Modern Corporation is a privately owned waste removal company that employs over 500 people here in Western New York and Southern Ontario, Canada. It is the 20th largest waste removal company in the United States.

All electricity and heat for the greenhouse is supplied by Modern’s partnership with Landfill Energy Systems, which converts the energy in gas extracted from Modern Landfill into electricity and heat.
