Marathon Equipment, a Dover Co., based in Vernon, Alabama, and Organix Solutions, based in Maple Grove, Minnesota, have announced the installation of a Waste Robotics bag-sorting robot at Randy's Sanitation, Minneapolis. This system has been customized to fully automate the company’s organics diversion sort line.

"We are thrilled to work with a leading-edge company such as Waste Robotics to offer our clients a truly competitive and economical solution for organics diversion," says Jim Wollschlager, Organix Solutions’ CEO.
The new and emerging Waste Robotics company, based in Quebec City, Quebec, develops and builds robotic solutions for the waste industry.

"Working with industry leaders such as Marathon and Organix Solutions helps us design better and more innovative products to fulfill today's market needs," says Eric Camirand, chief technology officer of Waste Robotics.

"Waste Robotics is integrating state-of-the-art technologies to achieve remarkable organic waste handling applications that we could only dream of just a few years back," says Geoff Apthorp, Marathon’s vice president of business development and engineering. “Marathon is pleased to be working with Waste Robotics and Organix to advance our collective vision of value-added diversion of organic waste from landfill with new-to-world technologies such as this.”
