Landfill compactors or compactors can be defined as variations on the wheeled loader principle or as models developed from that concept, and feature hydrostatic drives and enclosed frame structures.

The Mechanics of Waste Compaction

The Mechanics of Waste Compaction

Many landfill managers believe there is a simple formula for achieving maximum landfill compaction density: A + B = C And it sounds pretty straightforward. Given: A-Achieving optimum waste compaction is a cornerstone of proper landfill operation. True B-Buying a steel-wheeled landfill compactor is the industry-accepted means of achieving optimum

Safer, Faster, and Smarter

But did you ever stop to think about it-I mean really think about it? In order for us to have this expectation-that we could put massive machines to work and then just expect them to perform-someone, somewhere did a lot of work. Yes, before the RFP and the sales person,

Airspace Management Is Resource Management

Airspace Management Is Resource Management

Among the many things landfill managers do, managing airspace is a top priority-after all, it is a landfill’s primary resource. To do it well, this singular task requires expertise in such different disciplines as surveying, finance, civil engineering, regulatory compliance, machine operation, recycling, and an understanding of the biological, chemical,

Waste Compaction: Defining Great

Waste Compaction: Defining Great

Waste compaction is a cornerstone of landfill operations. A survey I once conducted indicated that waste compaction is one of the highest operational priorities for a landfill manager-No surprise there. But what is surprising is how limited-as an industry-our thinking is. Now to be sure, I’m not tossing every manager

Landfill Airspace: a Holistic Approach

Landfill Airspace: a Holistic Approach

All landfills are similar; but then again, they aren’t. Some landfills are simply more efficient and more competitive than others. One important characteristic of a competitive landfill is the ability to use airspace effectively-important because it results in reduced operating costs, deferred capital costs, and a more competitive bottom line.

One of the Fine Points: Waste Compaction

One of the Fine Points: Waste Compaction

You’ve heard it before…and will again: Waste compaction is a foundational part of sound, efficient landfill operations. And lots of effort has gone into ways to pack the most trash into a fixed space. Machine manufacturers, as well as specialty manufacturers of compactor wheels and teeth, are continually improving their
