The Otto Split Cart is a dual stream cart for automated collection systems, and is separated in two halves by an inner plastic divider, with a separate lid for each stream. Collection trucks are designed with two hoppers, to keep the contents from being contaminated with each other. Cost savings for a municipality or hauler is realized in both collection and processing, as this dual sort system allows for quicker truck cycle times and less sorting at the facility. Hotstamping or in-mould labels instruct the resident what type of refuse or recycla-bles go in each side of the container. Units are available in 64 and 96 gallon sizes, and in various colours.
Otto Environmental Systems North America, Inc.(OESNA) recently announced the launch of its Momentum series of rotationally moulded plastic commercial containers. The new series is part of a manufacturing and sales/distribution agreement between OESNA and Waste & Recycling Plastic Containers, an experienced container manufacturer out of Arizona.
Otto VersaCans come in 20 gallon, 25 gallon and 32 gallon capacities to fit the recycling needs of many communities and offices. The optional lid can be ordered with or without a beverage hole to promote bottle and can recycling, and for outdoor use, drainage holes in the bottom of the container ensure that water won’t collect inside. Units are available in eight different col-ours to coordinate and complement current collection programs. The containers come with a recycling imprint, or can be imprinted with a custom logo.
Otto BearSaver bear-resistant carts are designed for regions that have problems with animals getting into waste and recycling containers. Available in 120-, 260- and 360-litre roll-out carts, units have been extensively tested for durability and have been certified as Grizzly Bear Resistant. Lighter strengths are available for less forceful animals such as black bears, coyotes and raccoons.
