Case Study: Covanta Invests in York County
“Covanta has been an excellent partner in operating our Resource Recovery Center. This contract provides our county and residents long-term stability and ensures that this facility will continue to be a key part of York County’s sustainable solid waste management infrastructure in the future.”
Executive Director, York County Solid Waste Authority
The extension of a long-term operation and maintenance contract between Covanta and York County Solid Waste Authority in Pennsylvania became effective at the beginning of 2016. The new agreement ensures that Covanta will continue providing first-class maintenance and operation of the county’s EfW facility located in Manchester Township for the next two decades, providing stability and reduced business risk for York County, its residents and the Authority.
The extension reflects the successful and mutually beneficial collaboration between the Authority and Covanta. Ongoing investments totaling $30 million will help ensure that the facility maintains rigorous performance and safety standards, as well as reliable operations. In addition, the Authority is investing approximately $65 million in site improvements to improve the customer interface and safety and prepare the site for eventual expansion of facility-processing capacity.
