The City of Yakima cut the ribbon on a new $7 million bioreactor which will treat waste from fruit processors separately from the wastewater from your home.
This is expected to save ten grand a month on power bills.
The city hopes the bioreactor will bring more jobs to the Yakima Valley.
"Yakima is the fruit bowl of America and if we provide these kind of resources for this infrastructure and this is industry, it's only going to get stronger and better and produce more jobs. And that's what Yakima needs," said Yakima City Manager Tony O'Rourke.
A lawsuit forced Yakima to shift fruit waste processing to the main facility a decade ago.
