US Is One of the Biggest E-Waste Offenders

LogoElectronics have become more and more popular over time, meaning that it should come as no surprise to learn that e-waste has become more and more common as well. In fact, a 2015 UN report claimed that a staggering 46.1 million tons of e-waste was tossed into landfills in 2014 while a mere 7.2 million tons was sent-in for recycling. Of the 46.1 million tons, the United States led the list of countries at 7.8 million tons, followed by China, Japan, Germany, and India in that order. It is worth noting that the United States produced a total of 3.5 million tons back in 2008, meaning that the problem is becoming more and more serious over time.

Pollution Is Contributing to Antibiotic Resistance

LogoPollution puts a wide range of pollutants in the shared environment, which results in a wide range of consequences. One example is how countless species of harmful microorganisms are becoming more and more resistant to antibiotics, which is an enormous problem because we are reliant on them to protect ourselves as well as keeping a number of important economic sectors running in a smooth and uninterrupted manner. Although pollution is not the sole cause of the problem of rising antibiotic resistance, it is nonetheless a serious one.

LogoThe need to recycle food waste is becoming more and more prominent in the public consciousness as more and more recycling initiatives are launched.

For eco-friendly businesses, this is a reminder that reinforces the need to recycle their food waste, particularly by consulting a waste disposal company such as EnviroSolutions, Inc. with the relevant expertise and experience.

ESI Energy Capturing Project Underway at Big Run

LogoThe Big Run Landfill in Ashland, Kentucky, operated by EnviroSolutions, Inc. for over eight years is a waste removal company operating on nearly 1600 acres. Big Run's gas collection system was improved due to an investment of nearly $10,000,000 in May, when the number of vertical wells and collection points nearly doubled, thus tripling gas capture yields and reducing odor levels. However, landfill gas is still currently being destroyed by high-energy flares, pending the construction of a clean energy facility. This state-of-the-art facility at the Big Run Landfill waste removal company is due to convert gas produced by the landfill into clean energy, specifically renewable natural gas. EnviroSolutions' CEO, Dean Kattler, views the change as a welcome endeavor to 'support the landfill's operations well into the future'.
