Type IA IIA Facility Industrial Non-Hazardous Solid Waste Minimization and Process for Recycling Program
The material, which has been tested, profiled and manifested, arrives at our site via truck transport.
The driver presents the manifest documents to our Warehouse foreman for approval and acceptance before entering the processing area.
If the paperwork is in order, the material proceeds to the back of the main building to enter the plant.
arrival, the material is visually inspected by our staff to see if
the load matches the manifest. Then, the material is off-loaded into
the containment area for further inspection and verification that
the load does in fact match the paper work.
If all is well at this point, the material continues into the
NOTE: There is a metal catch basin (containment) directly below the cutting blades of the shredder to catch any liquids that may have carried over into this phase of the process. This containment device is hard-piped back into the main containment area for proper routing of these liquids.
NOTE: The conveyor belt is fitted with a galvanized metal trough that catches and routes and free liquids that may still be present at this stage of the process into the catch basin under the shredder. The collected liquids drain into the main containment area
NOTE: There is a final drain station at the compactor unit for any liquids that may have come this far in the process. This liquid is routed into an additional sump station that is tied-into the same sump station that is located in the containment area.Next, the material is pushed into one of our compactor bins, which further reduces its mass. Following this final step, the material is transported off-site to use as supplemental fuels i.e. Waste to Energy.
