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.
Facilities such as university research laboratories have additional waste management issues to resolve, such as having to deal with bio-wastes, as well as the more conventional types of rubbish that they have in common with other high traffic facilities.
The Avac solid waste transfer technology allows for the safe and efficient collection and automated transfer of separate waste streams, thus facilitating the separation of bio-wastes from recyclables and/or from general rubbish.
Most universities and research facilities have on-site food prep zones. This technology not only offers the safe separation of bio-wastes, but also allows the separation of food prep organic wastes from the other waste streams which can be diverted for re-use.
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 during the handling of rubbish and the cleaning of waste receptacles.
This automated collection technology results in significant staff cost reductions stemming from the elimination of staff needed to collect, move, empty, clean and relocate waste receptacles.
