Deadline to submit nominations for the Saskatchewan Waste Minimization Awards is February 20th.
The Saskatchewan Waste Reduction Council is seeking nominations for the Saskatchewan Waste Minimization Awards for 2014. If you know of an individual, business, municipality or community organization who should be recognized for their waste minimization efforts, please go to our website page HERE and submit a nomination. Help us celebrate the good things happening in Saskatchewan!
The awards ceremony will be held in conjunction with the Saskatchewan Waste Reduction Council's 2015 Waste ReForum conference occurring April 22 to 24 in Saskatoon.
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.
