Experience in paper sorting

It's harder than ever to get clean paper. But we've been successfully sorting paper on the front end with optical sorters since 2005. Why have we been so successful? Because we know it's not JUST about the optical. We focus on your entire operation, so you make the most of your fiber line. Is your optical sorter living up to its potential?

Is new plastic tax a danger to the EU common market and recovery?

With its latest agreement on the new Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) and coronavirus recovery fund, the European Council has approved the implementation of a plastic tax as of the 1st of January, 2021. The plan foresees a €0.80/kg levy on non-recycled plastic packaging waste to be paid by member states into the EU budget.

How barrier-coated paperboard is providing an alternative to plastic

Although people are working to find renewable alternatives to plastic, there is still no material with all of plastic's advantages without its devastating impact on the environment.

Waste Connections invests in Lion8 zero-emission electric truck chassis capable of servicing 1,200 homes on a single charge

The Lion Electric Co. and Boivin Evolution have sold the first Lion8 chassis with fully automated side load bodies to Waste Connections. The initial vehicles, to be operating in Washington and Florida, represent the first applications of zero-emission trucks with fully electric waste collection bodies and automated arms in North America.

Insight from an expert: Hooklifts vs Cable Hoists for waste and recycling

According to Tim Worman, product manager for demountables at Stellar Industries, when it comes to loading containers or truck bodies onto a truck chassis, the North American waste and recycling market has traditionally favoured the cable hoist, while the hooklift has been more prominent internationally, where urban space is generally tighter. Canada has been somewhere in between, based on influence from both markets.
