Carts System Implementation and Collection Evaluation
Advanced Enviro’s has nationally recognized integrated waste management consulting services includes cart and collection system evaluation focusing on proper cart size, frequency and collection. Cart systems reduce municipal waste management costs by an estimated 35%.
Achieve Immediate Results:
Municipalities across Canada are implementing cart systems to increase diversion rates and reduce costs. Advanced Enviro has implemented cart systems in municipalities across Alberta including Medicine Hat, Strathcona County, Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, Devon, Didsbury, Olds, Sundre etc. When combined with Advanced Enviro’s proven IWM communications program, municipalities achieve immediate results. For example, the City of Spruce Grove achieved a 35% diversion rate immediately after implementing an affordable organics cart system! Strathcona County achieved a diversion rate of 65% in one year and after implementing a two-cart system!
Cart systems involve the distribution of wheeled, lidded carts (available in various sizes), for the collection of all waste streams including garbage, organic waste and recyclables. Municipalities generally start with one stream (i.e. garbage) and build to two streams (organics – for an immediate 35% diversion) and three streams (recyclables – for an additional 15% diversion). The carts allow for an automated system where carts are emptied by a lift rather than manually. Municipalities can continue to use their current fleet with the required lifting equipment added on at minimal cost. The carts have a 10 year warranty.
Cart System Evaluation
AE staff will conduct on street evaluation for your municipality, hauling company, or other and provide you with recommendations to improve your collection efficiency based on container fill volume, placement, type, lifting mechanism and most importantly cycle time.
Benefits of Cart Systems:
Safer for workers reducing costly workers compensation claims
Increased diversion rate – longer landfill life
Simplifies collection, relying on mechanization versus manual labour to load materials
Automated collection increases collection efficiency
Improved curbside appeal with uniformity in containers
One cart meets typical garbage capacity needs and makes garbage limits easy to implement
Carts can be easily handled by residents of almost any age
Allows for improved communication and less frustration
Cleanliness – no garbage or recyclables scattered by animals or elements
We will focus on increasing your load density and reducing your per container cycle time for your scenario.
