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”

Proven plastics separator handles packaging waste, WEEE and RDF

Steinert US' UniSort system precisely detects plastics with grain sizes up to 4 mm and recovers material for recycling. This technology efficiently separates individual plastics found in packaging waste, mixed plastics from electronic scrap (WEEE), and low-PVC refuse-derived fuels from residual waste fraction, using high-precision particle detection followed by a burst of compressed air to separate the detected particle. According to Steinert, over 300 UniSort machines have been commissioned over the past 20 years.

The UniSort system utilizes a material’s property of absorbing characteristic wavelengths, which is determined by molecular structure. Hyperspectral imaging technology enables a high-resolution spectrometer to carry out extremely fast material recognition. The unit analyzes the radiation reflected from material to be sorted according to its task, identifying various plastics, wood, paper and textiles, which makes these sorting systems extremely flexible in application.

New Vermeer trommel allows for production of three products

Vermeer has introduced the TR620 trommel screen that allows for an optional third product conveyor, and which will handle the majority of screening needs for compost, mulch, aggregate and topsoil producers, in a compact design for sites with limited space.

“This new trommel screen can fit into a smaller space than our other models, which is a requirement for customers who have a limited amount of space on their site,” said Jeff Bradley, product manager for recycling and forestry at Vermeer. “We listened to contractors who told us they wanted a trommel that could produce three separate products without running the material through the machine twice. That is why we developed the optional third conveyor.”

Provincial Decision a Very Serious Threat to Recycling, According to Metro Vancouver

A decision by BC Environment Minister Mary Polak to reject a Metro Vancouver bylaw aimed at an increases in recycling and proper management of garbage will have catastrophic consequences throughout the province, Metro Vancouver Board Chair Greg Moore said.

“This decision means the commitment of our citizens to recycling and waste avoidance becomes virtually unachievable. The result will be increased costs for residents and businesses, and rather than being recycled, materials will simply be shipped to dumps where they will rot for centuries and create problems for future generations. And the impact on recycling businesses in Metro Vancouver that have invested many millions of dollars, with the expectation significant future investments, will be devastating.

​Recyclers Answer the Call to Take Part in Safety Stand-Down Day

Wednesday, October 15th marks the first-ever recycling industry Safety Stand-Down Day, an effort driven by the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) in response to a series of recent fatalities and serious injuries. Companies were asked by members of the ISRI safety leadership team to shut down operations for at least one hour on every shift to engage in safety awareness training. The training could take any form, from employee training to a management walk-around, or any other effective safety training method.

“Never before has such a call to action been taken at ISRI. It is an ambitious undertaking, but if safety is to be our number one core value, then having every recycler take one hour during each shift to educate employees about safety should not be difficult to ask,” wrote ISRI Chair Doug Kramer in a letter to members this morning. “There have been at least 18 incidents in 2014 involving fatalities, all but two coming in the second half of the year. We must work together to end this disturbing trend, and it begins today.”

New SENTRON LD 8000 by Petro-Canada Lubricants Breaks Performance Barriers for Natural Gas Engine Oil

Petro-Canada Lubricants Inc, the innovators behind the high-performing SENTRON family of natural gas engine oils (NGEO), has launched the latest in the SENTRON line—SENTRON LD 8000. One of the major benefits of SENTRON LD 8000 is that it is so advanced, it provides up to 8,000 hours between drains*. In field testing conducted on a Caterpillar G3500 TALE series natural gas engine operating at a high load (>90%), SENTRON LD 8000 extended oil drain intervals by up to 300% longer than the leading global conventional competitor’s NGEO.

A long-life oil, SENTRON LD 8000 is suitable for use in 4-stroke engines that operate on natural gas, pre-treated sewage/bio-gas and selective pre-treated process gases. A premium low-ash SAE 40 lubricant, SENTRON LD 8000 is built from 99.9% pure base oil—among the purest in the world.
