Marlet continues to expand its environmental push by incorporating waste compactors in residential developments
Following a successful pilot project in Mount Argus, Harold’s Cross, Marlet is to introduce AES Bord Na Mona’s EASI waste compactors in all its residential sites, in an effort to reduce even further each development’s carbon footprint.
Marlet’s partnership with AES started in 2020 when the same development, Mount Argus was selected for the trialling of Ireland’s first new fleet of zero-emission electric refuse collection vehicles (eRCVs).
Designed and made in Ireland, the EASI compactor is an innovative and user-friendly system, which has considerable environmental benefits, from compacting and storing waste safely and efficiently, to reducing drastically the frequency of truck movements and waste collections needed per site.
The EASI uses a patented method of compaction which has a 93% reduction in carbon footprint when compared to standard wheelie bin collection. The system is single phase and low energy, and when not in use simply goes into standby. The EASI also incorporates a chemical free UV means of disinfection which produces no chemical by-products.
Another key feature of the EASI is its capacity to safely compact and store general waste and recyclables, in separated patented airtight bags (made from recycled polypropylene) designed specifically to avoid cross-contamination. This will considerably help recycling centres’ process and will result in a significant increase in the amount of items being effectively recovered and recycled, keeping in line with Marlet’s sustainability ethos.
