News Type: Release article about the new Modulo HWRC in Bristol
The challenge was to realize a highly convenient and efficient HWRC for around 250.000 citizens with the possibility to place a large number of containers/skips (17) on a relatively small terrain that also guaranteed easy and safe handling of the containers. Other requirements were the construction of a strong bay for garden waste and wood at the platform to avoid double handling and the realization of a re-use shop.
Bristol Waste Company and the Modulo team created a platform with skips mostly located at one side of the platform to keep heavy traffic separated from the residents allowing for easy and safe handling. The platform was equipped with an extension at the other side for the positioning of extra skips. Modulo designed special triangle ramp blocks to be able to use single ramps instead of double ramps to save space and reduce costs. A strong double bay of concrete blocks with chamfered top blocks for garden waste and wood was also positioned at the platform.
