    Objective:

    A new, smart solution for waste management reduces the need for road transport and minimises other environmental impacts. The solution is stationary pneumatic refuse collection, using a vacuum to transport waste through underground pipes, separating different types of waste into different containers. A stationary pneumatic refuse collection system means waste doesn’t need to be collected by truck. Instead, it is transported underground by air in pipes and then compacted in sealed containers.
