Integrated enclosure system for containers

Introduced at Waste Expo 2013, Dumpster Mate is a new integrated enclosure system specifically designed for the waste and recycling industry. This product is a patent pending modular system constructed out of durable, environmentally friendly, 100-percent recyclable polyethylene (plastic) which makes it easy to maintain. Units surround most six- and eight-yard tall steel and plastic dumpsters and enable quick, hassle-free and efficient solid waste pick-up through wide, “saloon door” style entry.

Dumpster Mate will not rust or fade and is resistant to UV rays, saltwater and other harsh airborne chemicals. This product also never needs to be refurbished or repainted, comes in five standard or custom colours, is portable and is easily assembled in just a few hours.

 Dumpster Mate says their product was designed to help waste haulers improve productivity, increase revenues and decrease operating expenses, and that units will save waste companies three minutes per stop when compared to traditional gated enclosures (on average). Plus, given its wide door design, drivers don’t have to exit a truck to complete a stop which greatly reduces potential for injury and compensation claims, thus reducing operating expenses.

  “We are proud to introduce an innovative product like Dumpster Mate to the waste industry, which can truly impact productivity and reduce costs,” said Steve Goode, Dumpster Mate President and CEO. “Dumpster Mate is truly a game changer, providing bottom-line benefits to waste companies”

The Carton Recycling Misconception

Contrary to the perception of many, cartons used for packaging of foods are recyclable. The paper fibre contained in cartons – which are mainly made from growing forests where trees are replaced by new ones and biodiversity is maintained – is valuable and useful to make a range of goods, including tissue and towelling products, de-inked pulp, as well as building products such as wallboard, sheathing, ceiling tiles and roofing sheet.

The reality is that cartons are a high value material that is recyclable, and cartons represent some of the best fibre that remains readily available in the waste stream.

Advance Disposal Opens Upgraded 50-tph MRF

 At the end of May, Advance Disposal Company, Inc., a privately owned hauler and MRF operator in Southern California, held a grand opening ceremony to mark the reopening of their newly upgraded municipal solid waste MRF.

CP Group worked with Advance Disposal to redesign and retrofit their 21-yearold MRF sorting system, which previously handled 20 tph, so that it is now capable of processing 50 tph. The MRF is also now operating on one extended shift instead of two, due to its increased throughput.

RM V550GO! Unites Several Crushing Processes in One Machine; MTS2010 Tracked Mobile Stockpiler Replaces a Wheel Loader

Rubble Master’s RM V550GO! (shown here at a recent Demo Days in Austria) brings together the technology of a cone crusher and vertical shaft impactor (VSI) with the benefits of the company’s RM GO! technology. This fully mobile plant produces sand from waste material or post-crush processes reject gravel, or hard stone to make recycled aggregate. It is also a very good machine for processing waste aggregate (reject of 8 to 16 mm).

“This crusher is a revolution. It unites two machines in one. Now you only have to invest in one machine instead of what was previously two or three,” says Rubble Master (RM) sales partner Jean-Yves Voghel from Quebec, Canada.

Waste Handlers 101

For purpose-built wheel loaders, commonly referred to in waste and recycling as “waste handlers”, transfer stations and other materials processing facilities are among the most extreme environments that could possibly be encountered. Waste handlers can be outfitted with a number of features and performanceenhancers suited specifically for work in transfer station, landfill, composting and recycling applications, and are compatible with an extensive range of attachments from forks and grapples to buckets with rubber cutting edges. The right machine for each application will depend greatly on the available operating space, the type of material being handled and the operational demands put on the machine. Following are key factors to consider when evaluating waste handlers for waste/recycle applications.

Polymide Compounds Enable Processors to Meet “Green” Requirements

European plastics processors now have access to recycled polyamide compounds that come with the quality assurance of Teknor Apex Company, one of the world’s leading custom compounders and a specialist in polyamide formulations. Previously sold only in the U.S., the Recyclon family of recycled polyamide compounds are now available in Europe, supported by Teknor Apex’s backward integration into the recycling process, which includes a consistent supply of high-quality feedstocks.

The Recyclon range of compounds includes polyamide 6 and 66 engineering thermoplastics for injection moulding. Incorporating glass fibre reinforcement and performance enhancing additives, the compounds are designed to provide superior part performance in demanding end-use environments. Teknor Apex can vary the percentage loadings of recycled polymer to meet customer requirements, and compounds are supplied in black.

Metal Detectors Prevent Damage

Austrian company Starlinger GmbH is a global market leader in the field of machinery and process technology for the recycling and production of woven plastic sacks. Since 1987 the company has manufactured and supplied recycling lines for plastics, and in 2002 established a recycling technology division. This division includes innovative machine solutions for the efficient recycling of a wide range of plastics, including PE, PP, PA, PS, PET and others. Starlinger says they employ a range of recycling technologies and well proven and established machinery, a key component of which is their metal detection supplied by S+S Separation and Sorting Technology GmbH.

At the start of the recycling process, in the plastic shredding stage, reliable metal detection is indispensable since metal contamination can cause damage to downstream components. Starlinger says consistent metal separation prior to shredding reduces malfunctions and increases the profitability of recycling lines. For this purpose, the company uses S+S DLS type detectors, mounted over their conveyor system, upstream of the shredder.

Refrigeration Industry Leaders Organize Global Refrigerant Management Initiative

Three of the world's leading refrigeration associations - The Alliance for Responsible Atmospheric Policy, the Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI), and the Brazilian Association for HVAC-R (ABRAVA), recently announced the formation of the Global Refrigerant Management Initiative at the United Nations Secretary-General's Climate Summit.

The leakage of refrigerant during the servicing of equipment is the largest source of hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) emissions around the globe. This Initiative will work to identify opportunities to educate the industry's global supply chain on ways to improve the management of refrigerants and to reduce leaks and service emissions, particularly where current leak rates are the greatest. In addition, the initiative will promote the recycling, recovery, reclaiming and end of life destruction of refrigerants and develop policies to promote proper refrigerant management.
