RAHWAY, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 03/06/13 -- Covanta Union, Inc., operator of the Union County Resource Recovery Facility in Rahway, recently provided a $20,000 charitable contribution to the JFK Community Center, located adjacent to the Covanta facility which generates clean energy from Union County's household waste. The JFK Community Center provides students and families a safe, fun and constructive environment with services including day-care, after school and summer programs in addition to services for senior citizens.

"I want to thank Covanta Union for their significant contribution to the JFK Community Center. I believe their continued support illustrates Covanta's sincere commitment to the community and the residents of Rahway," said David Brown, Vice-President of the Rahway Municipal Council and JFK Community Center Board Member.

The JFK Community Center is also home to the Rahway Local Organizing Committee, a program whose mission is to develop, implement and administrate programs that foster physical, social and intellectual development to the youth of Rahway.

"Covanta and the Union County Utilities Authority are partners in providing sustainable waste disposal and clean renewable electricity for the residents of Rahway and Union County. I am pleased that Covanta demonstrates its commitment to our host community of Rahway by supporting the JFK Community Center and the families who utilize its services," said Daniel Sullivan, Union County Freeholder and Executive Director of the Union County Utilities Authority.

Along with financial support, Covanta Union's Facility Manager, Alan Harleston, regularly volunteers his time and expertise to advise the Community Center on financial and operational matters. "At Covanta, we are always looking for different ways to positively impact our community. We are very proud to support an organization that provides such positive services for the community and the local youth," said Harleston.

The Covanta Union Energy-from-Waste Facility processes approximately 1,500 tons of municipal solid waste per day into 40 megawatts of clean, renewable electricity - enough to power approximately 30,000 homes in Union County. Energy-from-Waste facilities complement local recycling efforts and reduce greenhouse gases by avoiding methane from landfills, offsetting greenhouse gases from fossil fuel electrical production and recycling metals.
