Semi Underground Refuse Systems
metroSTOR URH (Available From October 2021)
return to Underground Refuse Systems >>
metroSTOR URH is a semi-underground refuse system designed to enable large fill volumes to be achieved cost effectively within a compact footprint, building on the proven durability of our above ground waste and recycling storage systems.
With significantly less area occupied than the equivalent capacity in four wheeled bins, valuable space on new developments can be released for extra residential units, commercial space or parking bays. For existing schemes and open spaces, metroSTOR URH semi-underground refuse systems provide additional capacity, with neat housings that have multiple finish and cladding options available to coordinate with the surroundings. Fully underground refuse systems are also available.
metroSTOR URH has a fully sealed precast concrete chamber partially set into the ground, with three size options. The steel refuse containers are available in three formats, from full size containers that fill a whole chamber to half and quarter size containers that can be combined in a single chamber for separating waste streams. Different waste lids are available to suit bagged or non bagged recyclables and waste, with signage to help users differentiate correctly.
We are proud to be working with the Association for Public Service Excellence (APSE) under the URS Framework to supply a trusted solution for storing refuse underground and reducing the carbon footprint of waste collection.
The metroSTOR URH Semi Underground Refuse System is currently in development for launch during 2021.
