Landfill Diversion

In 2009, we partnered with Republic Services to better understand the waste that was being sent to the landfill. During this process we determined that approximately 40% of our headquarter's waste could be recycled (cardboard, paper, plastics and wood) and the other 60% could be sent to the Covanta Steamplant for an alternative recycle solution. Changes were made and education started to make ADTRAN the first large company in Cummings Research Park 100% landfill diversion. This was also the beginning of our Green Team.

Covanta Huntsville produces nearly 180,000 pounds of steam per hour, which travels through a six-mile long export line to meet all of Redstone Arsenal's heating and air conditioning needs. The facility processes 690 tons per day of solid waste and sewage sludge and is equipped with four fossil-fuel package boilers, which allow steam to be available 100% of the time.
