Of all the compactors/containers in the Netherlands intended for recyclable plastics, 25% of this plastic waste is processed via the Sidcon Presstation Pro for Plastics. It’s a figure we’re intensely proud of. A lot of rigorous market research went into developing this ingenious Presstation Pro. The result is a container which is fully geared up to the needs of present-day society, with a focus on sustainability and efficient use of space.
Plastic waste is sadly having a bit of a boom. This means that proper sustainable waste processing and minimisation of collections is becoming even more important. This is especially the case where traffic is heavy and waste levels are systemically high or fluctuate dramatically. Take the town of Veere in Zeeland, for example. Refuse collection vehicles come and go all the time. Sometimes containers have to be emptied three times a week, which is neither sustainable nor efficient. High time therefore, to switch to our underground compactors for recyclable plastics.
“We noticed a marked increased in the volume of plastics. The question was really quite simple: either install extra containers everywhere or look for another solution with underground compactors. For sure, one important argument was that the compactors from Sidcon slotted into existing concrete wells. Or, put another way, this was a precondition for ‘another solution”.
