Food waste was the focus for Peter Ridley Waste Systems. It used RWM to show the Henkel 120 and 240 litre wheeled bins which have a uniquely spherical shaped base and body; as well as the 120 and 180 litre FatBOXX. The latter feature an additional air-tight and liquid tight lid seal.
The Henkel spherical shaped smooth bottomed bins offer faster emptying and up to 20% quicker and residue-free discharge for minimal easy cleaning. Combined with strong body structure, heavy duty axles and specially developed wheels with a quick release option, Henkel wheeled bins are designed for a longer life-span.
FatBOXX, which is already revolutionising the way used cooking oil can be recovered for processing for bio-diesel, provides that extra benefit of also containing both food waste odour and liquids, so it can be either used on a bin replacement system and transported or be emptied on-site.
Simply Waste Solutions and Moba Mobile Automation teamed up to introduce into the UK, what they believe is the most sophisticated on-board weighing and bin identification solution for the waste management industry currently available in the European market.
The system, which Moba has begun fitting to Simply Waste’s fleet of trade waste vehicles, will deliver high weighing accuracy which will enable it to provide greater levels of service and management information to its customers.
Speaking at the system’s launch at RWM 2013, Simply Waste Solutions managing director James Capel said: “This new investment in technology will provide our customers with even greater transparency on the waste they generate, which in turn could help them to reduce the volume of waste they produce and aid them to recycle more.”
Simply Waste Solutions was convinced by Moba’s vibrating-wire technology in which weighing sensors convert force into an electrical signal. This patented concept is able to generate directly a digital output signal, which is extremely accurate and offers immunity to interference and electronic signal processing.
Terberg Matec UK launched two different product lines at the exhibition, announcing its exclusive distribution agreements with Spanish manufacturer Ausa and French manufacturer PB Environnement for the UK and Irish markets.
The agreements mean Terberg Matec UK will introduce Ausa’s urban line of products and PB Environnement’s range of compact RCVs to the UK and Irish municipal markets.
From Ausa, Terberg showed two of the popular B 200 H compact sweepers featuring a class leading wall to wall turning circle, a very fuel efficient VW TDi engine and a host of other unique features. From PB Environnement, it showed the PBE Medium+ and Mega G3 compact RCVs, the Medium+ offering a payload of 2.5 tonnes and capacity of 7 cubic metres, while the newly developed Mega G3 provides 8 cubic metres and a payload of 3 tonnes from a 7.5t GVW vehicle.
Rob Colby, director for Terberg Matec UK said: “The Ausa and PB Environnement range of products perfectly complement our existing family of products. We have specifically chosen the versatile and popular 2m3 (B200 H) sweeper as our launch model and fully expect it to impress the UK and Irish markets. Together with the PB Environnement Medium+ and Mega G3 we have a host of exciting additions to our product family that will greatly enhance our market presence and of course generate great opportunities for growth.”
Telematics provider VeriLocation has partnered with Dataset, a software solution company, to produce an integrated tracking and order processing system designed for the skip and trade waste industry.
This combines VeriLocation’s web-based tracking with Dataset’s software and personal digital assistant (PDA) application to give a ‘one-stop’ solution to asset tracking and job management. With the ability to integrate customer information and data from other databases, the order processing system provides users with a complete fleet management package to process jobs, keep on top of their progress and invoice customers once complete.
VeriLocation’s route optimisation software will arrange driver’s routes into the most efficient order, to maximise the number of deliveries and collections that can be performed. These jobs will then be pushed to the driver’s PDAs with an address, an estimated time of arrival and any further information they may need. Assets can be tracked in real-time, instantly relaying job status updates with timestamps back to the office, giving full visibility of fleets.
