Truck Weighing Scale Security upgraded for Vic landfill site
23/07/2012 - Truck Weighing Scale Security was recently upgraded at a landfill site in Victoria to prevent vehicles from inadvertently exiting the site without paying.
Supplied by Ultrahawke in Melbourne, the Benalla Landfill Site is regularly operated by a single operator responsible for both the weighing scale and dozer operation.
Security upgrades made to the truck weighing scale included the installation of traffic lights and a boom gate to prevent loaded trucks from entering the site without first attaining a weight ticket. The boom gate also restricts vehicles from exiting the site without weighing out over the weighing scale.
The difference between the Weigh In and Weigh Out weight tickers from the truck weigh scale is used to calculate dumping charges.
To enable the weigh scales operator to confirm the type of waste being brought to the landfill site, a CCTV camera was mounted overhead to display an image of the vehicle's contents on a monitor.
The same CCTV camera also captures images of the truck/trailer registration plates as they exit the truck weighing scale.
