Incineration is an ideal solution for handling waste produced by educational facilities. Our range of incinerators are the complimentary fit in a well-balanced waste management plan.
Education facilities require an efficient waste management solution to cope with the constant stream of varied waste.
Every school and university has a legal responsibility to provide an efficient waste management system. Teaching the younger generation how to properly manage waste in an eco-friendly way is important for any educational facility, and this responsibility must be addressed by every school.
A typical university student studying a degree will generate over 1.5 tonnes of waste during their time at university.
The average secondary school produces around 22kg of waste per pupil each academic year. The amount of waste produced by primary schools is even higher at around 45kg per pupil. The average amount of waste produced by universities in the UK is around 469 kilograms per student per academic year.
Typical waste generated from schools and universities is usually considered as MSW (Municipal Solid Waste).
There are several reasons incinerators for educational waste are the ideal solution:
Exporting waste off-site is costly & with the large amounts of waste being produced daily, this cost will continue to increase over time. The best approach to educational facility waste is incineration – collecting the waste on-site, and thermally disposing of it safely and quickly.
Incinerators for educational facilities are capable of dealing varied streams of waste – from the general ‘household’ waste produced to other specific waste such as hazardous/bio -hazardous waste from science labs such as equipment, chemicals and other materials used.
Our friendly and knowledgeable sales team will assist you step by step through the processes, understanding your needs and specifying the optimal solution for your project or waste streams.
