  • Collection of Organic Wastes From High-Rise Buildings and Apartment
           Complexes
    • Authors: Jeremy O'Brien
      Abstract: MSW Management Weekly
      This article provides highlights from a research memorandum recently published by the SWANA Applied Research Foundation (ARF) on the collection of organic wastes from high-rise buildings and apartment complexes. This research need was identified by North Vancouver, British Columbia, and selected for investigation during FY2012 (July 2011 through June 2012). The research memorandum presents the results of background research conducted with input and support provided by t...The post Collection of Organic Wastes From High-Rise Buildings and Apartment Complexes appeared first on Forester Network.

  • Let’s Talk About This
    • Authors: Arturo Santiago
      Abstract: MSW Management Weekly
      MSW Management Weekly
      Waste Management recently held its annual Executive Sustainability Forum. One of the conversations that caught my attention was between former Republican White House Press Secretary Dana Perino and Democratic Party strategist, Julie Roginsky. That’s right. Political rivals sat down face to face, post-election. Given the divisive political climate we now live in, tornados didn’t startThe post Let’s Talk About This appeared first on Forester Network.

      As much as I enjoy going out and being active on the weekends, I’m planning to be (mostly) on the couch for Super Bowl LI. Yes, the game itself is only a few hours long, and there are the pre-game and post-game festivities to enjoy. That doesn’t take up the entire weekend, but there’s alsoThe post It’s More Than Just a Game 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.The post The Elements of Waste Transfer Operations appeared first on Forester Network.

  • The Landfill Manager’s Guide to the Airspace Balance Equation
    • Authors: Neal Bolton
      Abstract: MSW Management Weekly
      For the savvy landfill manager, settlement is like money in the bank...only better.
      Here is a real-life example: A municipal landfill—one of our long-time clients—had listed a new liner in next year's budget. The amount? Three million dollars. So, what's the deal? Does the typical landfill have massive airspace resources just sitting around, while the management team is focused on new liner projects? In our experience, many do ... too many.The post The Landfill Manager’s Guide to the Airspace Balance Equation appeared first on Forester Network.

      MSW Management Weekly
      The city of Austin, Texas, has had a goal of becoming a zero-waste city by the year 2040. That meant meeting a number of important benchmarks over the last few years. The city set a goal of sending only 10% of its waste to landfills, but the current level seems to have hit a steadyThe post Austin City Soul Searching appeared first on Forester Network.

  • The Costs and Benefits of Anaerobic Digesters
    • Authors: Daniel P. Duffy
      Abstract: MSW Management Weekly
      Anaerobic digesters are a mature, proven technology. They take sludge, manure, and other organic waste materials and produce methane (natural gas) fuel. Nobody questions their technological capabilities. However, the question remains as to their economic benefits. In terms of dollars and cents, how much economic sense do anaerobic digesters make? What are the economic benefits of an anaerobic digester fuel system? Under what scenarios do they make sense, and under what scenarios are they of only marginal benefit—or should not be considered at all? As a source of renewable energy, how is this energy applied? Can anaerobic digesters be used economically to provide grid-ready electrical power, or should they only be used to provide fuel for local, niche applications?The post The Costs and Benefits of Anaerobic Digesters appeared first on Forester Network.

      Abstract: MSW Management Weekly
      MSW Management Weekly
      There may be no other state as dedicated to air quality as the state of California. Last year, Governor Jerry Brown signed legislation that requires a 40% reduction in methane levels by the year 2030. The state is also trying to reduce greenhouse gas to 1990 levels by 2020.These ambitions took a bit of hitThe post The Air Up There appeared first on Forester Network.

  • How to Spec a Trash Truck for Longer Life and Productivity
    • Authors: Lori Lovely
      Abstract: MSW Management Weekly
      The cost and the complexity of collection trucks continue to increase. With deteriorating road conditions and higher pressure for performance, budget is no longer the only significant factor in a hauler's purchase decision. Meeting the demands of an industry known for operating in the most severe conditions, a truck must also improve the efficiency and productivity of the operator, all while providing sufficient return on investment (ROI) to entice a hauler to purchase it.The post How to Spec a Trash Truck for Longer Life and Productivity appeared first on Forester Network.
