Jeff Barber, yard waste and landfill manager for the Rapid City Solid Waste Division, with their recently acquired 6800BT horizontal grinder.

Jeff Barber has worked at the Rapid City Solid Waste Division, in South Dakota, for 18 years and currently manages their yard waste and landfill operations.

The Value of image-based Sensors

Compology’s web-based software simplifies inventory management.

There's a shift happening in the way we, as individuals and collectively, think about minimizing our impact on our environment. Financial, political and environmental pressures are putting an increasing emphasis on consumers, businesses and governments to be more efficient, produce less waste and handle the waste we do generate more effectively. We see this across all industries, through increasing commitments to sustainable practices, and across all levels of government, through increasing numbers of environmentally-focused programs and mandates.

A curbside conversation

IPL’s Mastercart series uses 100 percent recyclable, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) to yield design precision and consistent thicknesses.

While curbside collection carts may appear uncomplicated by nature, they have evolved significantly over the last decade. This is in large part due to the rise of automated systems and the rapid expansion of curbside collection programs around Canada and the U.S. It also has to do with the evolving range of materials collected at the curb, including organics. Curbside collection carts (aka rollout carts) have become easier to handle for residential users, more lightweight yet more durable, as well as more visually appealing and better at keeping out vectors. Sophisticated RFID (radio-frequency identification) and tracking technologies incorporated into carts can also now help cities, waste management companies and haulers manage their carts and their customers. All of this has changed the way the collection industry operates and the way carts for the collection of waste, recyclables and organics are designed.

Material recovery facilities (MRFs) are seeing many challenges that directly impact operations. Some of these challenges include: new recycled material quality standards from China, the ratcheting up of voluntary and mandatory local and state recycling goals, lower tolerance for worker injury, increasing volumes and a changing waste stream, disposal bans on organics in landfills, and high demand from emerging energy markets for organics.
