Wheelabrator Concord

Wheelabrator Concord provides dependable, environmentally safe disposal of up to 500 tons per day of post-recycled waste from homes and businesses in more than two dozen communities as a local fuel to generate as much as 14 MW of clean, renewable electricity for sale to the local utility. The Wheelabrator Concord energy-from-waste facility creates a local-energy ecosystem providing enough power to supply the electrical needs of 14,000 New Hampshire homes as well as its own operations.

By using waste materials as a fuel to produce electricity, we offer an environmentally friendly waste disposal option and reduce dependence on landfills.

Wheelabrator Concord has a strong commitment and track record of providing a safe and healthy environment for our neighbors to enjoy for years to come. Wheelabrator Concord is committed to supporting Concord-area organizations such as the Concord YMCA, Penacook Community Center, Concord Payson Center for Cancer Care and the Concord Education Fund.

“Our partnership has resulted in safe, efficient and reliable disposal of nearly three million tons of COOP waste. We look forward to continuing this positive relationship.”

- Jim Presher, Director, Concord Regional Solid Waste Resource Recovery Cooperative (COOP)
