Baltimore RESCO Solid waste plant is located in Baltimore, Maryland. It is one of the biggest solid waste plant in United States. In this plant wastes are burned to energy supply.

There are 16 plants like this one in the U.S.   This plant was opened in the fall of 1984 and services the needs of the city of Baltimore, Baltimore County, and the surrounding county of Anne Arundel. It has processed more than 9 million tons of waste so far, and can provide electricity for as many as 40,000 homes.  The steam from the plant satisfies the heating needs of the city of Baltimore and a large portion of its cooling needs.
