Collection, sorting and storage
The storage activity begins with the collection of waste at the client's premises, careful verification of the same and their selection and subsequent sorting into homogeneous lots for the purpose of facilitating more highly effective disposal and/or recycling according to criteria for the optimization of resources. The wastes are then stored in different areas of the plant, which are properly identified, subdivided according to type and, where necessary, subjected to volumetric adjustment. As far as substances similar or equivalent to urban wastes are concerned, a rough separation of fractions is performed with a mechanical vehicle fitted with a spider-type grappling device, followed by manual sorting of recyclable wastes, such as, for example, paper, plastic, wood or iron. The different recovered fractions are then periodically sent to recycling/re-use facilities, while the remaining, residual, non-recoverable fraction is transferred for disposal.
Vallortigara is capable of handling different types of wastes, including paint and exhausted solvents, lead-acid and small batteries, cleansed packaging and packaging containing residual traces of dangerous substances, exhausted acids and bases, insulating materials and materials containing asbestos, oil-based emulsions and exhausted oil, absorbent products and filtering materials etc.
The list of all treatable wastes is contained in Annex A enclosed with the firm's business authorization.
