Recycling Through Underground Tubes
"The system, made by Swedish specialist Envac, has been installed at developer Quintain's mixed-use Wembley City scheme adjacent to Wembley stadium in London.
Residents are moving into the first completed building on the 34ha scheme and have been using a conventional waste collection service until today.
The building features a courtyard containing three collection points adjacent to the building entrances. Each collection point has three separate chutes which look similar to a post box. Residents separate their waste into three streams, organic material, recyclable items including glass, paper and plastic and non recyclable waste. The waste is placed in each chute through a door similar to a washing machine where it drops into a holding point.'
