Republic Services Roosevelt: Generating Power from Refuse

I have recently spent some time with Bullseye Creative, an ad agency in Seattle, working to produce some internal and promotional media for a few facilities run by Republic Services, a national waste-management company. This facility in Roosevelt, WA is fascinating: while essentially a landfill, they capture the methane gas produced by the waste and produce over 20 MW of energy, which powers most of the region and has an excess that is sent to California.

The facility is beautiful and looks fairly pristine, and is as clean and green as waste management comes. My favorite aspect: rather than use poison or guns to control their seagull population, they have an on-site falconer. More to come as additional pieces are finished!
