The Olmsted Waste-to-Energy Facility (OWEF) is one component of Olmsted County’s integrated approach to solid waste management. The OWEF produces steam and electricity which is provided to 38 buildings in the Olmsted County District Energy System (OCDES) and reduces the volume of waste that goes to a landfill by about 90%. Since opening in 1987, over two million tons of garbage has been turned into energy.
