      Earlier this summer I was among the thousands to attend Waste Expo in Las Vegas. Some of the more exciting moments come when a few of the exhibitors have a celebrity at their booth with which to shake hands and exchange a few pleasantries. One of my favorite shows is Deadliest Catch on the Discovery The post Deadliest Catch Caught appeared first on Forester Network.

      Abstract: MSW Management Weekly
      MSW Management Weekly
      The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) points out on its website that while recycling is good for the environment, it can be dangerous for workers. Certain materials in the wastestream directly pose hazards to workers. Additional hazards include vehicle traffic, moving machine parts, unexpected machine startup, lifting injuries, slips, trips, and falls. There have been The post Maximizing Efficiency and Safety at MRFs appeared first on Forester Network.

      Editor’s note: This article first appeared in the November/December 2012 edition of MSW Management. At a staff meeting some decades ago, we began talking about a potential expansion to one of our active landfills. There was a small tract of open ground adjacent to the landfill—actually it was within the buffer zone—that would work very well for The post Effective Dewatering – Part 1 appeared first on Forester Network.

  • Facts on Glass Recycling
    • Authors: Marc J. Rogoff; Robert B. Gardner
      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.

  • 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 ...
