Recycling Site in Als Denmark
The recycling site in Als was the first modular solution in Denmark and was supplied by Modulo concrete. The recycling site, which was officially opened in July 2011, is located in Als and is run by I / S Joint Incineration in Hobro.
The site consists of 153 modules (including ramps) and has a length of 206.6 ft and a width of 104.9 ft There are a total of 25 fractions where the 20 fractions are located around the Modulo concrete solution.
Both offices and HHW buildings are located on the modules, from which the staff has a good overview of the entire space. The modules are located on a flat paved pad with a 2% slope of approx…
In addition to the 153 modules, Modulo concrete has delivered fences, bin strike protection, container guiding rails and doors as part of a complete solution.
The entire assembly took 5 working days. A mobile crane was used for the 3 of the days to set up the modules.
When the citizens arrive at the recycling site, they have the option of either driving directly to the garbage area, which is street level or to drive up on the modular solution in order to dispose of their recyclables.
The modular solution has two ramps: one ramp for driving up and another for driving down the modules. In order to ensure the fastest possible flow of cars, the direction on the modular platform is one way with the possibility of parking near both not against the individual containers.
Modulo has helped us establish a modern elevated recycling platform. Citizens can now dispose of their recyclables into the bins, instead of lifting it up and then trying to throw it into bins with as a result worse bin filling rates and increased costs for hauling!

The solution made it a lot easier for all
I / S Joint Incineration was founded in 1972 and currently serves 46,400 inhabitants. They collect and receive recycled materials and waste from three municipalities: Mariagerfjord, Randers and Rebild. The recyclables are converted in an environmentally friendly way and resold as district heating, compost, recycled concrete, paper, glass, metal, etc.
I / S Joint Incineration operates the waste heat treatment plant in Hobro, the Hobro Commercial Recycling Center, the waste disposal and recycling center in Gunderup and the recycling sites in Hobro, Mariager, Hadsund, Rostrup, Mejlby, and Als.
I / S Joint Incineration is a member of RenoSam, a Danish association of waste companies – and through the various services we deliver to citizens and businesses in the three municipalities all year round, we ensure compliance with current legislation.
In cooperation with Modulo concrete, it has been possible to have our recycling space adapted in a very user-friendly way. Not only is it user-friendly, but it’s also simply become easier to get rid of its garbage and recyclables!
Before, when we did not have an elevated platform, you had to throw the waste over the container edge. Now you can drive your car up a ramp and throw its waste and recyclables directly into the various containers. Modulo concrete has shown that it is possible to establish a large recycling space within a short period and even at a competitive price.
I am sure our modern recycling site will be a role model for future plants in the Nordic region. – Heine Munk, Director I / S Joint Combustion, Hobro
