Adam Ortiz, director for the Department of the Environment for Prince George's County stated:
We look forward to reviewing the best technologies to help us divert waste from the landfill and recover this valuable resource for renewable energy. The private public partnership will be beneficial to our Country, our communities, and the environment.

Headquartered in the Mid-Atlantic region, we are very familiar with the solid waste management landscape in Maryland and feel that we are uniquely positioned to provide valuable insight to help Prince George's County address its future needs.
