Recycling Center in Ørbæk, Denmark
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The recycling center in Ørbæk services approx. 6,000 citizens a year, and as the space was outdated and the residents and employees were struggling.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 ”
