Modulo Recycle

Modular construction

Modulo concrete modules that form the base of the recycling facility including finished bathroom/bathrooms and meeting room/ education /room were installed within 5 days.

Recycling and a creative studio for teaching

Under the 9.8 ft high modules a lot of space was provided recycling activities. In addition an insulated, heated and creative studio for educational and creative purposes.

Shutes

The elevated platform includes 6 shutes for various materials, which are then collected under the platform. Under the elevated platform: roto compactors for compression of cardboard, paper and foil plastic.

Architecture

Älta Kretsloppscentral is designed by the architects Fritz Halvorsen and Charlotte Ryberg, with the purpose of having a modern recycled pit that connects beautifully with the surrounding pine forest

Description

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.

About Ludvika

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
  • Signs
  • 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.

A new approach to recycling depots

The waste and recycling depot is a fixture of Canadian waste man-agement. Depots come in all shapes and sizes, from a few bins scat-tered around a muddy yard to large above-grade saw-tooth design facilities. They offer residents the ability to dispose of recyclables and wastes directly into bins. In most cases the types of recyclables that can be dropped off are much broader than what can be left at the curb, and can capture a significant amount of recyclable materials.

In Canada, depots tend to be the mainstay of smaller municipalities that, in some cases, don’t have curbside collection. However, they’re also used by larger municipalities to provide residents a place to bring materials in between collection days, as well as handle recyclables for which there are no curbside programs.

All current depots are designed as one-of-a-kind systems that incur the costs of site-specific engineering and construction, commensurate with size and sophistication.

Modulo-Béton, of France, has developed the patented Modulo Centre, modular depots using pre-cast concrete building pieces that can be assembled to build above-grade depots.

Remember playing with Lego as a kid, putting together modular pieces, limited only by your imagination? The Modulo-Béton offers the

Waste Recycling Center

typically made from asphalt or concrete. Once the base is completed, the assembly of the depot begins, which can typically be accomplished between two and five days. With a few final finishing touches such as railings and splash guards, the depot is ready to operate. The client can add options such as heated floors.

The depots, which can be suitable for small or large municipalities, are modular and can be expanded and changed as required to accom-modate additional recycling streams, or even picked up and moved to another location. The Modulo Centre allows flexibility that other fixed systems do not allow.

Installations

Within just six years of being launched, more than 200 of these facilities have been constructed, mostly throughout Europe (and more recently in Africa and Asia). Ideally they’re built close to residential areas to stimulate recycling.

A 2012 Dutch government document on how to recycle 65 per cent of household waste recognized that a well laid out and organized re-cycling depot is critical in attracting a variety of recyclables for which curbside programs are inefficient.

 

In Lelystad, a city of about 70,000 in the Netherlands, the old re-

same opportunity, on grander (and grown up) scale.

The key blocks or modular building pieces are 3 x 4 metres and 3 x 3 metres with heights ranging from 90 cm to 300 cm. The pieces include two walls and a flat top surface (essentially creating a concrete table). Each block is like an engineered “macro” waiting to be assembled into whatever configuration. They can be laid end-to-end and side-to-side to form the raised driving surface and platform of the depot. Ramps are used to allow vehicles to get to the platform. They can be assembled in the configuration that suits the site and municipal needs. They can also be fitted with heated driving surfaces as may be required in our cold climate and safety fencing.

Because the building blocks are built from load-bearing reinforced (and locally manufactured) concrete, it provides a unique and critical advantage over other above-grade depots. The space below the main platform is entirely usable. Its use is also only limited by one’s imagina-tion: consider office space, equipment and recyclables storage. It can eliminate the need for outbuildings.

To build a depot the customer develops a design and footprint for the depot. Because the units have no subsurface foundations, only ground works are typically required for drainage and surfacing. The base is

The Modulo Béton centres allow a rapid flow-through of vehicles and also improves the ease of dumping various recoverable materials into bins.

cycling depot was replaced with a new 22-container-bay Modulo Béton facility in 2010. Over a number of weeks the old depot was dismantled and the groundwork for the new facility completed.

The upgraded depot design results in a more rapid flow-through of vehicles and also improves the ease of dumping various recoverable ma-terials into bins. As the author’s cousin (and Lelystad resident) notes, it’s a “handy place” to leave all manner of separated recyclables. The key advantages of the Lelystad facility are: easy to access and use; better sorting of recyclables; improved cost control (from better screening of incoming waste to prevent the receipt of unauthorized commercial and out-of-town waste — residents can get a pass to enter the facility.

In Canada, Scotiabank is supporting the lease of these facilities, soft costs included. Modulo has recently sold its first system in Canada to EastForest Homes, a large residential developer and home builder in Kitchener, Ontario, for one of its construction sites. A completion of the development project, the depot can be moved for use at the next development site, making it an asset rather than a liability that needs to be cleaned up.

Recycling Centre Permits

Household Waste Recycling Centre permits are issued to help stop illegal disposal of trade waste along with other issues. The scheme is designed to reduce congestion, improve health and safety and increase recycling.

Permits are available free of charge for Nottinghamshire households wishing to deposit household waste and small amounts of construction waste from their own home.

Residents wishing to use a company van, pick-up or a company car with a trailer will be required to provide a copy of their company insurance and a company letter (as evidence that you are permitted to use the vehicle for personal use) and a copy of a utility bill dated within the last six months (as evidence of residency).

You can now apply for a van, pick-up or trailer permit online. If you do not have internet access, you can call the Customer Service Centre or visit the Customer Service Points where an advisor will use the online service to input your details on your behalf.

Community Repaint Scheme

Paint tins should never be thrown out with regular rubbish. Unless the tins are empty or contain only solid paint. Liquid paint can cause problems when it mixes with other rubbish and can spill onto roads.

The Community Repaint Scheme offers a solution. Bring your old paint tins to Newark HWRC, which has a permanent facility for repaint, where they will be sorted to see what can be reused. The paint will then be donated to a charity or community group for re use.

Community Waste Management & Recycling Center

Voluntary groups can get paint for free through this scheme once they have registered Community Repaint Scheme (PDF File, 55kb)

Tins which can’t be used are sent for specialist treatment and the metal or plastic containers are recycled where possible.

Paint Open Evenings

Free reusable paint tins are on offer at special monthly open evening. The tins are available to Nottinghamshire residents only. Normal permitting requirements apply if you use a van, pick-up or car-towed trailer.

Tins on offer are at least half full and have been checked by site staff. Colour and type can not be guaranteed but it is all free of charge. There is no limit to how many tins can be taken but a ‘fair share’ policy may come into effect when the dates are fully booked.
