The future goal of waste management is zero waste being deposited into landfills. With an eye toward that future, New Way® leads the industry with the introduction of the first auger-driven organics collection truck in North America, the ROTO PAC®.
Organics on Monday, municipal solid waste (MSW) on Tuesday. Gone are the days of maintaining separate trucks to meet a community’s waste management needs. As the first refuse truck that works as equally well with MSW as it does with organics refuse collection, the dual purpose ROTO PAC® is designed for operational flexibility.
The ROTO PAC®‘s self-cleaning auger not only more efficiently compacts organic materials, such as grass clipping and food waste, but will automatically reverse in the event of a jam. The 23,000 lbs of auger torque makes quick work of compaction and self-cleaning, eliminating down time to clean out behind the packer RAM. The automated arm has a 12-foot reach and can easily manage up to 500 lbs at maximum extension.
Add to that a 27 yd³ body, the highest legal payload in the industry of 25,000 lbs, reduced cylinder maintenance because of the auger and a liquid-tight hopper up to 40 inches high, and you have the most innovative, adaptable and futuristic refuse truck available on the market today.
