Andy Mudd, Head of APSE Solutions, offers a brief overview of the recent Underground Refuse Systems virtual briefing event on Tuesday 14 July.
APSE Solutions and Liverpool City Council are working together to bring Underground Refuse Systems to the UK. 150 people, representing 98 authorities joined a recent online briefing to hear about the benefits of going underground, including:
Attendees were given information about a range of URS designs suitable for different locations. From new housing developments to existing urban areas, to replacing litter bins in parks and on sea fronts, going underground can cuts cost whilst also improving the environment. Liverpool spoke of the city’s compelling vision for transforming areas of terraced housing and the central role that URS is set to play in making that vision a reality for thousands of Liverpool residents.
APSE and Liverpool are in the process of creating a procurement framework to cover underground refuse systems, vehicles to collect them, technology to add functionality to them and cleaning/ maintenance to keep them working properly. The framework is attracting the interest of major European suppliers and is expected to be available for use by all UK contracting authorities in the Autumn of this year.
The APSE Solutions Underground Refuse Hub contains all of our latest articles and events on this innovative and increasingly popular refuse system.
