Advantages of vacuum collection system
In urban areas where population is rapidly increasing, the collection system is a safe and sustainable solution for waste disposal. The system eliminates the sights and smells that are typically associated with storage, handling and disposal of trash. The disposal inlets are open 24/7 for users which mean that they do not have to rely on dumpsters that are almost always overflowing with trash. The system remains operational during heavy rainfall or snow because underground pipes are unaffected. If a vacuum collection system is installed in an urban community, it reduces the need for heavy waste transportation that results in less traffic jams. Obnoxious odors and flies are eliminated from the area keeping the population safe from diseases because no waste is left lying on the grounds.
Vacuum collection system in a hospital environment
In many big hospitals large volumes of hazardous waste and contaminated laundry are handled daily which makes the collection system as a sustainable solution. The system prevents waste to be physically touched when they are transported from department to department. This is a potential health risk for both patients and staff who are handling contaminated stuff. If waste and laundry are transported through closed pipe systems, manual handling is kept to a minimum. The system is a long term investment that simplifies logistics and keeps costs low. However, the best returns on investment are a clean environment without any risks for infections to spread because patients and staff do not come into physical contact with dirty laundry and hazardous waste.
Vacuum collection system at airports
Large amounts of waste are generated at airports from the canteens, restaurants and numerous shops in the area. If waste is handled manually, it can lead to several problems because waste bags have to be carried past several areas where there are passengers and staff. If it is installed at airports, waste from airplanes that have just taxied in can be thrown straight into waste chutes located at the bridge or at the tarmac. Not only does the system offer financial advantages, it ensures a clean and safer environment for passengers and staff because they do not come into contact with trash.
Commercial environments also benefit from having such system because most of the trash is recyclable. It is usually composed of paper, boxes, cardboard and plastic that use up a significant amount of space before it is collected by trucks. With the system, the environment becomes cleaner and manual handling of waste is minimized.
