California Keeping Holiday Trash From Adding To Landfills

Published by:

It is a general fact that the trash generated during the holidays is higher compared to other times of the year. The state of California has taken measures in order to keep the trash from being sent to the landfill but there is no escaping the truth that it will not be an easy feat. Holidays means more gift boxes and wrapping paper and some buy packing boxes online for their moving needs.

Joe Hernandez is the driver of a recycling truck and he was tasked in collecting and delivering collectibles to the Monterey Regional Waste Management District. The amount of recyclables gathered by his truck shows how much wastes have been accumulated during the holidays.

Hernandez said that majority of the recyclable wastes are boxes and wrapping papers. Despite the fact that they can be recycled, a considerable amount will be sent to the landfill.

The Public Education and Outreach Specialist of the district, Angela Goebel, said that majority of the people do not know how to do recycling correctly. She revealed that one of the most common mistakes that people make is placing boxes, wrapping papers as well as ribbons inside a plastic bag to manage their space.

Goebel added that the workers in the sorting line of the recycling facility will not check the recyclables inside the plastic bag but they will be considered as trash right away. It will take a lot of effort to go through each bag and inspect the contents. They can’t place their hands inside the bag due to safety reasons.

She also said that they have seen way too many packages sent by online shops and inside them are bubble wrap and Styrofoam. People just throw the entire thing in their recycling but they do not separate them thus they can’t be recycled in the end.

The state of California is now hoping to reduce the wastes they are sending to the landscape by 75 per cent in 2020. This can be accomplished if people reduce the wastes they generate, buy packing boxes online and reuse them and follow the proper steps in recycling as well as composting.

It is also rare to find regional Thai dishes like spicy sea foods and offal-forward dishes.

World’s First Extra Large Tyre Recycling Plant To Open In Australia

Published by:

As the world embraces environment friendliness more and more, recycling  is becoming a key aspect of businesses and systems everywhere, not only as a means of reducing waste, but also as a way of cutting down on costs, both in production as well as disposal. One of the most notably recycled automotive items are tyres, which good for stores that have excess stocks of their cheap tyres in Brisbane, as this means that their unsold goods don’t need to gather dust somewhere.

To that end, the world’s first recycling plant dedicated to handling extra-large tyres, such as those used on colossal mining dump trucks will be opening in Western Australia, near the city of Perth in the year 2018.

This new facility is a joint venture between the Tytec Group and Green Distillation Technologies, the latter being a global level tyre recycling company with several awards to its name. The two worked together to establish the Perth-based Tytec Recycling Pty Ltd., which will then undertake the task of economically recycling large OTR (off the road) tyres. OTR  tyres are tyres which have rims sizes which range from 23 inches, all the way up to 63, and are used on the large, mining dump trucks which have become more and more common in the country.

GDT has developed technology that is capable of recycling even the larger end-of-life tyres into oil, carbon and steel, a first for both Australia and the world. The new process is dubbed, ‘destructive distillation’ and will be the core of the new facility, which will recycle every bit of the tyres, not merely cut or crumb the rubber.

Tytec Logistics will handle the transporting of OTR tyres to the new site, seeing as they hold 75% of Australia’s OTR logistics market, on top of also providing storage services for extra large tires.

This new facility will be located in the Tytec branch at the suburb of Welshpool, and will have a capacity of 5 kilotonnes of OTR tyres, which amount to about 2M litres of oil, 2 kilotonnesof carbon and 1 kilotonne of steel.
