About the Project

Muscatine Organic Waste Recycling Center

The Muscatine Organic Waste Recycling Center is one of just three municipally owned facilities in the U.S. with the ability to separate food waste from its packaging. This allows the processing of packaged foods that would otherwise be landfilled. The captured organic waste is blended and fed into the same anerobic digesters that clean the city’s municipal wastewater. Recycling was a cornerstone of this award-winning project, with many of its facilities being repurposed and recycled from previous uses. Stanley Consultants was the prime consultant and engineer, providing a variety of studies, assessments, design concepts, preliminary and final design and permitting. The city’s long-term vision is to produce enough methane to power vehicles, inject in gas pipelines or produce renewable electricity situated in a microgrid to supply heat and power while attenuating supply and demand fluctuations.
