For the fourth year in a row, LBX Company, based out of Lexington, Kentucky, has pledged its support to the American Hearth Association's (AHA) Life is Why We Give campaign, by giving $500 to the organization for every Link-Belt excavator, forestry machine or material handler retailed in February in North America.

LBX is a national program supporter for this campaign and the company is challenging their North American dealers to support their local AHA chapters.

According to LBX, during February, many Link-Belt excavator dealers have committed to again participate in a special campaign that encourages both employees and customers to get involved locally with the American Heart Association through charitable donations or volunteering time. 

The company says that local AHA chapter's are there to help get started with ideas for increasing engagement and establishing volunteer programs that will have a positive impact on communities throughout the year.

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.
