What types of solid wastes are acceptable at EWV?
EWV can accept most mixed household waste more commonly known as trash or garbage that come from our homes for conversion into a solid fuel. Examples of acceptable mixed solid waste include product packaging, clothing, paper, cardboard, plastic, metal cans, newspaper, food scraps and other similar types of mixed waste.
How does it work?
- Purchase Bag Tags by visiting the office. Questions can be emailed to [email protected].
- Credit cards are the only acceptable payment.
- Each bag brought to the facility must have one Bag Tag on it – this must be placed in a clearly visible place on the bag such as the side or the top. Please do not place Bag Tags on the bottom of the bags.
- For the safety of our employees, the maximum weight per bag is 35 pounds.
- Receiving hours are from 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM Monday through Friday. We are closed on major holidays.
- When you enter the facility, please flash your headlights or honk your horn from the parking area in front of the office for assistance. A company representative will guide you through the process.
