Recycling, Landfill and Trash to Energy Noise Control:
Some examples of facility types and sources of sound where we have provided acoustical consulting services.





Recycling Centers Can Be Loud
Saving our earth's resources. Everyone agrees that recycling of paper, plastic, cans and glass bottles is good for the environment but it can get noisy if abatement is not considered.  Just think about how much noise is generated on garbage pickup days when your single bin of recyclables hits the truck.  Now imagine the sound when a large truck dumps its full load at the recycling center.  We've measured and created models of the impact sounds made from these sources and have used this data for developing noise abatement strategies, such as placement of sound barrier walls or building designs, to keep it quiet for the neighbors.



Landfill Noise Control
We all generate it, need to get rid of it, but... New landfills and expansions of existing ones are overwhelmingly opposed by residents in most communities.  Noise is always a major concern of residents near them.  Generally speaking, however, with proper consideration for truck traffic within the landfill and strategic placement of berms near the operating cells, sound generated by landfill operations can be controlled to acceptable levels within the community.   



Trash To Energy Power Plant Noise
A solution for two issues.  Waste elimination and electric power: Perhaps one of the best solutions to help minimize landfill waste while also serving as fuel for generating electricity.  This type of facility has noise sources similar to both landfill operations and power plants.  Careful noise abatement designs can be utilized to help keep these plants in harmony with the community.
