Some time ago A. DiLemme Contracting of New York State was looking for a way to minimise the costs for demolition work throughout Long Island and the Greater Metro New York area. The 40-year company found the solution in an RM70 GO!. “Reducing our waste volume not only decreases the amount of trucking, it also reduces the amount of diesel fuel and wear costs as a result,” explains Vice President David DiLemme. “On the first day of crushing in Patchouge, Long Island, NY, I was not only impressed by the compactness, reliability and production of the machine, I was also impressed by the quality product that was being produced.” The first job site was an old auto repair garage with a considerable amount of car parts poured into the concrete slab. “The magnet on the RM70 GO! removed all steel from the crushed material and David DiLemme was overly impressed,” says RM US dealer D.J. Cavaliere of COR Equipment Sales. This job was followed by even more positive news. During the three-day crushing operation many local contractors stopped by to have a look at the performance of the RM70 GO! and it only took David DiLemme a few moments to see the need for such a solution. “There is a big need for mobile crushing services on Long Island,” says DiLemme. “We will not only be crushing for ourselves with the RM70 GO!, we now have the potential for crushing rubble for other companies as well.”

How climate risk is like a flaming truck barreling toward us, and why it’s time to hit the brakes
A narrow escape from a catastrophic car accident sheds new light on an even bigger threat. It was a normal Saturday afternoon, with the promise of fun: My wife, Mary, and I were driving into New York City for dinner, drinks and a show with friends. I set the cruise control at 72 miles per hour, thinking I should be cautious because it was pouring rain. In retrospect, 72 was not cautious. This is a cautionary tale. I survived to tell it, though not everyone did. The lesson I drew is one about risks, worst-case...
Recycler solves waste oil problem, attains EPA compliance
Environmental compliance is a major concern and challenge for the recycling industry. There are few recycling industries that face a stiffer challenge than auto recyclers.

Golf carts on interstate highways?
If you trust the television images, it appears that soon we will all drive cars the size of golf carts because of Obama’s new fuel standards. Newscast after newscast illustrated the new 35.5 CAFÉ (Corporate Average Fuel Economy) standard with a two-seater microcar. In some cases the image was juxtaposed with a threatening-looking SUV, usually black — Darth Vader on his way to crush the rebellion.The message? Be afraid. Be very afraid. And to be honest, I was. My first thought? There is no way my kids are getting...

Car and e-scrap recycling: the Chinese experience
In late November, more than 220 delegates met in China for the World Recycling - Shanghai congress organised by Switzerland-based ICM. Among other issues, the focus fell on latest trends in car and electronics scrap recycling within China itself. Several speakers emphasised that much remains to be done to bring the country into line with standards adopted in other parts of the world. Tighter controls and the development of a more organised infrastructure should be among the top priorities if China is to make...
