Broward County (the County), which is located on the southeast coast of Florida, is currently faced with an ash management and metals recovery decision. The County has two mass burn resource recovery plants and they process a combined total of approximately 1.65 million tons of MSW. The ash residue from these two facilities is currently landfilled. At one facility, the South Broward Waste-to-Energy Facility (the South County Facility), ferrous was being recovered at the ash monofill using mobile equipment, as the plant was not equipped with metals recovery equipment. But as market prices dropped, so did the ferrous metals recovery. This has adversely affected the useful life of the ash monofill, owned by the County. The County is looking for a cost–effective alternative for an on–line metals (ferrous and non–ferrous) recovery system.
