Roll-Off Systems turns to Continental tires for both new and retread applications

Mike Corkran, fleet maintenance manager for Roll Off Systems, needed a tough tire for servicing urban trash routes with front-loaders, and construction sites and inert landfills with roll-offs.
Mike Corkran, fleet maintenance manager for Roll Off Systems, needed a tough tire for servicing urban trash routes with front-loaders, and construction sites and inert landfills with roll-offs.

Mike Corkran, fleet maintenance manager for Roll Off Systems, a waste transportation company in Statham, Georgia, needed a tough tire to withstand his company's demanding  application. Servicing urban trash routes with front-loaders, and construction sites and inert landfills with roll-offs, he couldn't compromise on tire and casing durability.

"On our roll-offs, we've pulled spark plugs out of tires, bolts, rebar... all kinds of things," said Corkran. 

Since taking the fleet maintenance manager position in 2014, Corkran has always purchased new  tires from Continental Tire for the steer position.

"All we buy is Continental," he says. "We've been using Continental's CityService HA3 for four or five years on our steer tires. It's great for our vocation, as far as waste and hauling trailers and everything we do."

Recently, Corkran took advantage of a newly available ContiTread retread offering to move his fleet to purchasing only Continental tires for both new and retread applications.

"Until recently, we were retreading with a competitor because we wanted the 32/32nd deep lug," he explained. "Within the last few months, [since the CityService HD3 retread became available in 32/32nd], we've moved to all Continental for the retread as well. I've got 30 tires back there with the new tread on them already. The new retread - that's a pretty sexy looking tire!"

Conti CityService tires, available new and as retreads, are designed for urban waste transport with advanced engineering to deliver durability in high scrub applications.

Mike prefers Conti CityService tires because they are durable, he can retread them multiple times, and they are easy to repair. "The quality of the tire is excellent, both new and for retreadability. We don't have sidewalls blown out, we don't have tire failures. We typically get two retreads on a casing," he pointed out. "What impresses me the most is the service we get out of them, their durability, and that they're easy to repair. We patch everything, we don't plug, so our tires have got to be easy to buff and put a patch on." 

Mike outfits his fleet with new CityService HA3 tires on the steer position. Then, he retreads them with ContiTread™ CityService HD3 retread for the drive position. "The CityService HD3 retread is better for off-road, the drivers can get into some soupier stuff and still get out," he said. "It's more of an aggressive tire." On the third retread, they get a ContiTread™ trailer pattern.

When asked what sets Continental tires apart from the competition, Mike responded, "The support that Continental gives, by far. When my sales person says he's going to do something, he does it." 

He is also impressed with how durable the CityService line-up is. "It's just a tough tire! It gets the job done. It gets the trash off the ground and into the landfill," he noted. "Once, a tire came in with 32 nails in it, but as a Continental it was still holding air; I'll never forget that."

Waste transport fleet Roll Off Systems was looking for a tough tire to withstand servicing urban trash routes, construction sites and inert landfills with front-load and roll-off vehicles. After testing the Conti CityService portfolio, the fleet now purchases nothing else.

GTI quantifies opportunity to produce low-carbon Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) from wood wastes

The engineering design study, funded by West Coast utilities and a state government agency, was conducted to better understand the value, benefits, and cost of utilizing wood wastes to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Today, GTI has released a site-specific engineering design titled Low-Carbon Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) from Wood Wastes. GTI led a team of engineers and scientists to produce a "blueprint" for converting an existing biomass facility into an RNG production site, using the wood waste feedstock and some of the existing infrastructure. A biomass power plant in Stockton, California, was the host site for the engineering design effort. In addition to providing data about the process technologies, the integrated plant, and production costs, the study highlights the many environmental benefits and the low-carbon fuel produced.

LEED changes a boost for C&D

LEED changes a boost for C&D

Construction and demolition (C&D) materials are hefty. It is why we can so effectively build roads, bridges and buildings out of them. It's also why, by weight, they are the most significant material in the North American waste stream. This creates a challenge for recycling, as it's usually too expensive, in terms of ROI, to ship most recovered C&D end products, including wood, concrete, drywall, asphalt, and asphalt shingles.

Using recycled aggregates for roadbuilding is the way of the future – time for many to catch up

Recycling concrete and asphalt from roadways keeps the material out of landfills and is a green alternative to using virgin aggregates for new roads.

Municipalities are responsible for the care and maintenance of vast amounts of roadway, from alleys to highways. When those roads are repaired or replaced, there's the potential to generate a significant amount of aggregate material - concrete and asphalt removed from the old surface that must be dealt with.
