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.
