The Union County Resource Recovery Facility, operating as Covanta Union, Inc., is located on the banks of the Rahway River and began commercial operation in June 1994, serving the residents of Union County, New Jersey. The facility processes approximately 1,500 tons of solid waste each day into enough electrical energy to power some 30,000 homes and businesses. The facility runs entirely on the energy it produces, with the remaining 39 megawatts of renewable energy sold through a merchant power marketer. Designed and built by Covanta, the facility is owned by the Union County Utilities Authority and operated by Covanta under a long-term lease agreement.
