WIN Waste in Saugus

The WIN Waste Innovations waste-to-energy facility in Saugus converts up to 1,500 tons of residential and commercial waste into renewable energy every day that is transferred to the electric grid to power communities and our own operations. This local, circular process:

• offsets more than 343,000 barrels of oil or 98,484 tons of coal needed to create the equivalent amount of energy

•powers more than 16,800 homes with energy from waste

• eliminates tractor trailer trips to and from landfills, and diverts waste from our already near-capacity landfills

• recycles more than 4,200 tons of metal annually
