Pneumatic waste collection system

URD systems are the solution for the collection of waste in areas with productions between 3 and 25 tons per day, allowing to make a waste collection in different fractions, to implement the latest innovations in payment per generation. 
Pneumatic waste collection system offers many advantages compared to traditional collection systems and allows to collect as many fractions as necessary, simultaneously.
Facilities built with URD technology include:

· Waste disposal points (inlets)
· Transport network (pipeline and associated infrastructure).
· Collection terminal.

Advantages of pneumatic collection

URD's Pneumatic collection technology offers to the citizens a Modern and efficient waste collection system. Improves the urban image, optimizes the selective collection at source, decreases the cost per ton collected compared to conventional systems and offers a smart service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
