Emptying of multi-compartment waste containers
The multi-compartment waste container is emptied to a specially designed waste truck, the tank of which is divided into four compartments corresponding to the waste container. This allows the different types of waste to be kept separate and raw materials to be recycled and the emptying can be carried out with one truck during one trip. The order of the compartments in the waste container cannot be changed because the waste would get mixed up in the truck.
In the further processing of waste, the various waste bins in the truck are emptied one at a time and the materials remain separate, ending up as recycled raw materials for different industrial operators.
