Curbertender Sweepers awarded Sourcewell contract Government fleets in the U.S. and Canada can now purchase street sweepers without a lengthy procurement process. Curbtender Inc. and its subsidiary Curbtender Sweepers, a street maintenance vehicle manufacturer based in Cedar Falls, Iowa, have earned a Sourcewell contract award in the “Street Sweepers and Specialty Sweepers” category. According to a news release from Curbtender, Sourcewell, formerly the National Joint Powers Alliance, is a government organization partnering with education, government and nonprofits to boost student and community success based in Staples, Minnesota. With the cooperative purchase contract, government fleets in the U.S. and Canada can purchase street sweepers and leaf loaders from Curbtender Sweepers without a lengthy and costly bid procurement process. Sourcewell members additionally receive a free one-year extended warranty when buying products from Curbtender. Curbtender Sweepers manufactures leaf collection vehicles and mechanical street sweepers. Last year, the company expanded into grapple loader trucks when it acquired the Brush Hawg brand of brush, debris and limb loaders. Toter Toter’s EVR-Green cart features recycled body The company is working to offer EVR-Green carts with fully recycled lids and wheels as well. Toter, a provider of waste and recycling containers based in Charlotte, North Carolina, has introduced the EVR-Green 100 percent recycled cart body. The lids and wheels also contain some recycled content; however, Toter has not specified the percentage of recycled content used in those parts. The company says it is working to offer EVR-Green carts that also feature fully recycled lids and wheels in the future. Manufactured with a variety of recycled materials, the company says the two-wheeled cart is the “first and only fully recycled cart body and fully recyclable cart on the market.” According to Toter, the company made a commitment to reduce its overall virgin resin use by 25 percent starting this year in an effort to drive down its carbon emissions based on a 2020 life cycle assessment the company performed. The company says it is securing a combination of postindustrial and postconsumer resin for the EVR-Green carts. The carts come in 32-, 48-, 64- and 96-gallon models. According to a news release from Toter, the EVR-Green features Toter’s Advanced Rotational Molding process, ensuring a stronger and more durable performance than receptacles that feature an injection-molded design. The carts are being manufactured at two of the company's facilities in Statesville, North Carolina, and Acuña, Mexico. Toter says the EVR-Green also features a UV-stable, stress-free and zero-pressure single-piece design. The container walls have a consistent thickness and are resistant against corrosion and chemicals. It also comes with Toter’s Rugged Rim, sealed stop bar journals and a granite finish. The cart will initially be available in black. Toter says the EVR-Green is an ideal selection for a variety of end users, including municipalities, residential users, commercial facilities, industrial facilities and waste haulers. “Toter’s 100 percent recycled EVR-Green cart body is a sustainability game-changer for the waste collection industry,” says Nick Daddabbo, Toter’s director of product management. “We have been hard at work to develop a cart that will uphold the quality buyers rely on from our brand while providing a product they can feel good about using.” McKinney, Texas-based Global Recruiters Network (GRN) of McKinney has announced the placement of John Doyen as president and chief operating officer of Gold Medal Environmental LLC, which is based in Baltimore. Doyen has more than 30 years of environmental service experience, according to GRN, “with a heavy focus on hauling, collections, recycling and landfill operations.” Prior to joining Gold Medal, Doyen was the vice president of operations for Clearwater, Florida-based Orion Waste Solutions. Prior to that, he was an area president for Phoenix-based Republic Services, where he oversaw a $500 million region comprised of seven business units and 23 divisions. Gold Medal, which also manages assets under the Apple Valley Waste name, is a portfolio company of New York-based Kinderhook Industries LLC. That private investment firm manages more than $4.7 billion of “committed capital,” according to GRN. Gold Medal describes itself as offering collection, processing, disposal and recycling services in Maryland, West Virginia, Central Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey. The firm says it focuses on creating sustainably sound waste management processes while delivering superior service by balancing traditional waste management services with "cutting-edge eco-friendly solutions and real-world data." “John is the perfect fit for the Gold Medal/Apple Valley teams,” says Darren Gruendel, CEO of Gold Medal. “He develops and empowers organizational leaders to be entrepreneurial decision-makers in their markets. With his experience at every level of these organizations, John will accelerate and complete the transformation of Gold Medal. It’s exciting.” Biffa, a large integrated waste management business based in the United Kingdom, has entered into a partnership with Esterform Packaging, a U.K.-based independent producer of plastic bottles for carbonated drinks and alcohol, to supply the bottle producer with recycled plastic. According to a news release from Biffa, Esterform will use about 6,000 metric tons of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) from Biffa at its factories in Leeds and Worcestershire every year. Biffa processes that PET at its Seaham facility, which the company says is capable of recycling more than 2 billion plastic bottles per year. “We’re delighted to be working alongside Esterform who share our passion for creating a circular economy—a system where materials are recycled for as long as possible,” says Chris Hanlon, Biffa’s commercial director of polymers. “We look forward to a long and successful partnership as we continue to work with them to grow the recycled content of their PET bottles.” Biffa reports that packaging producers in the U.K. are now required to use at least 30 percent recycled plastic in their products in order to avoid the nation’s new plastic packaging tax. The deal with Esterform was signed after the plastic recycled at Biffa’s plant in Seaham was awarded food-grade status by the European Food Safety Authority. CEO and co-founder of Compology Jason Gates recently appeared before the Congressional Recycling Caucus to brief its members on the environmental and cost savings benefits of waste metering. His brief included how metering can be scaled to meet the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) goal to increase the recycling rate to 50 percent by 2030. During his brief, Gates gave an overview of how Compology ’s waste metering technology mitigates this problem and ensures contaminants are identified and removed before waste collection. Gates also shared results from Compology’s recent meter launch with Miami. The city implemented waste metering across its municipal dumpsters to reduce CO2 emissions, traffic congestion, noise pollution and illegal dumping while improving code compliance and enhancing urban beautification efforts. Gates shared that initial results from the pilot predicted a 50 percent increase in recycling rates at dozens of municipal buildings and thousands of tons of C02 reduced. The Congressional Recycling Caucus, co-chaired in the House by Rep. Frank Pallone (D-NJ-06), Rep. David Joyce (R-OH-14), Rep. Haley Stevens (D-MI-11) and Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL-13) and in the Senate by Sen. Tom Carper (D-D.E.) and Sen. John Boozman (R-Ark. ), is a bipartisan caucus. The group is focused on educating members of Congress and congressional staff on the need for recycling and its environmental and economic benefits. It also supports public policies aimed at increasing recycling across the United States. Gates highlighted how 1,300 brands, including McDonald’s, Apple and Google, have implemented waste metering technology to report on waste and recycling. Gates highlighted how the environmental and cost-saving results experienced by the private sector can be replicated in the public sector. As a result of outdated infrastructure, much of the country’s waste ends up in landfills, responsible for 15 percent of the United States’ total methane emissions. Compology says disinvestment in green technology and poor recycling education leaves recycling facilities unable to properly sort highly contaminated materials. This diverts 30 percent of recyclable materials directly into landfills.
