Ingenio the ingenious underground waste 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.
