Washington State Landfill Turns Trash to Natural Gas

Roosevelt, Washington, has a large landfill that produces pipeline-quality natural gas – enough for 19,000 households to run stoves, ovens, and water heaters every day.

In other parts of the country the natural gas is produced by fracking, but in this small hamlet it is produced by underground decay of leftover food, garden waste, paper and other materials mixed with the garbage.

Puget Sound Energy has signed a 20-year contract with the landfill and will have all production at the facility through 2024.
