Retrofits & Upgrades

Upgrade your unsafe & inefficient Sawtooth or Pit Waste Transfer Station with an LBin System.

LBin™ systems can be retrofitted to most traditional waste transfer sites.

Retrofitting an LBin System on an old school Sawtooth or Push Pit WTS can result in the following benefits:

  • Major improvements in site safety

    • Eliminate Falls from height & Into bins
    • Reduce user on user contacts
    • Reduce user on staff physical interactions
    • Eliminate machine movements through user areas.
    • Reduce truck movements through the user area.
    • Reduce user site time by >50%
    • Reduce user Strains & Sprains by eliminating the need to carry and lift items over the waste transfer point
  • Improve Reuse Recovery

    • Identify valuable reuse and recycling items before they are committed to bulk waste
    • Swap out LBins with recoverables for extraction away from the public
    • Eliminate the need to store & move recovered items in the public area
    • As reuse items are placed in the LBin and not thrown over a wall or into a pit there is less damage, ensuring higher value and less repair work.
  • Intercept Problem Waste

    • Tyres, Paint, Gas Bottles, batteries, fire extinguishers, poisonous chemicals and others can represent substantial issues if they are permitted into the bulk waste stream.
    • Lay & Display of each load in the LBin allows for problem waste to be identified  & Intercepted before they contaminate the bulk waste.
    • LBins with problem waste can be swapped out,  the items can be extracted by skilled staff safely and away from the public.

Temporary & Disaster Recovery

Disaster Recovery Applications

Cleaning up and rebuilding after a major disaster can take many months.

Expediency sees a large volume of waste going directly to landfills without sorting, including reusable, recyclable, hazardous and problem waste.

After the initial surge of waste collection, a constant stream follows as cleanouts continue, construction waste, and packing materials are generated.

Setting up a temporary LBin System close to the disaster area reduces transport time and allows for the materials to be sorted, removing hazards,  and extracting recyclables, minimising the material going to landfill.

Setting up the LBin System as staging facilities reduces the pressure on the existing Waste Transfer infrastructure that struggles to cope with the massive uplift in deposits.

Temporary Waste Transfer Stations

Demand increases, site shutdowns, seasonal influences, disasters and events can often create a need for temporary WTS. Until the LBin System, the only solutions were masses of bins or rubbish stockpiles.

The LBin system can be set up within days, with available LBin stock.

All that’s needed is some flat ground, weighted road safety barriers, a wheel loader and competent supervision.

Car parks or areas of tarmac close to the need are ideal.

Redevelopment of Landfills and waste transfer sites can create the need to be able to reposition the waste transfer station several times. The modular nature of the LBin System is perfect for this.

Small Scale Sites

The LBin™ systems can be deployed in the smallest of remote sites or the largest metropolitan sites.

A small scale LBin System can be deployed close to the demand at a low capital cost with all the following benefits:

  • rapidly deployed with little fuss, in as little as 8 weeks.
  • delivers all the same benefits in safety and recovery as a large scale system.
  • is low cost to establish. You are up and running with a fenced site, a couple of LBin System bays & a small machine.
  • viable for sites that operate as little as 1-2 days per week.
  • can minimise illegal dumping by having more sites closer to populated areas.
  • can be operated by a team of 2 with a small machine, a team that can move from site to site for different open days.
  • can be established to manage seasonal variations in demand
  • Using load cells on your machine eliminates the need for a weighbridge while providing accurate records of received and recycled waste
  • Gravity BumpBay systems dont even need a slab

A level, compacted area of ground is all you need.

Large Scale Sites

The LBin™ systems can be scaled up to any size site, including sites with 100s of vehicles a day.

The LBin™ systems can be deployed in the smallest of remote sites or the largest metropolitan sites.

Traditional Large Scale Sites

Traditional larger scale Waste Transfer Stations have the following challenges:

  • High Capital cost with long depreciation cycles.
  • Long time to design, develop, approve and construct
  • Are built to a capacity forecast that initially will see underutilisation and eventually won’t be sufficient.
  • Are designed for set processes that reflect the rules & regulations of the time. Rules and regulations that change.
  • Regulatory changes requiring improved Safety, Recycling & Reuse are already presenting process challenges in Traditional WTS.
  • Traditional, constructed facilities are struggling to refit to address safety issues such as falls from height

LBin System Large Scale Sites

  • There is no limit to the scale of an LBin system site.
  • if you have the site area you can increase or decrease the LBin system to match the current demand
  • Capital cost is low and aligned with actual demand, not future forecast demand
  • Capacity capital can be added as needed over time
  • Capital costs are appreciably plant and equipment with a shorter depreciation cycle than built structures
  • Elements and entire systems can be relocated to new sites or multiple sites or on sold
  • The system is at the cutting edge of regulatory requirements and is easily adapted for change
