      Every four years, the American Society of Civil Engineers’ Report Card for America’s Infrastructure depicts the condition and performance of American infrastructure in the familiar form of a school report card—assigning letter grades based on the physical condition and needed investments for improvement.
      This year’s overall grade is a D+.The post VIDEO: 2017 Infrastructure Report Card appeared first on Forester Network.

  • Transforming Landfills Into Resources
    • Authors: David C. Richardson
      Abstract: MSW Management Weekly
      MSW Management Weekly
      A landfill can be like a baby: It is helpless to care for itself; while it’s growing, it eats all day; at night when resting, it must be protected from the elements; and it belches constantly. If you’re lucky, it won’t stir up much fuss. If you’re not lucky, the neighbors can become quite annoyed.Landfills canThe post Transforming Landfills Into Resources appeared first on Forester Network.

  • Using Drones for Landfill Mapping
    • Authors: Neal Bolton
      Abstract: MSW Management Weekly
      65% of landfills develop an annual topographic map, and most of those topo maps are created using traditional aerial photogrammetry. This is a process that two years ago we would have called "state of the art." Today, we call it "old-fashioned," because we can now produce those same maps using what are technically known as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, otherwise known as drones.The post Using Drones for Landfill Mapping appeared first on Forester Network.

  • Less Than Six Degrees of Separation

      Abstract: MSW Management Weekly
      MSW Management Weekly
      I’m in Las Vegas this week covering CONEXPO-CON/AGG for our sister publication, Grading & Excavation Contractor magazine. Much of what is being talked about here is infrastructure. Infrastructure relates to all of Forester Media’s publications, including MSW Management. It’s hard to write an MSW Management blog without turning to the subject of the nation’s infrastructure,The post Less Than Six Degrees of Separation appeared first on Forester Network.

      It’s pretty impressive when you scan the recycling efforts across the country. Dart Container Corp. has recently opened three new drop-off locations for expanded polystyrene products in Oklahoma, Illinois, and Idaho. That makes more than 40 that Dart has opened among the hundreds of others across the country.

  • Magnets, Electromagnets, and Eddy Current Separators
    • Authors: Daniel P. Duffy
      Abstract: MSW Management Weekly
      Recycling is not an easy thing to do, and its difficulties increase with scale. For large communities and cities, industrial scale recycling operations are required. This further requires the adoption of industrial methods utilizing specialized machinery that can extract specific materials from the wastestream with sufficient capacity to manage incoming waste loads. Technically, the process of recycling MSW presents a series of challenges and problems. The first is the nature of the ...The post Magnets, Electromagnets, and Eddy Current Separators appeared first on Forester Network.

  • Collection Software for Vehicle Tracking, Maintenance, and Management
    • Authors: Daniel P. Duffy
      Abstract: MSW Management Weekly
      There's an old saying in the solid waste industry that a waste management company does not make money by picking waste up, so much as it does by putting it back down again. That is to say, the labor-intensive act of collecting waste is not as profitable as capital-intensive disposal operations. This, of course, is an over simplification, and no solid waste operation can make any profit at all at a landfill until the waste is delivered in the first place. But a waste hauler needs to take advantage of any productivity tool that is available, because only thorough improved efficiency and production can this part of the operation stay profitable and competitive.The post Collection Software for Vehicle Tracking, Maintenance, and Management appeared first on Forester Network.

      We’ve been having discussions in the editorial offices of Forester Media in regards to strategies on how to cover the new White House Administration. One recent event was the confirmation of Scott Pruitt as the head of the Environmental Protection Agency. Of course, any changes that take place at EPA can have an effect onThe post What Is in Store for EPA? appeared first on Forester Network.
