Semi-underground waste management solution

8:00 am - 9:00 am

Solid Waste & Recycling – The Semi-Underground Advantage For the past 24-years, semi-underground containers for solid waste & recycling collection have shifted the paradigm of traditional waste and recycling systems around the world. This course focuses on the many advantages of semi-underground collection, and the benefits that they bring from a site design perspective. We will focus on the key value features of appearance, convenience, and capacity. We will further elaborate on how these key features can increase your available building space, allow for additional parking amenities, create better traffic flow, and allow for more landscaping opportunities, all while creating a more useable and safer waste and recycling collection system. And did we mention that semi-underground systems can contribute to your LEED designation while lowering your capital and operating costs?
