The world’s largest modular recycling site
Ludvika municipality decided in 2015 to upgrade their existing recycling site Björnhyttan to a larger and more modern recycling site. Bjornhyttan has approx. 26,000 citizens. Modulo supplied and installed a 208 blocks modular solution. This is the biggest modular solution to date in both the Nordic region and the rest of the world.. The Modulo system is installed on Björnhyttans existing asphalt pad. The solution does not require foundation under the modules. The solution consists of 184 platform and 24 ramp modules. The platform accomodates is 22 bins. The modules are at a height of 7.87 ft, so the space under the deck can be fully utilized. Unlike traditional elevated deck solutions, the Modulo modular platform can be utilized 200%.: on top of the deck as well as under the deck.
Ludvika municipality is located in Dalarna County. The County is growing and today has approx. 26,000 residents. Ludvika city is the third largest city in Dalarna, and has approx. 14,500 residents. Waste and recycling is handled by Björnhyttan waste center.
Additional accessories are provided:
- Edge beams: The edge beams are on the outside of the module solution as a safety.
- Container guiding rails to protect the concrete modules from bin strikes
- Galvanized railings
- Galvanized doors
- Heat traced ramps
Modulo concrete is a modular and future-proof solution. The existing solution can be expanded very easily and simply with new modules and thus accomodating additional fractions.
The old recycling site was far too small, and Modulo was clearly the best option when we noticed that the it could be easily installed at the existing pad. The system does not require footings
We are really excited about the new recycling facility. No queuing anymore, improved logistics, and the working environment for our employees is now top – everything is happening at a calmer pace. ” And happy residents as well.
