Linn County Landfill Turns Trash into Energy

LINN COUNTY, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- A Linn County waste converter is turning trash into power.
 The Linn County Solid Waste Agency displayed its landfill "gas-to-energy" system today.
    The system captures landfill gases and turns them into electricity.
    In the months since the generator began running, reports show that more electricity is being created than originally predicted.
    Officials say the system is an energy investment for the county's future.
    In October alone,  the system generated enough electricity to power more than 1,100 homes in Linn County.
