Reduce flat tires when driving on landfill roads...

Reduce flat tire costs and pick up metal debris with a magnetic sweeper.

The price of a flat tire...

Landfill debris problems are perhaps the largest of any applications. It’s not hard to imagine how roads leading to landfills and the landfill roads and scales are covered in debris such as construction debris, wires, old roof shingles and nails, screws etc.

The largest problem presented by this debris are the flat tires it causes on trucks delivering garbage to the landfill and the vehicles of the landfill itself. The large garbage trucks have many wheels and they are expensive to repair and in the process trucks experience downtime and schedule disruptions. Most of the time these big tires don’t go flat immediately, they get damaged at the landfill and go flat or need fixing later.

Most landfills have to repair tires at least several times a week on their own tires, let alone tire repairs that landfill visitors get that the landfill may never know about or bear the cost for.

Given this situation, the metal debris problem at landfills is considered high and the need for controlling it is high due to the high cost of damaged tires.

Flat Tire Cost Savings Analysis

Flat Tire Cost Savings Analysis

For a detailed flat tire cost savings analysis and payback period.

Picking metal debris is a good thing for business..

The cost of flat tires are real and borne by real people and real businesses and are a huge unnecessary waste and cost that can be prevented with a simple tool… a magnetic sweeper.

Even the costs that are borne by the landfills for tire repairs are enough to allow a very quick payback period on the purchase of a magnetic sweeper.

It may not seem like a dump or landfill needs to think about customer satisfaction or about flat tires that visitors experience while using the landfill, but this should indeed be the case. Businesses and individuals using the landfill are the landfill’s customers and landfill customers clearly have an expectation and need to use the landfill without getting tire damage.
