On Wednesday, May 1, 2019, the Town of Cochrane invites the public to an open house and presentation to launch the 2019 Cochrane Cemetery Master Plan.
The system allows for one vehicle to pick up both household waste and recyclables at the same time in a split bodied vehicle. An automated arm lifts and empties the waste bin into the vehicle’s waste compartment.
The arm then lifts and empties the recycling bin into the recycling compartment.
At the landfill, the vehicle’s waste compartment is emptied first. Because sorting of recyclables is not necessary with the new system, recycling is much easier. This means less waste in the landfill.
The vehicle then empties the recycling compartment into the transfer station that will then be transported to a municipal recycling transfer station.
