Picture of landfill grinder system 1

The grinding system was implemented in April of 2012. This pioneering system yields the following benefits:

Increased waste compaction = minimizes differential settling
More waste per cubic yard = Increased landfill capacity
System provides opportunity to reclaim ferrous metals
System reduces landfill costs by “in-sourcing” wood grinding
System will yield much longer life spans for heavy equipment

The Terminator is a single shaft, low speed, high torque grinder. It utilizes a 475 HP Caterpillar diesel motor to power the hydraulic system. A rare earth magnet with conveyor can be used to reclaim ferrous metals post-grinding.
