The Polk County Solid Waste Department, located in Polk County Minnesota, participates in a complete integrated solid waste management program that includes four other counties in northwest Minnesota. One component of the integrated solid waste management program includes the operation of a municipal waste combustor (MWC) that combusts approximately 65 tons per day of processed solid waste. The starved air design of the combustor causes low turbulence in the primary burning chamber minimizing particulate carryover through the system. This results in generation of approximately 12 tons per day of combined ash comprised of 98 to 99 percent bottom ash and 1 to 2 percent fly ash, by weight.
