12-gallon green bin for curbside source-separated organics collection

12-gallon green bin for curbside  source-separated organics collection

Orbis’ new Green Bin2 has been introduced in response to rising demand for a smaller, more appropriately sized container to collect source-separated organics in residential and commercial applications. The 12-gallon cart is designed for easy storage and collection of food scraps, to help municipalities encourage community residents to divert more food waste from landfills.  

According to Orbis, The Green Bin2’s 360-degree double rim closure and secure front latch not only eliminate spills and trap odours, but combined with the lid lock, will minimize animal entry. The Green Bin2 is made from durable, BPA-free and recycled high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and is fully recyclable. Units include an optional telescopic handle; available, optional reflectors; side holds to keep organic collection bags in place; recessed casters for easy transport to and from the curb; and available hot stamping.

Why invest money in an intelligent MRF (4.0)?

Traditionally, waste management companies have operated using a simple "management of waste" approach to operating a MRF. Throughput targets and continuous operation (minimal downtime) were the main driving forces. The industry has changed however, and the focus moving forward is now on optimizing system performance and reliability, in conjunction with increasing recycling rates and a drive for a "greener" and more sustainable tomorrow.

When considering the addition of, or upgrade to, an "intelligent" MRF, for municipalities or private operators, the main factors should always be the client's (operator) current requirements, and evolving market needs, which include throughput, reliability, output quality, and adaptability. Equally important is a full understanding of what is really expected from any proposed system. Having an engaged and focused mindset for the project with the client from the beginning, will impact and drive the entire design process. This then impacts the overall project result, through to the productive, efficient, ongoing operation of the facility itself.
