Trash from Washington and Ramsey County homes and businesses is delivered to the Recycling & Energy Center (R&E Center) in Newport which processes it into a fuel for Xcel Energy’s Red Wing and Mankato power plants. The R&E Center is owned by Washington and Ramsey counties and processes over 1,000 tons of trash each day, enough to cover a football field six feet high.
