  • Leachate Collection Pipe Construction
    • Authors: Ai Khatami
      Abstract: MSW Management Weekly
      Permitting lateral and/or vertical expansions is the way for the landfill operators to remain in business, and that has resulted in permitted landfills becoming larger and taller. There are currently permitted landfills in the state of Florida or in other states with a maximum waste thickness exceeding 300 feet. Landfills with over 300-foot thicknesses may be rare, but there are many landfills with waste thicknesses over 200 feet in Florida. These landfills can apply significant compressive stresses on the leachate collection pipes placed below waste at the bottom of the landfill. Leachate collection pipes are considered the backbone for proper management of leachate in landfills. Without leachate collection pipes, leachate heads can quickly exceed the allowable maximum leachate head of 1.0 feet above the liner, and the agency would have to take action at that stage, possibly shutting down the landfill if leachate collection pipes are compromised to the point of not allowing flow through them.

      I received a message in my inbox this past Friday reminding me that it was Bill Rathje’s birthday, a missive that stirred many memories. That the renowned archaeology professor in whose honor the term “Garbologist” came into being has been dead for four years is of no consequence in the estimation of Mark Zuckerberg’s electronic The post Facebook Confirms There’s Life After Death appeared first on Forester Network.

           Buildings: A Comparative Analysis – Part 1
    • Authors: Jeremy O'Brien
      Abstract: MSW Management Weekly
      MSW Management Weekly
      Editor’s note: This article first appeared in the February 2014 edition of MSW Management Magazine. Interest in the recycling of the organic fraction of the municipal solid waste (MSW) stream is at an all-time high. As a result, municipal solid waste managers are facing a watershed moment as they are now being tasked with the implementation The post Source-Separation and Mixed Waste Recycling Systems for Multifamily Buildings: A Comparative Analysis – Part 1 appeared first on Forester Network.

  • The Elements of Waste Transfer Operations
    • Authors: Daniel P. Duffy
      Abstract: MSW Management Weekly
      Transfer trailers exist because of transfer stations. Transfer trailer trucks financially justify the building and operating of transfer stations, since their larger capacities achieve the necessary economies of scale that minimize the overall costs of over land bulk transport. Common sense and accounting show that it is less expensive to transport large quantities of waste long distance in fewer large trucks than smaller quantities of waste in smaller trucks (like the waste collection trucks used to pick up trash from a street corner). The cost advantage of fewer, larger trucks extends from lowered fuel and labor costs, to lower overhead with less maintenance and fleet upkeep.

  • Does Glass Recycling Still Make Sense?
    • Authors: Marc J. Rogoff; Bruce J. Clark
      Abstract: MSW Management Weekly
      Recyclers typically do not want glass for several reasons. First, the market for recycled glass is poor to non-existent in most parts of the country. Second, glass breakage and cross contamination at material recovery facilities leads to increased processing costs and increased contamination of other recyclable materials, thus lowering the value of these commodities. While many communities are continuing to instruct their residents to place glass bottles and jars in single-stream carts, some communities have opted to discontinue glass collection in their recycling programs. Currently, it costs from $10 to $40 a ton across the country to send collected glass materials to cullet processors. Given that glass accounts for almost 5% of the municipal solid wastestream and that state and local agencies have set ambitious zero waste goals, many agencies are not yet ready to give up on glass recycling and have developed other models.

      This year marks the 20th anniversary of SWANA’s Senior Executive Seminar (SES), this renewal hosted by the Association’s Arizona Chapter. Over the years, SES has not so much evolved as donned attire to meet the ever-changing complexion of SWANA’s membership and the field it serves, but from its beginnings it has been among my favorite events The post Phoenix Outlines Its 40X20 Fight at SES 2016 appeared first on Forester Network.
