A Landfill LEEDs With Silver

As seen in MSW Management, June 2013 issue:

Operated by the Brazos Valley Solid Waste Management Agency (BVSWMA, pronounced buh-VIS-ma), Twin Oaks is a state-of-the-art facility that is designed to meet the area’s waste disposal needs for the next 60 years. A decent portion of that overall wastestream is greenwaste generated from throughout the area, material that was, in the past, stockpiled then processed by a contract grinder. Realizing that doing so meant being at the mercy of someone else’s operation from both a financial and logistical perspective, BVSWMA opted to purchase its own grinder—a Morbark 4600XL Wood Hog—and take back control of the grinding effort.
