Pitbull 2300B Screener new option for small- to mid-sized contractors

Lake Erie Portable Screeners introduces a portable box screener as a smaller, economical alternative to the Pitbull 2300. The Pitbull 2300B has no conveyors and features a smaller frame, allowing it to boast the durability, portability and screening rate of the 2300 at almost half the cost. The new model is simpler, lighter and more compact than the larger version, yet delivers high outputs with a wide range of materials, including topsoil, mulch, gravel, stone and asphalt. The combination of low price and high performance makes the machine ideal for rental centers and small- to mid-sized contractors in industries such as landscaping, construction and excavation.

Beast horizontal grinders key for Bunyon Bros. growth in wood waste recycling

Bunyon Bros. Tree Service handles everything from removals to land clearing, stump grinding, pruning, disease treatment, firewood, crane service and more. Among his fleet of machines are five Bandit hand-fed chippers and a Bandit Beast, model 3680 tracked grinder.

Ron Rinell is the owner of Bunyon Bros. Tree Service, headquartered in San Luis Obispo, serving the entire San Luis Obispo County. Tucked neatly between Los Angeles and San Francisco on California's  picturesque Central Coast, San Luis Obispo (or SLO to the locals) has something of a reputation for being the happiest town in America. Back in 1990 this was the first city in the world to ban smoking in public buildings. The downtown area is structured to promote pedestrian and bicycle traffic; a nod to the numerous biking and hiking trails in the area. All drive-thru restaurants are banned in the city, and in 2010 the smoking ban was extended to all public outdoor areas as well. Outside the city limits, there’s the Pacific Ocean to the west, mountains to the east, and vineyards all around. The local population of 44,000 love it, and the floods of tourists who visit each year seem to love it as well.

The figures for oils and fats are similar.

Organic residuals continue to deliver gains in waste diversion, GHG reductions, job creation and environmental benefits

Organics recycling has long left its pioneering days, with the risky early times being nurtured by a roster of individual entrepreneurs, both in the private as well as public sector, who saw the potential, understood the rightness and stepped up to make good change happen. Today, the #1 material being recycled across Canada, organic residuals, are delivering local gains in waste diversion, greenhouse gas reductions, skilled job creation and all the fertility and environmental benefits associated with returning compost back to the soil. The multiplier effect through the amassing of these many individual local initiatives are creating solid gains for both provincial and national success stories. An industry has been created, still junior but with “good bones”, ready for exponential growth with heightened emphasis and greater financial support.

​Canadian Nuclear Laboratories employs new shredder to convert scrap wood into bulk material for landfill cover​

The Uracco 75 DK mobile shredder uses an all-terrain track system, onsite for Canadian Nuclear Laboratories at the company's landfill, where it reduces the volume of building materials from decommissioning, renovation and new building work.

At the beginning of 2016, Chalk River Laboratories (CRL), Ontario/Canada, which is part of Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL), put into operation a Lindner Urraco 75 DK mobile shredder. The machine was supplied by Waterloo, Ontario-based Recycling Equipment Canada, Lindner America's authorized Canadian dealer. On site at the company's landfill for non-contaminated waste, which is operated by the CNL's Decommissioning & Waste Management division, the shredder is in permanent use crushing wood, plastics and light materials from demolition, renovation and new building work. On the 40 km² site with around 160 buildings, this debris occurs primarily in the form of pallets, construction timber, trees and brush, asphalt, metal containers, plastic pipes and furniture. Apart from significantly reducing the volume of the waste, the Urraco also assumes the task of preparing the wood fraction into an easily compactible bulk product that can be mixed with regular daily cover material and spread over the working face of the landfill at the end of every working day. In this way, the company complies with the regulation to cover the waste collected during the course of a day with a 150 mm thick layer of wood and soil mixture, thus mitigating the need to bring in earth especially for this purpose.
