash from both power plants is transported to LCSWMA's Frey Farm Landfill and used as daily cover.
In April 2016, LCSWMA entered into a long-term contract with Inashco North America, Inc. to site a metals recovery facility (MRF) next to the Frey Farm Landfill. While LCSWMA's WTE facilities currently use in-line metal recovery systems, only larger metals are removed. Inashco offers an advanced metals recovery system to remove pebble-sized metals present in the ash. This includes both ferrous (iron) and non-ferrous (aluminum, copper, brass, zinc, gold, silver, etc.) metals.
In 2018, Inashco constructed the MRF, which processes around 650 tons of ash each day (165,000 annually) and recovers about 22 tons of metals (8,300 tons annually). Not only does this innovative project remove and recycle metals that would have otherwise been landfilled, but it's helping to extend the life of the Frey Farm Landfill.

Natural Aquatic Life Treatment System Mini-Technical Seminar
July 9, 2020 @ 10:00 am
Greater Lebanon Refuse Authority
1610 Russell Road
Lebanon, PA 17046
The Greater Lebanon Refuse Authority has become a role model landfill because of its innovative natural wetland treatment system. Located on GLRA property is a series of 14 ponds that are used to treat leachate from an unlined area of the landfill. Vegetation around these ponds, cattails and water lilies, thrive on the nutrients in leachate and purify the water as it slowly flows through the pond system.
Eric Wiediger from Leachate Management Specialists (LMS) will introduce natural systems for handling leachate, including phyto technologies with plants and trees, enhanced evaporation utilizing wind and salt-loving microbes, and constructed wetlands. Natural systems strategically take advantage of natural processes such as solar radiation, evaporation, evapotranspiration, wind, plants, and biological activity to treat and eliminate liquid waste.
LMS is an environmental consulting and engineering firm specializing in innovative, green solutions for leachate treatment and disposal. They have collaborated with some of the largest solid waste companies and leading scientists, and their employees have worked on natural systems across North America, including national award-winning projects. Eric Wiediger is a senior project manager for LMS with more than 15 years of experience in solid waste and environmental fields. Prior to working with LMS, he spent 8 years with the PADEP Waste Program overseeing enforcement cases and inspecting solid waste facilities in the Philadelphia area.
Presentation followed by full walking tour of the Natural Aquatic Life Treatment System at GLRA. Networking lunch follows the tour.
