Plastic Omnium Environment introduces cutting edge range of waste systems at RWM 2016
Plastic Omnium Environment introduces cutting edge range of waste systems at RWM 2016
RWM, Birmingham NEC, 13-15 September 2016: Plastic Omnium Environment is introducing a range of innovative products this year at RWM, aimed at supporting property developers and local authorities in improving their recycling performance.
• The world leader in manufacturing and supplying high quality waste containerisation products is showcasing M4, the latest addition to its range of underground waste disposal systems at the show in Hall 5, Stand Q100.
• It will also be displaying the new Plastic Omnium Bin-Shelter, with flap and access control option.
M4 is the latest generation underground container developed to further assist communities in achieving their recycling targets. It has been designed to improve the collection of different flows of paper and packaging, glass and also residual waste. The M4 container is available with optional access control technology systems.
The dimensions of the drum doors allow for easy depositing of bags. To improve hygiene, a foot pedal opening system is included, that avoids the need to touch the container with the user’s hands. Accessibility has also been optimised for children and people with reduced mobility.
The M4 pillars are fully interchangeable which allows added flexibility to adjust to the changing needs of community recycling. Placed on a common structure below the ground all the variants can easily be replaced by other pillars: for example a pillar for the collection of residual waste could be replaced with a pillar for dry recyclates.
Collectors will benefit from it being one of the fastest products to empty on the market, while offering guaranteed safety, and reducing the disturbance to local residents.
For maintenance personnel, the terminal’s shape has been designed for quicker and easier access to the various components of the container’s structure, allowing faster servicing and maintenance.
The M4 terminal is fully compliant with the requirements of European Standard EN 13071 (validated on March 23, 2016 by LNE - National Testing Laboratory, an independent body).
Richard Gregg, Managing Director of Plastic Omnium Urban Systems Ltd, the UK subsidiary of Plastic Omnium Environment, says:
“We are delighted to introduce M4, our latest underground waste management product, which will offer many additional benefits to local communities, collectors and maintenance staff, and will be a key factor in improving the local authority’s recycling targets”.
The company is also showcasing the new Plastic Omnium Bin-Shelter with flap and access control option. This shelter allows controlled access by limiting the size of the opening hatch or by access control which can limit users to authorised-users only helping to reduce contamination or use by non-residents. It also stops the bins being moved around to the wrong locations.
The Plastic Omnium Bin-Shelter is robustly made with galvanised metal sheets and is suitable for use with 660L bins. It is not only safe and ergonomic, but also easy to assemble thanks to its interchangeable riveted panels.
The waste-chute flap is made from aluminium alloy and is chosen for its light weight, making handling of the flap easier and improving resistance to rusting. The flaps are available with optional access control systems including electronic bolt, lock and battery.
Installation is straightforward and the bin-shelters are fixed to the ground to meet with the EN 15132 Standards requirements.
Richard Gregg adds: “RWM is an excellent opportunity to renew old acquaintances, make new friends and especially to raise awareness within the industry of Plastic Omnium Environments innovative systems. We look forward to giving a warm welcome to all visitors to our stand.”
PLASTIC OMNIUM URBAN SYSTEMS CHANGES THE LANDSCAPE IN LONDON E3
POPLAR HARCA’S REGENERATION PROJECT WITH PLASTIC OMNIUM URBAN SYSTEMS CHANGES THE LANDSCAPE IN LONDON E3
September 2016. As one of the world’s leading suppliers of underground waste management systems, Plastic Omnium Urban Systems has for many years worked alongside local authorities and communities to improve their environments. And as environmental, financial and aesthetic considerations continue to increase in importance for estate managers, Plastic Omnium Urban System’s products are attracting even greater interest.
Leading the charge in the UK is Poplar Housing and Regeneration Community Association (Poplar HARCA), a housing association based in the heart of East London. Poplar HARCA’s latest regeneration project aimed to transform challenging ex-council stock into places of beauty where people would really choose to live. A proactive, joined-up strategy was developed which encompassed maintenance, management and resident engagement. It also used good design to secure long term improvements in environmental quality by revolutionising refuse arrangements to achieve sustainability targets whilst eradicating fires, fly-tipping and vermin in communal areas.
Waste management was an important element within the programme and strong partnerships between Poplar HARCA, Tower Hamlets Council and Plastic Omnium Urban Systems meant that refuse could be taken underground. Plastic Omnium Urban System’s Underground Refuse Systems were the clear favourite for the job.
Poplar HARCA has 183 underground refuse systems in use and a further 29 in development. When they were installed, they were the first of their kind in the UK – and it remains the largest installation of Underground Refuse Systems in the country. Furthermore, recent upgrades have showcased best technical practice, making it easier for residents to dispose of their waste while keeping the number of wheeled bins to a minimum. 5000 litres of waste can be kept securely under each unit: ideal for the area’s high density estates.
The results have been dramatic, for Poplar HARCA, Tower Hamlets Council and residents alike.
• Physical waste has been removed from the street scene, together with much of the vermin that feeds on it.
• Refuse fires have been eliminated, saving repairs money and improving respect for the environment.
• Weekly cleaning and tagging of Underground Refuse System units and adoption of latest pedal driven technology further encourages regular use.
• Time and money have been saved through reducing the amount of dumped items that then have to be removed, with further savings arising from reduced landfill and tipping costs.
• Cost savings are reinvested in the area, ensuring that local residents benefit at every level from the installation of the Underground Refuse Systems.
“Transforming our estates makes a huge difference in quality of life for our residents,” says Suzanne Wolfe, Assistant Director of Technical Resources at Poplar HARCA. “A vital part of this process has been the installation of Plastic Omnium Urban Systems’ Underground Refuse Systems, which have reduced street clutter, removed street waste and vermin, delivered cost savings and improved the appearance of our estates. From our experience, Underground Refuse Systems make an important contribution to the effective management of waste in high-density housing environments.”
In addition, all the evidence Poplar HARCA has subsequently gathered indicates that providing high quality, safe communal spaces enhances the wellbeing of residents. Customer satisfaction figures show that satisfaction with the quality of the estates rose from 69.2% in 2011 to 88% in 2014. Satisfaction with caretaking services showed a similar increase, 65% in 2012 to 79% in 2014.
Whilst Poplar HARCA is currently the largest operator of Underground Refuse Systems in the UK, other organisations are also benefitting from their installation and still more are showing interest in using them. They are also learning from Poplar HARCA’s best practice approach to managing the systems at events such as last summer’s 'Taking Refuse Underground' event, which was organised by Plastic Omnium Urban Systems.
“Plastic Omnium Urban Systems is proud to have supported Poplar HARCA throughout this outstanding programme of regeneration,” concludes Richard Gregg, managing director of Plastic Omnium Urban Systems UK and Ireland. “Our Underground Refuse Systems are delivering tangible benefits for all concerned, illustrating the value that they offer for local authorities, housing associations and property developers throughout the UK.”
