Brazos Valley Solid Waste Management Agency opted to purchase their own grinder—a Morbark 4600XL—and take back control of the grinding effort at Twin Oaks, a state-of-the-art facility that is designed to meet the area’s waste disposal needs for the next 60 years.
The Kittitas County Solid Waste department, when faced with a decision to make about its green waste, bucked tradition by replacing a contract grinding service, purchasing an electric grinder, and has been generating its own high-quality compost for better than four years now.
To meet environmental mandates, the City of Bakersfield, Calif., makes a switch from diesel to electric equipment in its green/wood waste processing effort.
Not only is the new Morbark 3800 Wood Hog horizontal grinder bringing the city of Lompoc, Calif., into compliance with Tier-4 standards, but also it has proven more productive, more efficient and lower in maintenance costs than the unit it replaced. Not a bad trade-off at all.
