  • The Fall issue of Waste Age Product News listed incorrect information for Ameri-Kart on page 6. Waste Age regrets the error. The product description should have read:

The Whisper Series carts from Ameri-Kart, Akron, Ohio, are roto-molded in linear, low-density polyethylene and have capacities from two to six yards. Features include ⅜-inch-thick walls, stainless steel fasteners, molded pocket liners and bottom cross ribbing.


  • Wastequip Inc., Cleveland, has purchased certain assets of Wooster, Ohio-based Hi-Rise Recycling Companies Inc.


  • “Paper Recovery Up,” a story in the Tip Off section of August's Waste Age, mistakenly reported the commodity prices for plastic and aluminum recyclables. Plastic and aluminum prices are in cents per pound instead of dollars per ton. Waste Age regrets the error.
