Chris Gustin (L) of Republic Services and Andy Donovan of Spectra I.S. go over how to maximize the space in a landfill using a GPS Rover System. The Cat 836H landfill compactor, equipped with the GPS device, sends feedback of the work it is currently doing to the base station. Stanly Community College provided its Cat simulators to the event.


Carolina CAT hosted a Landfill Technology Demo Day Nov. 16 at the Uwharrie Environmental Landfill in Mount Gillead, N.C.

The event was held to introduce new ideas and solutions in landfill management, such as maximizing compaction, improving air space and bringing more life to the landfill with Caterpillar’s computer-aided earthmoving system.

Several of the Cat 836H and D9T machines used at the landfill are equipped with the system. Other landfill operators attended the event to learn how to adopt the successful practices used at the Uwharrie Landfill.
