12:15 - 12:45
- How many times have you been woken up by the noise of waste collection trucks early in the morning? Or are you irritated by how fast they drive through your district and the dangers they pose to other road users and pedestrians?
- It’s perfectly possible to create a city where conventional waste collection trucks become almost obsolete. A city with less noise, less traffic and lower emissions.
- When a development uses a pneumatic waste management system, traffic decreases by 90%. For example, in a typical residential district with 3,500 apartments, waste collection trucks only need to spend 177 hours per year removing waste from the Envac collection station. This compares to 3,718 hours per year when the trucks have to collect waste from each individual building as they do in a conventional waste collection system.
