Granger Celebrates Five Year Anniversary with BWL by Giving Back

By FOX 47 News . CREATED Nov 20, 2013

Five years ago, Granger and the BWL partnered to bring renewable energy to residents in the greater Lansing area.

When trash generated by greater Lansing residents decomposes in a landfill, it produces landfill gas. The recovered landfill gas fuels engine generator sets that produce electricity. In Lansing, that electricity is then sold to BWL.

Through this partnership, both Granger and the BWL have helped to reduce emissions of methane and decrease the need to generate energy from fossil fuels. In addition, the partnership has helped to create jobs associated with the design, construction and operation of energy recovery systems.

To celebrate five successful years, Granger and BWL will announce plans for a donation that will help local families. Find out more at 10 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 21.

Granger collects tomorrow’s energy. A local, family-owned waste collection company, Granger provides waste hauling, disposal and recycling services and produces renewable energy from landfill gas. Visit to learn more.
