China Scrap Reductions and its effect on scrap metal recycling

November 26, 2017

From the NY Times

China Slows Garbage Imports and Impact Is Felt Globally

China, a longtime importer of international waste, has tightened its regulations, weighing on livelihoods domestic and foreign.

HONG KONG — When the street value of scrap cardboard here fell by nearly a third this summer, Leung Siu-Guen, a scrap collector, started to worry.

“I began skipping dinner so I could work harder,” said Ms. Leung, who was already moonlighting as a dishwasher, sleeping fewer than five hours a night and making as little as $500 a month. The drop in price, to the equivalent of about 6 cents a kilogram, would require further sacrifices.

Since the 1990s, the world has shipped its waste paper, discarded plastic and unwanted metals to China, where they are destined to be used as raw materials to help power the country’s export-driven manufacturing boom. In 2016, China imported about $18 billion worth of what the government calls solid waste.

But China doesn’t want to be the rest of the world’s trash can. Over the summer, regulators in Beijing started an unusually intense crackdown on what they called “foreign garbage,” citing health and environmental concerns.

As with so much else in the global economy, China’s decision is rippling through a vast supply chain that stretches from big waste companies in Texas to the “cardboard grannies” in Hong Kong like Ms. Leung that pick through mounds of paper and plastic. Scrap dealers are rushing to find buyers elsewhere in Asia, but the Chinese market is so large that it cannot be easily replaced.

“It’s almost like they turned the spigot off overnight,” said Jim Fish, the president of Waste Management, a Houston-based company that is the largest recycler of residential waste in North America.

As China revved up its manufacturing machine to power growth over the years, officials were willing to tolerate some of the downside of scrap, namely the pollution of local soil and rivers by low-end recycling practices. But China’s economic might increasingly means that it no longer needs to make such environmental sacrifices.

Fears of widespread domestic pollution were amplified by “Plastic China,” a recent documentary film about a bleak town in the eastern province of Shandong where people earn their living by picking through scrap plastics and processing them in machines that belch black smoke. The film went viral in mainland China in January before disappearing from the internet there.

Pollution in the industry is “not only China’s problem,” said Wang Jiuliang, the film’s director.

“It’s the world’s common challenge,” he said.

China’s regulatory fight against imported garbage began in 2013, when a flurry of port inspections forced overseas recyclers to clean up their operations and invest in new waste-sorting technologies.

In July, China raised the stakes by telling the World Trade Organization that it would ban 24 kinds of imported waste, including some types of paper and plastics, by the end of the year. Chinese regulators also began restricting wastepaper imports.

“I was angry, but I knew I was just a small businesswoman,” Ms. Leung, 63, said of the wastepaper restrictions as she picked through cardboard, polystyrene and soda cans in a rat-infested alley in the Mong Kok district of Hong Kong on a recent morning.

Ms. Leung and thousands of other small-time scrap collectors sell the waste to traders at bare-bones collection points in this semiautonomous Chinese territory. The waste is then processed at recycling depots and exported to mainland China or elsewhere.

In the United States, the new rules mean more garbage could stay at home. While that could be good news for some recyclers, it could also mean more waste in the country’s landfills, according to the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, a lobbying group based in Washington.

Recyclers might also have to upgrade their facilities to handle the waste, leading to higher costs for American municipalities and taxpayers, said Adam Minter, a recycling expert and author of “Junkyard Planet: Travels in the Billion-Dollar Trash Trade.”

“Without China, there will be less recycling in the United States, and it will cost more,” Mr. Minter said.

Workers at Hong Kong’s junkyards and scrap depots said that Beijing’s new and pending restrictions on waste imports were already affecting their bottom lines.

At a recycling depot on the city’s outskirts that looks out onto the Chinese mainland, the manager, Ryan Cheung, said local scrap collectors were selling him more plastics than usual, apparently because the new rules were already limiting their options. As a result, chest-high pallets of off-white packaging film were piling up under the depot’s corrugated-metal roof.

“I can’t buy anymore,” he said, standing near a pitching-mound-size heap of dismembered Barbie dolls as garbage trucks lumbered down a nearby road toward a landfill. “I have too much.”

Roll off Trailer Safety and Fake News

August 11, 2017

Roll off Trailer Safety and Fake News

 

Roll off Trailers are very safe and BENLEE trailers are true work horses when used correctly.  Also, competition makes the world a better place.  We are flattered how many small competitors have done their best to copy our best selling Super Mini and copy design features of our other trailers.  The Super Mini remains a top seller and we continue to thank OmniSource for suggesting we develop it 11 years ago.  It is a great roll off truck replacement.  5, yes, FIVE companies have tried to copy it, but none match the BENLEE Super Mini.  Also today is sells for about 9 percent more that the original price 11 years ago, despite many, many upgrades!

BENLEE has been operating in MI for 43 years.  Literally about 98% of all 6 and 7 axle trailers on the road today were built by BENLEE/DUNRIGHT.  98% is a big number.  The reason is while BENLEE is not perfect, Bill Wolok founded and built a great company and then my team and I (many still on the team that Bill hired) made it a better company and have made more that 40 upgrades to our BENLEE roll off trailers in the last 12 years since Bill sold me the company.

I am writing, due to a new term has made it into our lives.  Fake News.   I will now use that term.  Earlier today, we were made aware of a small competitor that sent out information that had fake news that could also be a major safety issue.

A competitor sent out an email that said that their customer owned a their 4 axle trailer and that:

“This customer is able to get the same legal payload as a 43′ 6-Axle “Conventional” Roll off Trailer”.  

In Michigan GVW is calculated as 15,000 for the tractor steer, 16,000 for each of the tandem drive axles on tractor, and 13,000 for each trailer axle.

Competitor’s 4 Axle (we used their data on their weight and approx. tractor weight they use)

4 axle is 15,000+16000+16000+13000+13000+13000+13000=99,000 GVW.

Then if:

18,000 lbs. Tractor

17,340 lbs. Trailer

6,000 lbs. Box

41,340 lbs. Empty

 

99,000 GVW for 4 axle

41,340 Empty

57,660 Can carry in a box by a competitor’s 4 axle

6 axle is 15,000+16000+16000+13000+13000+13000+13000+13000+13000=125,000 GVW

Then if:

18,000 lbs. Tractor

30,880 lbs. Trailer

6,000 lbs. Box

54,880 lbs. Empty

125,000 GVW for 6 Axle

54,880 Empty

  70,120 lbs. Can carry in a box by a BENLEE 6 axle

A Six axle can carry 70,120 so then -57,660=12,460 lbs. more, which is 21.6% more weight with a 6 axle, vs. a 4 axle

We will also add that the competitor’s email tells of a very scary thought, which again is not even legal.  Picking up a load of 70,120 and a 6,000 lb. box, so about 76,120 as well as part of the weight of a trailer, so say 9,000, meaning total of 85,120 lbs. on two axles and one single point suspension is a sure way to cause a very serious issue.

Bottom line is a company wrote today that their 4 axle trailer can carry what a BENLEE 6 axle can carry.  That is not only Fake News, it is dangerous.
