Cumberland County Technology Education Center (CCTEC) 2020 graduate, Devin MacAvoy, has put his education in automotive technology to practice at The Authority. A full-time Mechanic Apprentice in the Fleet Shop, he recently completed a design fabrication and welding project on a D6 Bulldozer at the Solid Waste Complex.
The CCIA’s Solid Waste Complex is 275 acre campus that includes the landfill cells, treatment plant, recycling facilities, vehicle maintenance garage, administration building and gas-to-energy plant. Currently, the Solid Waste Complex is undergoing preparation of three cells on 35 acres which is projected to accommodate the county until 2041.
The CCIA is the only Solid Waste Complex in the State of New Jersey with a direct discharge permit for treated leachate. The treatment facility consists of a combination of both an ultra-filtration and reverse osmosis system used to decontaminate leachate— the liquid sludge that results from rain water and other liquids filtering through the landfill. Leachate must be collected and treated.
