Single Chute Systems

Our single chute system offers a practical solution for single stream waste (i.e. general waste) transfer in multi-unit and/or multi-level developments. Ideal for projects only requiring single waste disposal, this system is most effective when suitable space is available for mixed recycling receptacles (or bins) alongside the chute or within a bin storage or service room.

Single chutes are also a great solution for laundry transfer and collection in hotels, accommodation, aged care, and other commercial facilities.

Dual Chute Systems

Ideal for projects only requiring single waste disposal, this system is most effective when suitable space is available for mixed recycling receptacles (or bins) alongside the chute or within a bin storage or service room.

Single chutes are also a great solution for laundry transfer and collection in hotels, accommodation, aged care, and other commercial facilities.

eDIVERTER SYSTEMS

The eDiverter Chute System by Elephants Foot offers multi waste stream (up to 4 streams) disposal down a single chute. Providing developers and architects with more workable floor space and building owners and caretakers with significant savings in operational waste management.

Combining innovation with practicality our eDiverter system is an electronic diversion chute system which transfers the deposited waste into the correct collection receptacle located in the bin room.

User friendly, with industry standard colour coded push buttons (with universal waste symbols), our system facilitates easy recognition of different waste streams to assist in correct segregation of waste being disposed. The controls, along with signage and other resource material can promote more accurate waste segregation and collection and can further assist in avoiding confusion and contamination.

WASTE ROOM EQUIPMENT

Our range of automated waste room equipment assists in the collection of waste or recycling being disposed of from the floors above via our chute. With optional compaction units available for higher waste generating developments, our equipment automatically changes bins as they are filled. Providing for a highly proficient collection facility, our equipment solutions save time and money over more traditional bin storage and service rooms on each floor and can reduce collection frequencies.

Standard systems available include our Linear Track and Carousel for 240, 660 or 1100 litre bins, holding up to 5 bins per unit and with optional compaction. Also available is our small Packer to suit 1.5 or 3 cubic metre containers and our Splitter discharge which is an effective solution for waste rooms with limited space for other equipment options.
