Recycling Orange CountyThrough their Renewable Energy Program, they produce 380,000 megawatt-hours of electricity annually by reusing landfill gas through power-generation partnerships.

Recycling is a very important mission for the agency.  The counties 3 landfills are at least 10-47 years from reaching capacity.  Currently, it is estimated that the Olinda Alpha will reach capacity in 2031, Frank R. Bowerman in 2053, and the Prima Deshecha in 2067.  However, with population growing at around 5% yearly, without a sustainable and well managed recycling program, these estimates will quickly diminish.
