Types of waste and methods of their transport.

Homepage / News / Types of waste and methods of their transport.
Generating municipal, construction or hazardous waste is a permanent part of everyday life. In order not to lead to environmental degradation, it is necessary to properly store, transport and utilize them. What methods of waste transportation are used in their case? You will find the answer below.

The most common types of human-generated waste.

Of all the types of garbage and waste, the most important are:

  • biodegradable – paper, cardboard, clothing, food scraps, wood and plant products, such as grass and leaves.
  • raw materials – divided selectively according to the type of material, eg plastic, metal, glass, paper.
  • multi-material – most often packages made of two or more types of material that cannot be separated by themselves.
  • large-size products – larger products classified, for example, as household items.
  • construction – all waste in the form of debris formed during renovation and demolition.
  • electrical and electronic – electrically powered waste equipment.
  • hazardous – waste which, if released into the natural environment, may contaminate it.


Transportation of rubble and construction waste.

It is clear that the transport of waste cannot take place with the use of identical transport solutions for each of the above groups. That is why, for example, the collection of rubble and other construction waste takes place using separate containers delivered directly to the construction site. The company dealing with its further processing, of course, reserves the right to selectively place only construction waste in such spaces. The transport of debris in smaller quantities may also take place individually to entities interested in its collection for further processing.

Removal of multi-material and selective waste and electro-waste.

These types of waste are usually collected by municipal product companies. Such waste transport is organized by specially prepared and marked vehicles. Their loading space is in the range of 6–23 m3 and can be one chamber for one type of garbage, or several chambers for the collection of selective products. The dimensions of garbage trucks enable the removal of waste from residential areas, housing estates, but also underground spaces (parking lots).


Transportation of bulky waste and biomass.

Organizing the export of oversized items requires the use of larger loading spaces. For example, the transport of railway sleepers is possible on classic chassis (tautliner) with a capacity of up to 24t or low-bed chassis up to 35 / 60t. The sleepers can be made of reinforced concrete or wood. These items require a permit for legal transportation.

Slightly different means of transport are used for the transport of biomass and other loose materials. You can use the self-unloading transport (tipper) or transport with a moving floor. As a result, the time needed for unloading is effectively shortened and the transported goods are secured.


The best solutions for transporting waste.

Do you want to transport construction waste, rubble or hazardous items? Choose only a carrier that will provide the right logistics solutions and prove it with a qualified crew and appropriately selected means of transport.
