Underground Waste Management System

Ingenio the ingenious underground waste collection

ingenio underground waste bin collection

MAXIMUM VOLUME, MINIMUM SPACE

Like the tip of an iceberg the ingenio system stores up to 5 metres cubed of waste underground. With a variety of crane hooks at the top along with attractive pedestrial platforms the bins become a welcome addition to the urban space. With fewer collections needed traffic is reduced and one person can efficiently collect several units during the day.

A recent installation at Milton Keynes was photographed showing the different stages.

Stage 1 the bases/troughs for the underground bins are delivered to site.

Stage 2 the concrete sleeves are lowerd into the ground and fixed.

Stage 3 the actual bin bases are delivered ready to be lowerd into the bases shown above.

The final stage is the top and then the underground waste bins are ready for use. In Milton Keynes the site is being used for glass recycling though the Ingenio system has 5 different tops and inserts and a wide range of WRAPS to suit.

INGENIO G5, new generation: the perfect solution for amounts of waste of 3–5 m³. While the refuse is stored underground, only a minimum surface area is required above ground. Single operator can operate the system and due to the larger collection storage the collections can be less frequent.

Lockers

Lockers at school or work offer a personal space for your belongings as well a bit of security. Merlin has been supplying a wide range of lockers for over 25 years and they have updated all of the ranges with better images and specifications. Please view some of the different styles below.

CAN SCHOOL LOCKERS REDUCE A FIRE RISK?

‘Cloakrooms should not form part of or be open to circulation spaces… Lockers made from materials of limited combustibility should be provided’ 

(Building Bulleting 100: Design for fire safety in schools)

School Lockers

This advice from The Department of Education applies to all new school builds.
Older buildings and those with growing pressure on space can’t always accommodate separate cloakrooms.

So what can schools do to minimise their risk?

If cloakrooms can’t be moved from corridors a school will need to install
lockers to store clothing and personal items, to prevent this fire risk.

Lockers help protect combustible materials which slow the progress of a fire.

They have added the benefit of discouraging vandalism and arson, which are responsible for around half of all school-time fires.

Express Steel Lockers

You can now get our most popular lockers delivered in 5 working days

which ties in perfectly for the fast-approaching end of the school year.
