ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the greenhouse project completed by the Northern Tier Solid Waste Authority (NTSWA) at its Bradford County, Pennsylvania landfill. A hydroponic farmer was contracted for the greenhouse's daily operations. The agency sells any surplus electricity to the local power grid. In addition to harnessing the waste heat from the landfill gas engine, the greenhouse promotes agricultural employment in the area, exhibits sustainable agriculture and demonstrates the viability of public/private partnerships in the waste industry.
