The operation of compaction systems at remote sites is challenging because of the need to manually cycle the units. Sequin Township proposes to test a new means of automating these systems and insulating the hydraulic system to reduce winter heating costs. The proposed retrofits will cost $16,000 with CIF contributing up to 41% subject to proof of concept. These retrofits are expected to have a payback of 2 years and the information will benefit the dozens of compactor systems in operation across Ontario.
