J&S Walker Manufacturing and Mike Morris of Days Creek were granted a patent on November 7th for a log yard waste separation system. The system, called The Walker Derocker, has been running at C&D Lumber in Riddle for the last four years. It’s purpose is to separate the waste from operating in a unpaved logging yard into products that could be reused or sold.
The machine takes the waste and divides them into fine soil, large rocks, small rocks, and leftover bark. It can process 5,000 cubic yards of waste into reusable products in about 18 days.
