Waste and Recycling eDIVERTER


The single chute , dual stream solution for high rise buildings.

Diversion systems have long been used in multi unit dwellings in the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States as the
simple-to-use system encourages apartment residents to recycle.

Installation of a single-use chute door for both a waste and recycling disposal also provides building owners with significant
savings in labour, energy and floor space:

No recycling areas required on each level – costs savings for developers
No recycling bin movement via lifts – energy cost savings
Reduced bin cleaning time – labour cost savings
Overall reduced labour for building operators
Cost saving for ongoing bldg maintenance (this may assist in strata fee reduction)

The Elephants Foot e-Diverter operates with a single garbage chute, manufactured in either galvanised steel or recycled LLDPE
plastic.  Each building level has a disposal chute door which is electronically connected to an easy-to-operate LED
control panel.

The resident selects a recycling or waste function. This moves a mechanism that guides recycling or waste into the
correct collection bin located in the building’s waste room, than the resident will deposit the correct material into the chute.
