Description

Device for waste collection and method for using said device

[0001] The present invention relates to a device for waste collection according to the introduction of claim 1. In practice there are two types of waste collection systems from waste collection systems. A first collection system, in which the containers are exchanged by means of a vehicle, that is, in which the waste is carried by the vehicle in the container in which it was deposited for emptying in a central location. A second type, in which a vehicle lifts the container from its location, emptying the contents of the container into a collection tank in the vehicle, after which the container in question is replenished to its respective location. An important aspect of the second type is that it must be possible to empty the container quickly, using means that are available in the vehicle, which is not relevant in the case of the first type. The invention therefore relates to a device for collecting waste of the second type.

[0002] A device for waste collection referred to in the introduction is generally known, for example through document NL-C-1005958. Such devices for waste collection, can be found for example, in shopping centers. When shopping, consumers take their bottle of drink (non-returnable) and deposit it in the waste collection device in question. Periodically, or, if the container is equipped with a sensor that measures the level of filling of the container, when the sensor in question indicates that predetermined level of filling has been reached, a truck comprising a crane and a collection tank drives the device for waste collection in question, lifting the container from its location, with the exit opening in the closed position, opens the exit opening, emptying the contents in the collection tank and replenishes the container to its location, with the opening of exit in closed position.

[0003] A drawback of such a waste collection device lies in the fact that the container can be filled relatively quickly, in particular in the case of empty containers such bottles (plastic) and milk cartons since the containers vacuums contain a lot of air. This inconvenience is manifested to an increasing extent, since the collection of this type of packaging is becoming more and more topical.

[0004] Accordingly, the object of the present invention is to provide a device for waste collection referred to in the introduction, in which the container can be filled more efficiently, or in which the container is filled with smaller speed than in the case of known waste collection devices of the type in question.

[0005] This object is achieved through the characterizing part of claim 1. The waste collection device comprises a compaction device for compressing the contents of the container. This does not mean so much that the packages are compressed individually, without excluding this possibility, but that the contents of the container are compressed together. This does not necessarily have to take place directly after depositing the first of the waste in the container, but it can also take place, for example, from a time when the container has reached a certain level of filling, by pressing together the waste that has been deposited in the container when the container is almost completely filled with the containers, partially filled with air. Since the contents of the container are pressed together by the compaction device, the container can be filled with six to seven times more waste than is possible with a known container with comparable contents that is not equipped with a compaction device. In the present invention, locking and / or unlocking means are provided for locking and unlocking the closing means of the outlet opening. The blocking means can prevent unintentional release of the closing means of the outlet opening when pressure is exerted on the contents of the container, for example through the compaction device. The object of the present invention is therefore achieved. The invention is based in part on the perception that the container will be able to withstand the pressure of the compaction device, when the closing means are of sufficiently robust construction. Another advantage of the present invention is that compacted waste occupies less space, not only in the container, but also in the truck with which they are transported to a central collection facility. This leads to a reduction in the transport costs of a waste collection system.

[0006] The outlet opening is provided on the bottom side of the container. Such type is known as a so-called lower discharge container. The lower discharge containers are, in particular, suitable for waste collection devices of the second type, the contents of which are emptied in a vehicle collection tank, after which the container is directly replenished to its original location. Therefore, the flaps of the lower part of the container can be coupled to the lifting means, so that said flaps can be actuated by said lifting means.

[0007] In fact, the waste collection devices comprising a compaction device are known, but they turn out to be devices for the collection of waste of the first type. The container, or at least the outlet opening, for waste collection, of such devices is closed more firmly. Each time they are full, the containers are quickly exchanged for the voids at the location in question. Containers must remain firmly closed at all times while handling, transporting and storing them for emptying at central waste collection facilities. In the case of containers of the second type, it is important that the closing means can be unlocked in a simple way when they are emptied. A container of the first type will therefore be easily able to withstand the forces of the compaction device, while the application of a pressure in the case of a container of the second type implies the risk of the container being pushed up its location, at least partially, underground.

[0008] It is noted in this regard that, in addition, containers comprising a conveyor are known, in which said conveyor conducts waste from the inlet opening to the container, and although the container may experience an effect of increasing pressure on the contents of a container, such a conveyor should not be considered as a compaction device, because the force supplied by the conveyor, in any case, is barely capable of compacting the contents of the container. If such an effect is achieved, at all, it can be considered as an unwanted effect. The strength of the compaction means of a waste collection device according to the present invention is preferably suitable for compaction by a factor of 2, more preferably a factor of 4, even more preferably a factor of at least 6, of the contents of the container. The force to be exerted by the compaction device depends on the type of container and its contents.

