Wolf Material Handling Systems designs, engineers and manufactures systems and equipment for municipal solid waste (MSW).
Americans generate more garbage any other country in the world. Estimates range from 4 to 7 pounds generated per day by each American. Over 50% of this waste comes from residential garbage while the rest comes from commercial trade, manufacturing, and retail operations. Just over 30% of US garbage is recycled each year. Much of the MSW can be recycled or reused for power, fuel, chemicals and products.
