Megabox is an advanced, high-capacity underground system for the collection and compaction of waste. It has been created to service areas with a high production of waste, especially department stores, hospitals, markets, ports, etc.
The system is installed underground inside a tailor-made concrete chamber, and remains hidden under a lid that can be paved. The final result is flawless, because the only visible part of the system is the collection bin.
Intelligent top bin has been specifically designed to be used with the Megabox system.
It is a highly resistant top bin, suitable for industrial use and it is made of stainless steel.
Its aesthetic and modern design facilitates its integration in any environment.
It has two independent disposal doors: for domestic and industrial users.
It features an advanced safety system that limits the opening of the top bin to users with identification card and which allows the automatic locking of the disposal doors.
Megabox is composed of a self-compactor, a hydraulic lifting platform with hinged lid, a hydraulic station, an electric and management system and a top bin at the street level for the introduction of waste.
Highly resistant, made of stainless steel
- It eliminates the negative visual impact of containers placed at the street level.
- It dignifies the area where they are located, which can be restored and used for other purposes more suitable for city centres (restaurants, terraces, promenades…)
- It minimizes the urban furniture used. It replaces more than 60 1000l containers.
- It prevents the abandonment of garbage bags outside the containers.
- It prevents access to waste by animals/people.
- It minimizes bad odours produced by waste.
The system's high storage capacity (up to 20m3 capacity, with 1-3 compaction (equivalent up to 60 m3 without compaction), allows the reduction of the collection frequency and the collection at one only spot, thus achieving:
- The reduction of the total collection costs.
- The reduction of noise, operations and collection points
- The reduction of the impact of collection trucks on traffic.
- The reduction of points to be maintained and cleaned.
It is adapted to areas with restaurants and markets, the waste of which is handled in boxes or garbage bags bigger than the domestic ones.
When self-compactor is full, during collection, maintenance or failure, the top bin is automatically locked and a red LED turns on.
To signal the opening maneuver safely for pedestrians, the system emits sound and amber light flashes during the day and only light at night.
Access with RFID card to identify user. It allows the private or limited use of the equipment.
It helps optimize collection, as containers are only collected when they are full. The management system generates a warning when it detects a preset fill level. This warning can be sent by SMS or by email to those responsible for the collection.
With this system it is possible to know the exact date and time when the self-compactor is collected, as well as the date and time when the compactor is replaced after being emptied and, therefore, the duration of this process. Besides, the system uses these data to generate historical records that can be used to match invoices, create statistical reports or to address any complaint from citizens.
The electronic system continuously controls a great number of the equipment points (locking devices, LEDS, fuses, safety devices, connections, positions…), monitoring its operations and status, detecting any possible failure and generating warnings (by SMS or email) for the maintenance service the aim of which is reducing downtimes as much as possible.
It allows the identification of each user, obtaining very useful information about habits, frequencies and usage hours. This individual identification also helps to identify any person who is misusing the equipment.
