Covanta Hempstead Company, located on 15 acres in Westbury, NY, began commercial operation in October 1989. As Long Island's largest Energy-from-Waste facility, Covanta Hempstead provides environmentally safe municipal solid waste disposal for the nation's most populous township. It marks the first U.S. installation of a globally successful mass burn technology by Deutsche Babcock Anlagen. Covanta Hempstead accepts delivery of waste 6 days a week and processes 24 hours a day, daily. Steam created in the combustion process drives an 80-megawatt turbine generator, producing electricity for in-plant use and for sale to the local utility. The facility is the cornerstone of Hempstead's integrated waste service plan that includes an extensive curbside collection system for recyclable materials.
