South Bend, Indiana (PressExposure) July 31, 2007 -- Disposal of unwanted skids is a challenge at any facility. Skids are difficult to stack, bulky to handle, take up a lot of space in trash dumpsters, and create excessive environmental costs for landfill expense.
As a result, an investigation was undertaken to address this problem. The plant considered three (3) options - a pallet grinder, shipping the used skids to a local grinder, and a pallet crusher. An on site pallet grinder could potentially expose the plant to safety and maintenance concerns. The local grinder could not consistently pull skids from the plant in sufficient volumes to eliminate the problem. Finally a possible solution was found. Our Purchasing Manager contacted Mr. Robert Kamppi from Enviro Waste Systems, a company that manufactures and markets a machine that crushes a verity of waste and splinters pallet material.
The Purchasing Manger arranged for a meeting with Mr. Kamppi in August. Mr. Kamppi brought him to see a EWS 7700 Pulverizer in action crushing pallets at a site that was having great success with over coming the issues presented by waste pallets. The Purchasing Manager was so impressed by what he saw and the facts that where explained to him by Mr. Kamppi that he took delivery of a EWS 7700 in November. Mr. Kamppi was a great help in deciding where the machine would be placed, the delivery and set-up of the machine and in training our people how to safely operate the machine. This piece of equipment operates inside an existing dumpster. A large spiked roller is rolled back and forth over the skids, splintering and crushing the wood. With this process, the volume of wood handled and shipped to landfill in each dumpster has increased almost (5) fivefold. This will save the plant over $50,000 annually. Prior to the installation of the EWS 7700, we shipped and average of 1.8 tons of pallets per dumpster. That average has increased to almost 10 tons of pallets per dumpster. Additionally, the number of trips to the landfill has been reduced by more than 75%. Hats off to the Purchasing Manager for improving our environmental footprint and reducing our waste costs so dramatically.
This is just one example of a truly happy customer in a list of many. Mr. Robert Kamppi and Enviro Waste Systems are announcing that after the enormous success of there service agreement pilot program, they will be offering the service agreement on a national basis.
The Service Agreement program allows qualified Manufactures, and any Company that is producing large volumes of waste to receive up to a 20% guaranteed reduction of waste hauling costs. They will also have delivered to them a high production, waste handling machine at no direct cost. No delivery, Set-up, or training cost. All the customer has to do is run there waste thru the machine and let Robert Kamppi and Enviro Waste Systems take care of the rest.
The service agreement has been developed to give companies the opportunity to use the machine at no risk and to see for themselves the guaranteed reduction in there environmental foot print and there waste hauling costs.
Once a customer on the service agreement, they will have the opportunity to stay at the up to 20% reduction level or to allow Robert Kamppi to show them how to reduce there waste hauling costs by 40%, 50%, even 60% net and more.
