Underground Refuse Systems and the city of Kissimmee, along with Gates Builders partnered in providing four underground waste containers, first time in Kissimmee and North America, to the residents of Hamilton at Lakeside apartments, 1209 Bermuda Lakes Lane, Kissimmee, on Tuesday.
Underground Refuse Systems installed containers (six cubic yards by 11 feet deep) that were lifted by a crane system on a custom designed AutoCar truck, that will collect the solid waste from these underground stationary containers.
This was the first multi-family community to install the underground containers in Kissimmee and North America.
“We have been working with Underground Refuse Systems for over three years now, since they launched in Kissimmee and we have over 50 above and underground containers throughout the city, so we are excited to continue to improve garbage collection with this innovative waste disposal system,” said Kissimee Mayor Jose Alvarez. “This is the first multi-family community to receive these underground containers in North American and we are thrilled it’s happening right here in our city.”
Kissimmee is the first government agency to partner with Underground Refuse Systems on this new and innovative way of disposing waste in their city.
Underground Refuse Systems, established in 2015, containers have environmentally friendly benefits as an underground waste container that will eliminate human and unforeseen errors, safety for the operator, productivity optimization and reduced maintenance costs, elevate unwanted animal disruption and unwanted dumpster users (Container can be secured for those who have access only cards), odor, and more. Underground Refuse Systems is the exclusive and only distributor of this underground container in the North America and headquartered in Kissimmee.”
“Today our partnership with the City of Kissimmee couldn’t be a better with installing our first ever multi- family community with four underground containers in North America and this is just the beginning,” said Jay Wheeler, president of Underground Refuse Systems. “Our partnership is important to us because this is where we started and now, we hope to grow throughout the country by keeping our communities environmentally safe one waste container at a time.”
