High tech is all around us, and the trash disposal business is no exception. We just read an interesting article about a new way to handle household waste. Our business is recycling, and this is not really recycling, but it is a related activity, and, we thought, very interesting.
It is all about getting rid of household waste in an environmentally friendly manner, and that interests us. In this case the trash is put through a process that blasts it into gas and leaves any hazardous materials in a molten glass state that can be collected and disposed of safely while the gas can be used to drive the process itself. No more landfills required! You can read more about it in Wired by clicking on this link, “Trash to Gas“.
