What is Semi-Underground?A Semi-Underground container is a smart container, with a part above ground (mostly 1/3) and a part underground (mostly 2/3).
First, a small excavator digs a hole for the bin.
Secondly, the bin is placed with a small crane (possible with the same machine).
At last, the ground around the bin is poured back and compacted.
First, a garbage truck (with one person) arrives.
Secondly, the crane lifts the inner collection bag and brings it above the truck.
At last, the bag is emptied and returned to the bin.
Movie of Process
One Z-Bin 5000 L equals 6 standard Roll Containers and a stunning 36 Wheelie Bins.
The difference in volume results in far fewer truck rides; for a one-time empty of the Z-Bin, the same volume has to be emptied 6 times with a Roll Container and 36 times with a Wheelie Bin.
For Semi-Underground emptying, only one operator is needed. This saves a lot of money, in comparison with Roll Container (2) and Wheelie Bin (3).
The environmental impact of Semi-Underground is a lot smaller than Roll Containers and Wheelie Bins, due to the far fewer truck rides and sustainable lifetime.
