Avac has partnered with the MariMatic Corporation of Finland to offer a range of vacuum solid waste collection solutions in Australia and New Zealand.
Solid Waste Collection Systems utilise vacuum pressure for the collection and conveyance of solid waste through a piping network. They consist of three main components: a waste collection station, a piping network and waste collection inlets. Users simply deposit waste into the inlets which is then sucked through the piping network to the waste collection station for disposal.
The use of this technology eliminates overflowing rubbish bins and all the associated health risks to patrons and staff. Waste is whisked away to the central service area and automatically deposited into compacting containers ready for removal from the site.
The risks of injury to both patrons and staff of either slips or falls due to overflowing rubbish bins is eliminated, as well as the risks particularly to staff, of handing potentially dangerous elements which could result in needle stick injuries or the like during the handling of rubbish and the cleaning of hundreds of rubbish bins.
This automated collection technology results in significant staff cost reductions stemming from the elimination of staff needed to collect, move, empty, clean and relocate hundreds of rubbish bins.
Both the costs and risks associated with ensuring protection of the environment stemming from the handling and particularly the cleaning of hundreds of rubbish bins, is effectively mitigated by the use of the centralised collection and transportation technology.
This technology allows for the collection and automated transfer of different waste steams within the same facility…eg convention/exhibition facilities typically include significant food prep zones…the organic wastes from these zones can be also collected and transported automatically, using the primary system infrastructure, but via a separate piping network to different compacting containers ready for off-site removal.
