250th underground compactor placed in Amsterdam

The arrival of the underground compactor has ensured that Amsterdam is clean, safe and above all liveable despite the growing waste mountain. Residents of Amsterdam do not have to go far to get rid of their waste, the streets have become cleaner because there is no garbage lying around and traffic congestions have been reduced.

Parking places

The most important motivation for Amsterdam to opt for underground compactors at the time was that the waste solution did not come at the expense of parking spaces. Since there is a lot more waste going into an underground compactor, fewer containers were needed in one place. This allowed parking spaces to remain and it was not necessary to sacrifice them for containers.

Sortable

Another important criterion for Amsterdam was that the collected waste still could be sorted well. The underground compactor has been made suitable for the correct processing of the waste. In order to be able to sort the waste properly and to be able to recycle high quality, a specially designed screw conveyor is used. This pushes the waste into the container without being crumpled together.
