New year, new waste collecting systems? Right now, architects, construction companies and housing companies are busy making plans for summer projects. Why should building designers or real estate professionals be interested in waste management solutions?
The work of the garbage truck driver is considered a tough job, where the full waste bins are pulled manually to the truck and empty bins are put back into place. Bin transfer is often hampered by thresholds, uneven surfaces and winter snow.
Recycling of plastics is worthwhile, as recycling can supply the raw material to save up to 85% of the energy that new plastic would consume in oil refining. Recycled plastics are the simplest way to make new plastics and by more recycling of plastic products, fewer new oil wells need to be drilled for plastic production.
