Cannabis waste regulations

Methods for Meeting Cannabis Laws By State

Fields of cannabis plants are emerging in eight states where the sale and production of the crop are now legal. Alaska, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, Oregon and Washington now regulate marijuana as a legal crop. As marijuana becomes legal across the country, it is demonstrating a great ability to benefit state economies.

Cannabis is expected to be recognized as a top-valued crop in California. Farm data research companies estimate that indoor cannabis production could be nearly 9,000 times more productive than corn production on a dollar scale. While there is tremendous value in the newly legal crop, states are quickly putting regulations in place to ensure the proper handling of marijuana waste. With the legalization of marijuana, and a booming cannabis industry, comes new questions concerning the environmental impact of recreational marijuana growers and processors. With no prior precedent, these eight states are working with marijuana growers and processors to create regulations to manage water quality, water resources and waste management processes associated with marijuana cultivation.

Marijuana growers and processors are seeking efficient, high-quality methods for meeting the new state regulations. Swapping out cumbersome equipment, like wood chippers, for powerful grinders is just one way they can keep their operations productive while meeting waste disposal requirements.

With grinding capabilities both indoors and outdoors, the Monster Industrial shredder easily chews up wet or dry marijuana waste, including large root balls. Powered by quiet, electric motors, it transmits zero gas and exhaust fumes. The shredder runs at a low rpm, which keeps noise levels down. The double row of sharp, steel cutters, combined with the high torque of the grinders, allows processors to mix all manner of tough material with the marijuana waste to ensure it meets the 51 percent non-marijuana waste by volume guidelines. This allows them to skip the mixing step by jointly grinding the marijuana waste and non-marijuana waste. Watch this video to see it in action!!

Troy Heimerl

SANTA ANA, Calif. — JWC Environmental is pleased to announce that Troy Heimerl has been promoted to Director of North American Municipal Sales. This newly created position will allow the company to make further investments in serving its customers while supporting the needs of its world-class partner network.

Mr. Heimerl exhibits the industry passion and leadership that our business was based on, and he has been an encouraging and motivating mentor to his team during his tenure at JWC,” says Greg Guard, VP Sales for JWC Environmental. “This role brings Troy’s passion to our partners and customers on a national scale, and gives our dedicated partner network a more streamlined channel for communication.”

Heimerl brings over 20 years of wastewater industry experience to this role. Before becoming Midwest Regional Sales Manager for JWC, he spent 10 years as a manufacturer’s representative for Quality Flow Systems, and another 10 years with Electric Pump primarily covering the Minnesota and South Dakota municipal markets.

“This is an especially exciting time in the history of our company,” explains Guard. “Our recent acquisition of IPEC Consultants Ltd. has allowed us to expand our successful screenings products to a larger audience. Our newest generation of Wipes Ready Muffin Monster® grinders is more effective and reliable at taking on tough debris than ever before. We’re very positive that these enhanced product offerings, along with our robust sales network, will allow us to better partner with our customers for their long-term needs”.


What the Settlement Between FTC and Nice-Pak Means for Wipes

   |   By  |  0 Comments

FTC Seal

Advertising Claims Must Be Substantiated

The California Water Environment Association recently reported on the agreed settlement between FTC and Nice-Pak regarding flushable wipes labeling. According to the article and the official FTC website, Nice-Pak has agreed to stop advertising moist toilet tissue as flushable unless it can substantiate that the product is safe to flush. Jessica Rich, the director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection, said the following in regard to the suit:

“The evidence didn’t back up Nice-Pak’s claim that their wipes were safe to flush. If you claim a product is flushable, it needs to flush in the real world, without clogging household plumbing or sewer and septic systems.”

The question of whether this will positively impact utilities remains to be seen, and some experts think it will make little difference. According to a recent blog post from the NACWA, the only thing that’s really going to make a difference here is a substantial change in consumer behavior:

“Too many people are flushing baby wipes and other types of wipes that are super strong and not designed to break down at all in a sewer system. This problem can only be solved with better product labeling and consumer education.”

We agree with the NACWA, and believe product labeling and consumer education are key elements in the fight against wipes. However, the third piece to solving this wipes crisis lies in utilizing technology that fully breaks down this tough material in the waste stream, before it can reach pumps.
