Two days! That is how long it took to install this Modulo solution in Papendrecht, The Netherlands.
Modulo recently completed its new residential and small businesses drop off solution/ recycling center for Paderborn Germany. Immediately after installation, residents started to use the facility. Modulo was involved from start to finish as well as maintenance. Modulo provided consultancy services including initial design, final design production, installation, and maintenance services.
The initial design services included a number of alternative solutions. All parties involved, including City Staff, Architect, and Modulo worked closely together in order to meet timelines.
The installation of the Modulo system ( within 5 days) allowed the Contractor to meet his targets easily. As a result, the project was executed on time and on budget.
The city officials very much wanted to integrate the Modulo solution with existing on-site activities, which have continued to increase as a result of continuing changing management practices as well as continuing changes in environmental regulations, requiring more and more recyclable materials to be received and handled.
The conventional site allowed only for a reduced, fixed number of activities/ recyclable materials, resulting in queuing, lengthy waiting times for the residents and small businesses.
The Municipality of Sittard-Geleen was seeking a total concept solution to deal with its HHW. Before it decided to build a permanent Household Hazardous Waste facility, HHW was collected through event days and through the use of Household Hazardous Waste collection vehicles. Sittard-Geleen decided to build a Modular Household Hazardous Waste facility. Modulo established 3 fire resistant compartments with one central receiving/working area.
The site is in compliance with all European and Dutch Regulations (Guidelines for Environmental Protection Measures and Chemical Waste Storage, National and International Fire Codes). It has all fire safety features, including 3 hours fire rated walls, fire rated self closing doors, spill containment with self –contained sumps, chemical resistant removable gratings, certified electrical, electrical center connections, outlets, emergency eye/face wash station, lockable doors, emergency lights, exterior lighting, insulation, heating and temperature control, ventilation, shelves, access into each compartment, warranty.
Modulo was selected for the new environmental park in Tromsø. Tromsø’s population consists of approx. 71,500 registered residents. Including students, there are approximately 75,000 people in the municipality. There are approx. 29,000 households, each of whom receives a waste card with 6 entrees per. year. Remiks receives approx. 10,000 tonnes of waste a year. As it is growing Remiks there is a need to expand existing recycling sites. Tromsø’s former recycling facility was closed at the end of 2013. The site was old and worn out and had insufficient capacity. During the summer it was very common that there were long waiting lines and full containers. Throughout the winter 2013/2014, Remiks uses its recycling facility at the Ringvegen headquarters for both business and private customers. However, this site did not have the capacity to handle Tromsø’s waste during the summer period, and a new solution, therefore, was necessary. Remiks has looked at a number of alternative sites and site solutions and it was decided to go with a site location which ultimately could happen to be a temporary site. The site is located in the current ‘Miljøparken’, where Remiks already has other activities.
The Modulo site was implemented in two phases; This to keep it open while under construction as well as to spread costs over 2 years. Remiks also noticed this allowed them to gain more experience and to make adjustments as needed. During the first phase a100 modules Modulo solution was installed with a module height of 2.4 m facilitating 12 bins. The ramps are located at each end of the solution, and the traffic is unidirectional. The plan is to adapt the area under the modules various purposes, such as storage of recyclables, tools, etc. The next phase included expansion with 80 modules in 2015 to make it longer and wider and facilitating > 20 different recyclables fractions. In addition, the site facilitates receiving garden waste, construction waste, and included containers that can be closed to protect the more valuable recyclables.
We have only received positive feedback from both employees and users!
We wanted a solution with great flexibility. During the initial phase, we were contacted by Modulo Concrete, and after hearing more about their modular solution, we quickly became convinced that this was the right solution for us.
It was very crucial for us to be able to establish a new and user-friendly recycling space in a relatively short period of time. For this site, from signing the agreement to installation completed it took just 12 weeks!
Furthermore, it was very crucial for us to get a very flexible solution, as we are planning to expand over the coming few years. The flexibility of this Modulo system makes it easier to allocate/spread costs over your years. Eg. we are not obliged to immediately do electrical work, water, and sewer. This can be done on an as-needed way. Last but not least, the price also was very important making up our minds: another good reason for choosing Modulo.
