Recycling cart manufacturer Meese Orbitron Dunne Co. of Ashtabula, Ohio, (www.recycleosaurus.com), has invested in multiple tools for its best-selling 50P-16 recycling collection cart and spread them across the continent at its West Coast, Midwest and East Coast facilities. Permitting manufacturing to be performed as close to the customer’s facility as possible, the triplicate tooling ensures the ever-present utility trucks are produced quickly and delivered at the lowest possible freight cost. Savings on a recycle cart delivery to a Midwest public works department tops 50 per cent by manufacturing the trucks in the company’s Madison, Ind. facility rather than in New Jersey or California, according to a review of freight rates conducted by the company.
“We’ve controlled our manufacturing costs and kept our pricing stable but in some cases, freight has increased on a per unit basis by 30 to 50 percent on top of declines in paper and scrap metal prices,” says Bob Dunne president of MOD. “We understand the pressure on the recycling companies and program coordinators and have committed to maintaining the affordability of our carts, trucks and containers to help keep recycling programs operating.”
The MOD multiple tooling program covers the 50P-16 collection cart and several optional accessories as well as the 50P-16S Scrapasaurus, a clever variation fitted with fork tubes for secure lifting, rotating and dumping by forklift. Secure covers, locks, paper grade dividers and custom colours and graphics are among the custom selections and accessories available. Visitwww.recycleosaurus.com
