  • Spain: Trash soldiers guard Barcelona bathers

    Hundreds of soldiers made out of discarded trash surprised sunbathers on the Barceloneta beach in Barcelona, on Friday. The soldiers are part of an installation designed by German artist H.A. Schult named "Save the beach", aiming to raise public awareness of the refuse choking local beaches. This initiative was created in 2009, with the rubbish soldiers having already been displayed in 720 spots around Europe with the help of more than 1,000 volunteers. Four beaches have been fully cleaned thanks to the installation, collecting 12 tons of waste. Trash is a recurrent topic in the work of the German artist, who also created the first hotel made of waste. The 'trash' soldiers can be visited until Saturday, when the exhibition will move on.

This free video was created for you by http://epsos.de and can be used for free under the creative commons license with the attribution of epSos.de as the original author of this waste management video. Thank you for supporting the creative commons movement !! The waste management is the collection, transportation, processing or treatment, recycling or disposal of waste material, generally produced by human activity, in an effort to reduce the harmful effects on health and aesthetics of the human environment, although currently working not only to reduce the harmful effects caused to the environment but to recover its resources. Waste management may include substances solid, liquid or gaseous different methods for each. Waste can be classified into: residential, industrial, agricultural and hospital, each of these residues is managed differently. Waste management also includes the management of hazardous waste. Waste management differs for developed and developing, to urban and rural areas residential, industrial and commercial producers. The management of non-hazardous waste for residential and / or areas in metropolitan areas is usually the responsibility of local government, while non-hazardous waste from industry itself is the responsibility of the waste generator. The efficient management of such waste is among other things, to minimize the amount of waste sent to landfill. These efforts include recycling, turning waste into energy, designing products that use less material, and legislation that gives a mandate to the manufacturers responsible for the disposal costs of products and become the packing (see the Product Management and Extended Producer Responsibility). For example in industrial ecology, where material flows between industries are studied, the byproducts of industry can be a useful material to another, resulting in a decrease in the final waste. A relatively recent idea in waste management is to treat the waste material as a resource to be exploited, rather than simply as a problem to be eliminated. There are different methods depending on the resources that can be extracted from waste: the materials can be extracted and recycled, or the calorific content of the waste it can be converted into electricity. The process of extracting resources from waste is called in several ways: secondary resource recovery, recycling, etc. The practice of treating waste materials as a resource becomes more common, especially in metropolitan areas where space for new landfills becomes more scarce. There is also a growing awareness that without further removal is unsustainable in the long term because there is a finite supply of most commodities. The management of urban, industrial and commercial waste has traditionally consisted of the collection, followed by the provision. Depending on the type of waste and the area, the process can continue with a specific treatment. This treatment may be to reduce their danger, recover material for recycling, produce energy, or reduce its volume for more efficient disposal. Collection methods vary widely between different countries and regions, and would be impossible to describe them all. For example, in Spain there from the typical plastic bucket which is collected daily by truck to a collection system pneumatic sucking waste at a speed of 100 km / h to a transfer center where it is collected by means of transport conventional. Many areas, particularly those less developed, have no formal collection system in place. The garbage truck is the vehicle that makes the transport of the products not used by the urban population of most cities in the world. There are several models. Vehicles normally given for domestic waste collection activities are trucks with compactors bodies or compactor truck, provide greater economy of fuel and storage space, in that it may carry a greater amount of waste. For the safety of workers some have television cameras in the rear with monitor in the cabin of the driver. The term "self-propelled motor vehicle" falling further and trucks, agricultural tractors and military vehicles without affecting the driver or without driver. Is not referred to as "autonomous land vehicle" an unmanned vehicle when there of people remotely needs to be, so do not autonomously can go. Autonomous cars can perceive by means of various sensors and their environment determine its position and that of other road users from the acquired information, driving in cooperation with the navigation software, the destination and avoid collisions on the road. Currently, many of the major car manufacturers are already investing worldwide in the development of autonomous cars, at the same time drive electronics and semiconductor industries, the development of technologies for advanced.

Thank you for supporting the creative commons movement !! A pickup truck debris, or colloquially called automatic garbage truck or truck toilet in Venezuela, is a truck specially designed to collect small amounts of waste and transport to landfills and treatment facilities and recycling. It can also provide the function of compressing the waste for higher capacity storage. They are very common in urban areas and also serve in rural areas. Paris will become the first city in the world to replace traditional internal automatic garbage trucks, noisy and polluting combustion, other more respectful of the rest of citizens and the environment electric. A automatic garbage truck is a motor vehicle, which in the garbage disposal is used to collect waste from homes and commercial or industrial plants and transport to a transfer station or a screening or treatment plant. To this end, the automatic garbage truck on the chassis of a truck a structure of a device for loading, the so-called. Bed there, and a cargo hold. For better utilization of the cargo space of the waste is often compacted in the garbage vehicle. With automatic garbage trucks different types will be picked up and transported by waste and recyclables. These vehicles are equipped with appropriate discharge and charging devices that are aligned on the one hand on the container collection and the collection of loose waste, in particular bulky waste on the other hand, and of recyclable materials. automatic garbage trucks as rear loader with Rotopress system consist of a large rotating drum (up to 15 revolutions per minute), which is usually covered with a characteristic ribbed, rounded up construction for noise reduction. Sometimes the cover is removed for weight reduction, so that the drum is freely visible. For emptying of smaller bins (MGB to 360 liters) automatic garbage trucks have been developed with side loader, in which the driver usually sits right in order to control the spread of the dustbins better. The containers are emptied by side loader over a short distance in the bed higher ground. For emptying the refuse container, excluding the driver, no other employees more is necessary, however, the container must be provided and retrieved by the clients. It allows to load quickly, then release a discharge or place of incineration, all kinds of garbage and waste. This truck can be used for a long time and be cleaned every day without deteriorating. The refuse collection vehicles are often equipped with a rotor mill that fragments and compresses the garbage. Some recent versions of those automatic garbage trucks are built so that beings used by That a single individual; the driver which directs itself articulated arm from the cab. The buckets are trucks suitable for the recovery of household waste. They come with an auto recovery system adapted to the tank. The refuse collection is adapted by the manufacturer on the truck chassis. They are found often on chassis cab Renault with models Midlum, Premium, but manufacturers IVECO (based Eurotech), MAN, Scania, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo are also present. It can also function to compress waste for greater storage capacity. Are quite common in urban areas. Coarse dirt can be picked up with a truck with a crane (clip), or with a closed vehicle with a press mechanism. The latter option requires the waste to almost always be manually thrown into the truck. Some automatic garbage trucks are suitable for the separate collection of "gray" waste (non-recyclable or non-compostable material) and biodegradable waste. The truck is emptied via a valve at the rear, rear loaders in the whole loading device is tilted upward. Some vehicles can tip over, while others have a sliding to push the debris to the rear out. What these automatic garbage trucks have in common is that there is in view of the emissions. As a result, the new automatic garbage trucks less harmful to the environment. Also, hybrid automatic garbage trucks are becoming increasingly important. They produce less noise and cause less nuisance when early morning the garbage is collected. Use the automatic garbage trucks from 15 to 30% less fuel. Finally hybrid automatic garbage trucks emit 20% less CO 2 in. Thank you for supporting the creative commons movement !!
