Semi-Automated Collection Service
Allied Waste Services offers an automated garbage collection system in numerous communities across Northeast Illinois. The special collection vehicle employs a robotic arm to lift and dump 68 and 96-gallon wheeled carts. The whole process takes about 10 seconds and is capable of operating at a lower RPM, resulting in less noise during collection. A tipper attachment and a robotic arm are used in areas with overhead clearance limitations. Consistent with the demands of efficiency and cost effectiveness, the incorporation of state-of-the-art equipment provides better fuel efficiency, higher productivity, reduced downtime and fewer on-the-job injuries. Together these factors help keep operation costs down and our prices competitive.
Using our automated and semi-automated collection vehicles to pick up recycling bins, we provide quick and efficient pick up of residential recyclables. Still, we are continually looking for ways to make it easier for our customers to recycle. With the introduction of bigger containers and commingled recycling, it is our hope that more people will be able to recycle on a daily basis.
Allied Waste Services’ sorting service allows our customers to put select recyclables, such as paper, cardboard and metals in one container. The recycling hauler takes the materials to a sorting facility where the materials are separated for recycling by hand.
Source Separated Recycling
Allied Waste Services also provides residential customers with separate recycling bins for select recyclables, such as paper and cardboard, while allowing for commingled recycling of items such as glass, metal, aluminum, plastics and household containers. The recycling hauler takes the materials directly to a recycling facility or a transfer site.
Curbside Collection of Yard Waste
Allied Waste Services provides curbside yard waste collection programs as part of regular refuse collection or as a separate resident-paid program. Allied Waste Services can also provide a yard waste drop-off program where residents can participate on an as-needed basis.
