Modulo’s upcycle centre

Modulo Beton has developed a modular household waste recycling centre. The precast concrete modules meet EU fire safety codes and can easily be transported to new locations if needed.

The space beneath the structure can be used as a storage area, such as for household hazardous waste, WEEE, equipment and vehicles. In the Netherlands there are plans to include an ‘upcycle centre’ in the space underneath a Modulo centre.

The company is making inroads in the UK; the Southwark Reuse and Recycling Centre includes 18 Modulo bays.

Braam says: “It’s so logical. Normally, if you want to move a waste facility, you have to demolish it and incur a lot of costs. I think on average a new waste collection facility needs to be rebuilt every seven years in another place because cities are expanding. Waste streams change over time as well.

“This facility is bought once, up front, and the costs are much lower to move it somewhere else.”
