New cameras enhance inspections at WTE facilityNew cameras enhance inspections at WTE facility<div class="ExternalClass2E04D712E8B446AD8A18F189E9E503E5"><p>Metro Vancouver is using closed circuit cameras to enhance banned material inspections at the Waste-to-Energy Facility in Burnaby.</p><p>As of July of this year, closed circuit cameras are being used to inspect loads as they are dumped into the pit. Inspectors view this live video footage, and issue surcharges on the spot if banned materials, such as recyclables, are found in the garbage. Surcharges encourage more recycling as they provide a financial deterrent to keep banned items out of the trash.</p><p>This new system increases the efficiency of disposal ban inspections at the waste-to-energy facility, where previously vehicles unloaded waste onto a concrete deck to be inspected, then a wheel loader pushed the waste into the pit after each inspection. These extra steps were time consuming, resulting in lower inspection rates compared with today. The wheel loader that was used for inspections can now be repurposed for use at another Metro Vancouver facility.</p></div>http://www.metrovancouver.org/metroupdate/PublishingImages/issue37-wtef.jpg2017-11-30T08:00:00ZGP0|#5c5e82e4-401f-43a6-8f66-b0acc99b3d56;L0|#05c5e82e4-401f-43a6-8f66-b0acc99b3d56|Issue 37;GTSet|#d14ffe11-45dc-48fb-8684-ff109cf15a74<div class="ExternalClass5DF9CE8C65FF408EBF9A678EADBD6415"><p>​Metro Vancouver is using closed circuit cameras to enhance banned material inspections at the Waste-to-Energy Facility in Burnaby.
