Retired, Los Angeles County Sanitation District

Joe Edberg was inducted into the Landfill Gas Management Division Hall of Flame in 1997.

During his tenure at the Los Angeles County Sanitation District (circa 1973), Joe set up generators fueled by LFG to light the Christmas tree on top of Palos Verdes landfill during the 1973 energy crisis. Joe brought national attention to the possible use of LFG as a beneficial fuel.

Joe passed away on August 14, 2014.
