Hazardous Waste Drop Off Centre

HALSA MILJØTORV IN MELØY, NORWAY

Modulo Recycle

Description

New environmental site for Halsa residents.

Modulo installed the facility in one day.

The Southern Meløy residents live in a remote area. Before the new site was installed, they had to drive between 65 and 100 km to get rid of their waste. This has meant that the waste has in many cases was dumped

The operators at Halsa and Halsa Grendelag contacted Iris to express their desire for the drop off project at Halsa. Within a year after the meeting, Iris decided to build it.

Meløy area has 2500 residents, with Halsa as a natural meeting point.

Arriving at Halsa environment drop off centre residents will enter the site driving onto the ramp to dispose of their residual waste as well as recyclables eg wood, metal, etc. Soil, gravel and stone etc. must be disposed of in bins on the ground.

Moving Towards 50 kg of Residual Waste Per Resident Per Year! The Almere Upcycle Centre Example

Modulo Recycle
The UpcycleCentre/ Upcycling Centre in Almere is symbolic to what needs to be achieved on National level by 2050. Coming from 350 kg of residual waste production per resident annually Almere City is  currently  at 170 kg of residual waste production per resident annually and now moving to 50 kg of residual waste production per resident annually. As a comparison: The average in The Netherlands currently is 490 kg of residual waste annually. This is the first project of its kind showing what really can be done.
This site is representing the future:  Upcycling.

Modulo ws heavily involved in the design, construction of this site.

The Upcycle Centre in Almere includes a symbol. installed at the front of the building. That is a logo made of recycled material representing the logo of Almere  It is all really well thought  through: the roof, the structures, the recycling platform, the use of the materials, offices, stores, the furniture, the flooring, including even the flushing water for toilets.
As an example, the concrete pad is made from eco-granular, recycled materials from demolished buildings eg the Almere swimming pool, the Almere sports arena, etc..
Spaces are rented out to start up companies, using materials dropped off at the recycling centre.
To build the wooden structure around the building, used wood from the swimming pool and trees which were removed in Almere. The bicycle parking lot is made of old car tires. The wall panels are made from old galvanized steel airducts. The roll doors are the ones previously used at the sports arena.
The Modulo system is made from recycled concrete.
The wooden floor is made by a team of persons with a disability. 13,000 pieces of recycled materials is what it took to make this floor. The same team was also involved in the ceiling , which is made is made out of 1,400 empty bottles.They loved to work on it.
Lights, furniture, for everything we focused on circularity. To redo the furniture, leather was used from old furniture.
The Almere Upycling Center recently was published  in  Holland Circulair Hotspot (https://hollandcircularhotspot.nl/en/case/modulo-resource-and-recovery-centres-modular-environmental-waste-depots/) , initiated by the Dutch Government as it is seeking to promote Dutch examplary initiatives in the field of circulair entrepreneurship. It is publishing leading examples eg  Heineken, Plastic Whale, Rotterzwam, DSM-Niaga, Waste2Aromatics, Waste Transformers, carpet manufacturer  Interface and The Great Bubble Barrier.
Circular Drop off centres
Easy to install, expandable, changeable, moveable and  reusable. These are a few remarks in the Circular Hotspot magazine about Modulo. And also very important, the fact that you can use the deck as well as the space underneath the deck. That space an be used for many purposes, eg hazardous waste, storage, maintenance, offices, changing rooms.
Holland Circulair Hotspot also emphasis the process of working with Modulo. It starts with a so called “ Country-City process” involving all relevant parties to combine existing regulations, future regulatory requirements, existing national, regional, local practices and methods with as a result the development of a number of alternative approaches, scenario’s. Each of those scenario’s will be compared, including traffic and queuing simulations as required, resulting in capital and operating budgets for the different solutions.

For the Upcycling facility in Almere potential future regulatory developments have been considered so that the site can be easily adapt if needed. For future sites focus is not only anymore on waste or recyclables  drop off but more and more on receiving of on reusables, raw materials

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.