It is very easy to operate the recycling facility, both for users and for employees. It is easy to operate and guide users, and there is a good overview of the entire area.
One of the first days we were actually contacted by the employees at the square, which experienced a problem that the users did not want to leave the recycling center! After they were done dropping off the recyclables they tended to stay, talking, wandering around, and praising the place.
So on our end, and based on the experience we have so far, we can safely recommend a Modulo Concrete solution to others wishing to establish a new recycle space. “

Høje Tåstrup municipality partnering with Vestforbrænding renovated the recycling site in Høje Tåstrup. The recycling site was not meeting today’s requirements, and it was, therefore, decided to make it more user friendly, to establish better participation, and to provide improved facilities.
It was important for the municipality to make the site visit easier to understand for visitors, to establish a better separation and easier access to the different fractions. It was decided the most convenient way establish the goals would be to build a new elevated platform in combination with a modular building for hazardous waste, both being Modulo solutions.
The site was closed in October. Construction work commenced and included ao paving a new larger area for garden waste, sewer, lightning. The elevated Modulo platform was installed on a new slab accommodating 18 bins. Including the new Modulo solution for hazardous waste, the site was able to reopen after only 100 days!
Modulo installed the elevated 18 bins solution as well as the hazardous waste solution. The height of the modules: 3.9 ft. Site elevation differences were used to create a smart solution. Further, safety railings were provided for ramps only. The lower platform in combination with higher bins ensured railings did not need to be installed.
The hazardous waste solution included supply and install 6 modules, doors, windows, sumps, grating, aeration, and point suction solutions.
Kenneth Bøg, Vestforbrænding:
High Tåstrup recycling site needed an upgrade as residents had to use stairs to get rid of waste and recyclables. It was dangerous and resulted in sub-optimal bin filling and higher costs of logistics. Modulo solved those issues.
Modulo understood our needs, and as a result, Modulo was the preferred solution. The entire process from the design phase to completion was what we expected.
Modulo has successfully completed the hazardous waste solutions at Galten Recycling Site, Reno Syd, Denmark. The modules ensure compliance with regulations and ensure safe storage of hazardous waste, facilitating to separate storage for the different hazardous waste classes.
The solution includes automatically closing fire-rated doors, explosion-proof lighting, aeration including point suction for 15 drums, exit doors, exit signs.
The Galten Modulo project includes 6 modules.
At one end of the solution, there is an emergency exit door, which is only served by the space workers. Waste-proof vessels are fitted with mounted electrical windows for collecting hazardous waste.

Nyborg Supply decided to expand its existing recycling facility in Ørbæk. The significant upgrade included ao washrooms an elevated platform.
” When it was apparent we needed to change, Modulo became the preferred supplier. Its modular solutions provide unlimited possibilities to change, adapt, grow. It is simply the best, smartest and most economical solution over the lifetime of these types of projects since it allows for quick changes without a lot of work and you do not have to demolish anything.
We are very excited about a split level solution: it allows our residents to dispose of their recyclables very easily”says waste manager Søren Littrup Kristensen.
The recycling center in Ørbæk services approx. 6,000 citizens a year, and as the space was outdated and the residents and employees were struggling.
In addition to more space and better traction, we were able to separate truck -and other traffic, ensuring improved safety for all working/ visiting the site.
The brand new fully refurbished recycling facility was completed in the summer of 2013 and has created a lighter / better working environment for both visitors and employees.
Employees have improved working conditions in terms of better facilities and heated facilities. “Before we had no heating, no doors in our locker room, which meant we always froze when we were at work. With the new Modulo solution, we were able to heat those facilities we wanted to heat, including in the kitchen, offices and hazardous waste management.
Our space for hazardous waste storage also has dramatically improved. Now we are able to offer citizens better handling of hazardous waste and other recyclables: it is organized, safe, clean and clear.
All in all, we have now got a much more user-friendly and modern recycling space, which has so far accommodated all our wishes and needs for a new recycling facility – and in addition, at a relatively low budget”.
There is always a need for a change, even when it comes to waste management. Modulo was the preferred partner, since their solution, without a doubt, was the most valuable and affordable one! – Søren Littrup Kristensen, waste manager Nyborg Supply, Ørbæk ”
