Recycling centre management
In recycling centres various waste types are gathered before they are further processed or disposed of.
Recycling centres accept waste from citizens and firms. They deal with the waste not suitable for disposal in standard containers, i.e. voluminous or hazardous waste of O and N categories.
Recycling centre management is authorised by a relevant regional authority and complies with Waste Act.
These are usually facilities equipped with:
- mobile containers and bins for different waste types,
- a weighing scale,
- waste handling premises.
Moreover, in these facilities:
- hazardous substances are prevented from entering the environment,
- all operations are monitored,
- the operatives are trained to be able to handle hazardous substances.
Citizens dispose of waste either free of charge or paying a fee depending on the terms of the municipality. Firms and entrepreneurs dispose of waste paying a fee according to the current price list.
Recycling centre management versus municipalities and towns
Recycling centre management is based on the contract with a municipality. When a municipality is the owner of the property, Marius Pedersen a.s. is a recycling centre operator.
If a town iniciates the construction of a recycling centre, Marius Pedersen makes all the investments and charges the town for the service including the realization cost. A recycling centre is very often an integral part of the Marius Pedersen production centre in the municipality or town.
A recycling centre is planned and constructed with respect to its accessibility and local specifics to meet the needs of the municipality or town.
