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”

Secondary Materials and Recycled Textiles Association Member Sets the Standard for Sorting Recycled Clothing

Textile Recycler, a member of the Secondary Materials and Recycled Textiles Association (SMART), the international trade association of the for-profit used clothing reuse and recycling industry, diverts more than half a million pounds of clothing and 10,000 pounds of shoes each week from landfills with the use of automated sorting systems.

According to Jackie King, executive director for SMART, for more than 400 years, the used clothing and textile recycling industry has relied heavily on manual sorting and grading processes and has seen little to no technological advances since its inception.

In 2014, Textile Recycler installed an automated shoe sorting system and is the only textile recycling company in the world to use one.

Recycling Industry Stands-Down for Safety

As part of the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) Safety Stand-Down Day, recyclers across the country will demonstrate their commitment to safety as a core value. Companies will shut down operations for at least one hour on every shift to engage in safety awareness training. The training can take any form, from employee training to a management walk-around, or any other effective safety training method.

“Last year we created an industry-wide Safety Stand-Down Day to address growing concern over workplace fatalities and injuries,” said Robin Wiener, president of ISRI. “Since that time last October, we have made great strides, but every time a worker does not come home to his or her family it is one time too many. That is why this year we focused on the theme, ‘Be Safe to Be There.’ We want every worker to be safe so they are there for family holidays, birthdays, fishing trips, graduations, just relaxing in front of the television, or any other activity. By focusing on safety as a core value, we encourage safe practices in the workplace.”
