Creative Microsystems, Inc. has announced at the Canadian Waste & Recycling Expo, its new LoadMan In-Motion Weight Scale for cart tippers that uses state-of-the-art, patent-pending load cell technology. This latest in-motion scale addresses the growing residential waste management market and leverages innovative technology that LoadMan has honed over 25 years in the commercial waste management industry.
“We’re delighted to introduce our LoadMan In-Motion Weight Scale for cart tippers because we see a need for a highly reliable and durable product given the abuse that cart tippers withstand on a daily basis,” said Larry Santi, president of LoadMan. “We understand the challenges that haulers face and believe our new system will not only provide the accuracy that’s required to weigh individual waste carts, but will save time and money through our weigh-in-motion technology.”
ORBIS Corporation, a North American manufacturer of plastic bins and carts for the collection of recyclables and organics, will be at the Canadian Waste & Recycling Expo in Toronto in November to demonstrate for customers, recycling professionals and media the numerous enhancements they’ve made to their popular Kitchen Collector and GreenBin2 organic waste collection containers.
- Green Bin2
The Green Bin2 is ideal for efficient curbside collection of organic waste. The 12-gallon cart is designed for easy storage and collector of food scraps to help municipalities encourage more community residents to divert food waste from landfills.
- Next Generation Kitchen Collector
The contoured Kitchen Collector2 is designed for convenient kitchen scrap collection. The contemporary design fits in any décor, and is a mess-free, odor-free and easy-to-use scrap container that is easily transported from the counter to outdoor compost piles or curbside containers.
ORBIS’ Green Bin2 cart and Kitchen Collector2 represent the first step in helping municipalities encourage more community residents to divert food waste from landfills—an initiative that ORBIS has been successfully introducing into many North American cities, including Toronto, Portland, Ore., and New York City.
Agility Fuel Systems, the leading designer and producer of natural gas fuel storage and delivery systems for heavy duty trucks and buses has announced at the 2014 Natural Gas Vehicle (NGV) Conference and Expo the launch of a new, improved high capacity Behind-the-Cab compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel system.
The updated system now holds 160 DGE (up from 155 DGE) and weighs 500 lbs. less than the previous model. The improvements to the system come from the Agility Hexagon joint venture’s first new product: a new higher capacity and lighter cylinder design. The latest system continues to deliver the most efficient package of any CNG system in the industry and utilizes four of the newly designed cylinders, for a total weight of only 2050 pounds, and requiring only 31 1/4” of valuable frame rail space. Depending on the application, the system can deliver a driving range of 600+ miles before refueling. In addition to its already outstanding capacity as a stand-alone system, it can also be packaged with up to 126 DGE side-mounted systems for a total of 286 DGE and an unprecedented range well in excess of 1,100 miles.

Agility Fuel Systems, the leading designer and producer of natural gas fuel storage and delivery systems for heavy duty trucks and buses recently announced the opening of their Product Support Group Service Center. The new 5,000 square foot office is located within walking distance of Agility’s corporate headquarters in Santa Ana, CA, and will service the over 25,000 Agility natural gas equipped vehicles on the road. These vehicles log over 1.5 billion miles per year, and it is critical for fleets and end users to minimize their service and down-time.
Agility’s Product Support Group Service Center is unique in the industry in providing superior service to our customers. Yoshio Coy, Director of Product Support said, “Our new and improved service center supports both end-users and service providers with technical assistance, warranty authorization and processing, parts distribution and much more.” It is staffed with over 50 dedicated service employees, supports a network of 150 service providers, four parts depots, and provides the following:
A new recycling initiative from Febreze and TerraCycle will see Canadians across the nation trading in used air fresheners and Swiffer packaging for $5,000 in prize money (to be donated to the school or charity of the winner's choice).
It's all part of the new Air and Home Care Brigade, a collection program that aims to divert from landfill all packaging waste associated with home cleaning, enabling consumers to recycle previously non-recyclable material for the first time.
Torxx Kinetic Pulverizer Limited will showcase its Kinetic Pulverizer (KP) at the annual Canadian Waste and Recycling Expo in Mississauga, Ontario on November 19 and 20, 2014 at the International Centre. The KP is a tested and proven high-efficiency technology revolutionizing waste processing for both government and private sector businesses. With the growing need for sustainable waste management practices, the KP provides significant benefits for a wide variety of industries including landfill management; transportation; construction and demolition; recycling; product destruction and waste-to-energy systems.
The KP is a robust, powerful system capable of destroying the most demanding of waste materials. In fractions of a second, large volumes of waste and other materials are deconstructed into a fine homogeneous fluff or shattered into small predefined particle sizes, depending on the feedstock. This innovative self- attrition process allows for greater compaction, extending the life of landfills by up to four times, and providing for more waste to be transported by fewer trucks. Both ferrous and non-ferrous materials are better processed for recycling; wood is more effectively prepared for waste-to-energy applications, and asphalt shingles are more readily repurposed for road surfacing. With the demand for higher throughput/ more efficient recycling technologies, the KP facilitates the process by pulverizing metals, glass, plastics and electronics for more efficient shipping and storage. In waste-to-energy applications, the KP processes waste to optimal particle sizes and maximum surface area;, producing feedstock that delivers more complete combustion, higher heating values, and lower emissions.
JASON Learning and the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) are inviting young filmmakers, artists, automobile enthusiasts, and recycling advocates to participate in a contest that asks young people to build awareness around the different commodities that can be recycled from cars at the end of their lifespan.
The automobile plays an important role in our everyday lives. Many different commodities are needed to make all the parts that go into a car, and almost all of them are recyclable. In the Automobile Recycling Awareness Contest, students in grades 5–12 are challenged to research one or more of the commodities that go into making a car and find out what happens to each commodity through the automobile recycling process and beyond.
More and more Canadians understand the importance of recycling their batteries, as proven by Call2Recycle Canada, Inc., Canada's national consumer battery recycling program.
The organization has announced it reached a milestone, collecting and recycling over 2 million kilograms of batteries across Canada – equal to the weight of six jumbo jets. This significant achievement illustrates that Canadians not only understand the importance of battery recycling, but are taking action. Canadians have recycled more batteries in the first 10 months of this year than in all of 2013.
Republic Services, Inc. announced November 6th that its subsidiary Republic Silver State Disposal, Inc. has started construction on a new recycling facility.
