Sanitary Sewer Expansion Project & Food Waste to Energy Facility News

food waste to energy

North Neshannock Road/North Darby Road/South Darby Road Sewer Expansion Project

This project, to extend low-pressure sanitary sewers to serve properties and alleviate malfunctioning on lot systems in these areas of the City, is anticipated to be under construction in the late winter and early spring of 2020. Once construction is ready to begin, the Hermitage Municipal Authority and the City will provide updated information to property owners regarding construction details, when connections to the new system can be made, contractors licensed to make connections and other related information.

Food Waste to Energy

Food waste continues to roll into the Food Waste to Energy facility at the Broadway Road treatment plant. This facility produces electricity that ultimately offsets electricity costs of operating the wastewater treatment plant that serves the City of Hermitage as well as parts of South Pymatuning Township, Clark Borough, Jefferson Township, Shenango Township and Wheatland Borough. A typical month has 400 to 500 tons of waste food products processed through the Food Waste to Energy facility. These products are diverse and have included expired dairy products, inedible fruits and vegetables, bulk dog food, cheese, sauces and purees, meatballs, condiments, and the list goes on. These items, normally trucked to and deposited in a landfill, are being used by our facility to create energy by cooking the waste to generate methane gas, which is then converted to electricity.

Watch for our new logo on department vehicles as new vehicles come into the fleet.
