Description

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 oiut 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 their 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 tempory 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 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 ficilitating > 20 different recyclables fractions. In addition the site facilitatesto receive garden waste, construction waste and included containers which can be clised 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. Fore 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 electricity 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 their 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. ”
