Understanding Traffic Flow Patterns at the Landfill

DSC_1115DSC_0957


It can get rather busy within the landfill site, however there is a clear method and process that works to keep employees and customers safe, and free from accidents and injuries. 


A few do’s and don’ts:

  • When a dozer operator makes a push, the operator must drive back to the exit and make another push – please do not back in until the dozer comes back out first.
  • Do not dump on another pile of trash. Take an empty spot and avoid double stacking.
  • Do allow the dozer operator room to work and dump away from were the dozer is working. This will help to avoid collisions.
  • Do make sure all turnbuckles and tarps are open and removed before dumping. This helps to prevent stuck loads and dig outs.
  • After dumping, clean debris off at the tipping floor and not out away from the working face.
  • Do back between the large equipment tires.
  • Do follow the signs for residents, hand unloads and pull offs.
