On the innovative front, we are about to open our own tire recycling facility. We used to send 60,000 tires to the dump. Now, we will repurpose those tires into mulch, outdoor pavement and other things that beautify the area.

There was also some info regarding their growth, but this to me is more interesting. I tried to look online, but I couldn't find anything about it. This sounds like an amazingly fantastic idea that will help the environment. This is coming from Darrel Hopkins, controller and director of leasing, according to Springfield Business Journal. I hope they come through with this, because it can do a lot of good.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

EPU:

Electric Auxiliary Power Units

Electric APUs have started gaining acceptance. These electric APUs use battery packs instead of the diesel engine on traditional APUs as a source of power. The APU's battery pack is charged when the truck is in motion. When the truck is idle, the stored energy in the battery pack is then used to power an air conditioner, heater, and other devices

I delivered the tire shredding machines that will be used at Prime. They invested over 1/2 million bucks in the technology.

I did basic training at Fort Leonard Wood, and we had pits with shredded/diced up tires...great way to reuse them even though at the time all I wanted to do was graduate lol.

The two pictures are from a landscaping project my neighbors did last weekend. They used the shredded tire mulch and I really like the stuff. Comes in several colors and flavors.
