Waste recycling point Gabriel Metsulaan moves to Acht (GDC Noord).
On Monday 6 July, Cure Afvalbeheer will open the gates of the new waste recycling point at Achtseweg Noord 41 at GDC Noord in Eindhoven. From 1.00 PM, residents of Eindhoven can go to Milieustraat Acht to hand in their bulky waste.
The waste recycling point on Gabriel Metsulaan closes its gates on Saturday 4 July at 5.00 PM.
The opening hours, access and rules on Waste recycling point Acht remain the same as the Gabriel Metsulaan. Besides that, there is a world of difference between the current and the new street. Waste recycling point Acht is spacious and modern and has an effective logistics layout. This ensures that the waiting time is shorter.
Two routes for waste flows
The waste flows are divided over two routes, so that visitors can separate their waste better and faster. The spacious design and better layout make it easier to access the containers. Route A leads visitors to containers for textile, plastic, mattresses, carpet, sofas, metal and roofing, among others. Along route B there are a number of landfills for green waste, construction and demolition waste and various types of wood. Visitors can easily drive in here with their car and trailer to dump their waste. The returning point for Small Chemical Waste, large household devices and Asbestos is also located on route B.
On the way to circularity
Cure Afvalbeheer is taking serious steps on sustainability and circularity with Milieustraat Acht. For example, as many reusable raw materials as possible have been used in the construction of the waste recycling point. Clinker bricks have been reused for the pavement, stabling strip and platform, recycled raw materials (about 60%) have been processed in the asphalt and the façade of the management building consists of recycled, sawn wooden planks.
New headquarters of ‘old’ materials
Cure is building its new office next to the new waste recycling point. The highest point has been reached and it is expected that employees can move into the new office this autumn. During the construction of the office, material from the waste recycling point (such as pavement tiles, glass and textile insulation material) has been extensively used. In addition, if the building’s service stops, all parts can be disassembled and reused. The office becomes energy neutral thanks to solar panels, heat pumps and heat exchangers.
Plans for the future
The new waste recycling point also offers opportunities for the future. Cure is currently working on a plan for the introduction of the new waste passes. Wider opening hours, a trial with Sunday opening, dismantling of composite waste streams, further waste separation and bulking up of waste streams are all parts of this plan.
