EZ Side Slide Roll-Off Cover
The rainy and snowy season is upon us! As you are likely aware, rain and snowmelt brings benefits (everyone knows about the drought), however, it also brings problems with storm water runoff, especially with aggressive rainfall. Pollutants carried in storm water runoff are being closely watched and regulated by state and federal officials. The news is reporting on this damage and calling out businesses that largely contribute to the environmental damage.
 


Consolidated Fabricators now offers a solution—our EZ Side Slide Covers. Our lightweight and easy to use solutions keep the contents of your roll-off dry, while ensuring contaminants out of the storm drains and landfill.  Added benefits include a lighter, drier container reduces tipping fees and these watertight lids help to prevent rust and leachate. With our lids you can be SWPP compliant, meet EPA standards and reduce or eliminate inspection fees!
 


These lids are available on your new rectangular or radius bottom roll-offs OR can be purchased as a kit of parts that you could install on your existing equipment. The lids fit 20, 30 and 40 yard roll-offs and the lids can be ordered to hinge on either side (the passenger side is standard).

Make No Mistake Godzilla El Nino Is Coming...How Does That Impact The Waste Industry?
Forecasters at NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center issued the U.S. Winter Outlook favoring cooler and wetter weather in southern tier states with above-average temperatures most likely in the West and across the northern tier. This year’s El Niño, among the strongest on record, is expected to influence weather and climate patterns this winter by impacting the position of the Pacific jet stream. “A strong El Niño is in place and should exert a strong influence over our weather this winter,” said Mike Halpert, deputy director, NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center. PDF download

Food Waste
Great strides are being made to reduce food waste. Under California’s new organics recycling bill, food and other green waste generated by the state’s commercial sector must be composted or anaerobically digested—a process using bacteria to turn food and other organic materials into renewable energy. This will help California cut greenhouse gas emissions and divert more material from the landfill by reducing, recycling and composting 75% of our waste by 2020. PDF download
