Project status
Korea / Residential area

The vacuum waste collection system in Eunpyeong Seoul New Town is combined with an incineration facility for extra effective waste treatment.

The green amenity is the main concept of this development, which is one of the reasons for choosing an Envac system to handle the waste. The catch phrase is “The Pride of Seoul”.

The area is planned by Seoul Metropolitan Government.

The automated waste collection system serves 15,500 households.

A new outdoor inlet that identify bags authorized by the local governement is introduced for the first time in Korea.

The tag reader is visible on the right side of the inlet.
