    The largest landfill in the U.S. is the Apex Regional Landfill north of Las Vegas. It, along with the second largest landfill (Puente Hills in California), use the waste deposited at the sites for electricity conversion. Puente Hills actually appears to be the most efficient: “Perhaps the biggest landfill gas capture is at L.A. County’s Puente Hills, which generates 50 megawatts, enough to power roughly 50,000 homes.” Processed landfill gas is roughly equivalent to natural gas in terms of power, and 520 landfills in the U.S. currently contribute to our natural gas needs.
