Public litter bins, for General waste and Recyclables, are cleared every day without rubbish trucks. The system is hermetically closed, which eliminates odour and vermin. Wheelie bins are never seen.
In the commercial buildings cleansing staff dispose of waste into conveniently located inlets on the ground floor. Waste from those buildings is removed automatically by the system up to 4 times per day depending on usage.
The Envac system will help improve the area’s infrastructure as waste is collected and transported in an underground pipe network, not on the streets. This will reduce waste collection traffic with heavy vehicles remarkably, and make the living environment quieter, cleaner and safer.
The first phase of the system, which includes the collection station, was completed in 2019. The system was commissioned and commenced commercial operations in 2021.
New buildings are being connected to the AWCS regularly and the next stage of the CBD development is expected in 2024.
The entire development will be completed in 2041.
