McDougall Landfill Solar Compactors Project

Projects Description

This project involves the installation of two solar powered compactor at the McDougall Township Landfill to capture corrugated cardboard currently being landfilled by residents.  The compactors are solar powered with the capability to be hooked up with 110V or single phase back up. Their usage will allow the capture of an additional 300 tonnes/yr of material at an estimated 25% of the cost of providing the service with open top rolloffs.   A project payback of under 5 years is expected.
