  • The Plastic Bottle Horror
    • Authors: Arturo Santiago
      Abstract: MSW Management Weekly
      MSW Management WeeklyOver the holiday I took time to watch a couple of horror flicks. One of them had an ending which left me with a sheer sense of dread. Probably because I bought into the premise of the movie even though it most likely will never happen.The thing is, I now have a very similar senseThe post The Plastic Bottle Horror 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.

  • Space Waste Detectives
    • Authors: Arturo Santiago
      Abstract: MSW Management Weekly
      MSW Management WeeklyI love Star Trek. That includes the original series, Next Generation, and Voyager. Deep Space Nine not so much. I love Star Wars. I won’t list them all here. I binge-watched the entire Battlestar Galactica series reboot a few weeks ago. From my backyard, I can see rocket launches from Vandenberg Air Force Base.

  • Material Sorting Systems
    • Authors: Carol Brzozowski
      Abstract: MSW Management Weekly
      Municipal solid waste (MSW) operations face three primary goals in sorting material: the ability to do so in a manner that most efficiently saves time and money, the potential for generating the optimal post-sort revenue, and having a process that ensures safety.The post Material Sorting Systems appeared first on Forester Network.

  • Recycling Household Hazardous Waste
    • Authors: Ryan Tilley
      Abstract: MSW Management Weekly
      Local efforts for recycling picked up steam when St. Charles County, MO, committed to an expansion of Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection from residents. A suburb within the St. Louis Metropolitan Area, St. Charles County is Missouri's third-largest county in population with more than 380,000 residents, and is the state's fastest-growing county with a projected population of nearly 500,000 by 2030. The median household income is approximately $72,000 per year and covers more than 500 square miles. It is bordered by the Missouri and ­Mississippi rivers.The post Recycling Household Hazardous Waste appeared first on Forester Network.

  • Apples and Oranges Food Waste
    • Authors: Arturo Santiago
      Abstract: MSW Management Weekly
      MSW Management WeeklyHere are a couple of clichés. “Measure twice, cut once.” “Don’t compare apples and oranges.” Both are appropriate in my mind when quantifying food waste. When talking about how much food is wasted, it makes sense to use the same metric and/or definition of food waste. Can a single organization simply declare that one quarterThe post Apples and Oranges Food Waste appeared first on Forester Network.

  • Landfill Odor Control
    • Authors: Carol Brzozowski
      Abstract: MSW Management Weekly
      While perhaps the increased emphasis on separate collections of organic wastes such as food scraps and other green waste has contributed to more odors, the development of neighborhoods closer to what was once a remote MSW operation is the overriding factor, say industry observers. Marc L. Byers, owner of Byers Scientific & Manufacturing, notes that odor is an ongoing challenge for landfills and compost operations, but not because of biological changes.The post Landfill Odor Control appeared first on Forester Network.

      Abstract: MSW Management Weekly
      MSW Management WeeklyI’ve been telling you about the idea of running fleet vehicles on electric power; specifically collection trucks.

  • 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.