[0009] The German utility model DE 20 2006 016 421 U1 describes a buried waste collection container. This document describes that containers with a press device are usually large enough to be loaded onto a collection vehicle to transport the container to a warehouse where it is emptying. For this reason the invention described in DE 20 2006 016 421 U1 refers to a rather small container for collecting relatively large amounts of waste. The container has an inlet opening and an outlet opening in the upper side of the container. When the container has to be emptied, it can be tilted, so that the closing plate pivots can move to an open position, or the closing plate can be completely removed, in order to empty the container.

[0010] The German utility model DE 203 05 392 U1 describes an underground waste container having an inlet opening on the upper side and an outlet opening for emptying the container into a side wall. When the container is to be emptied, it is collected by a collection vehicle and replaced by an empty container. Once emptied, it can be taken to an underground receptacle to replace another container to be emptied.

[0011] The locking and / or unlocking means are preferably suitable for locking / unlocking the outlet opening vertically. This means that the drive means are actuated in the vertical direction to lock / unlock the closing means. This makes it possible to operate the locking and unlocking means during a lifting movement whereby, the container is lifted from its location, for emptying.

[0012] It is preferable that the locking and / or unlocking means are provided in the lifting means included in the container and by means of which the container is lifted by means of a crane associated with the vehicle. In this case, the lifting means can function as a drive element.

[0013] In this regard, it is preferable that the lifting means comprise at least two lifting elements. When at least two lifting elements are used, the lifting of the container can take place in a more controlled manner than in the case of using only one lifting element. These two or more lifting elements provide greater stability in certain situations.

[0014] In a preferred embodiment of the present invention, at least one of the lifting elements is part of a drive mechanism for the locking and unlocking means. This makes it possible to operate the locking and unlocking means while the container is being lifted, or at least while the container is suspended from a lifting element, or both, for example, on the vehicle collection tank.

[0015] When at least one of said at least two lifting elements can be moved independently of at least the other of said at least two lifting elements for actuation of the locking and unlocking means, it is possible to perform simple operation of the locking and unlocking means. Therefore, said at least one of said at least two lifting elements may temporarily assume the lifting function of at least one of said at least two lifting elements, while at least one of said at least two Lifting elements can be operated by means of crane mounted on the vehicle.

[0016] Therefore, it is advantageous that the closing means are in their locked position when a tensile force is not being exerted on either or both of said at least two lifting elements, and that said means They are in their unlocked position when a pulling force is being applied on only one of said at least two lifting elements. When a handling device, for example a hydraulic handling device, from which the other of said at least two lifting elements is suspended, is pulled out, the container will remain suspended from one of said at least two lifting elements. As a result of said outward engagement, the coupling of the closing means can be released, so that the closing means release the exit opening and the waste collected in the container can be deposited in a vehicle collection tank. When subsequently the handling device of the other of said, at least two lifting elements is tensioned again, exerting a tensile force on it, this will result in the container, which is suspended from both of said, at least two lifting elements again at some point, the closing means are in the locked position. Thus, said blocking coupling can remain intact when the container is returned to its location, releasing the tension in both of said at least two lifting elements. In this way the container cannot be pushed up, so to speak, when waste is deposited in a container that is already full (too much) and the compaction means are activated to push in the full container (too much), as a result of which means of closing may have a tendency to open under the influence of said force.

[0017] An even more stable device is provided, when said device includes two lifting elements, which can be moved relative to a third lifting element located between them. These two lifting elements

or said third lifting element located between those, can be actuated to actuate the locking and unlocking means, while the container is suspended from the other lifting element, or from the other lifting elements.

[0018] In order to prevent an opposition to the compaction action of the compaction device due to the air confined in the packaging material, it is preferable to provide at least one piercing or cutting element for perforating or cutting the containers deposited in the device of waste collection. Said piercing or cutting element as such produces an opening in the package, through which the initially confined air can escape when the package is being compressed.

[0019] In order to allow the waste deposited in the waste collection device to be further compacted, it is preferred to provide a shredding mechanism for shredding the waste deposited through the inlet opening.

[0020] To force excess air from said waste, it is preferable to provide a crushing element to crush the waste deposited in the waste collection device before said waste goes to the container. It is preferable in that respect that the waste in the form of a container be forced to open upon being crushed.

[0021] To make it easier to lift the container from its location and replenish it, it is preferable to provide a holding device to hold the container in said location, whose holding device surrounds the container at least in the bottom portion and the side portion of the same. The clamping device can be configured as a reservoir in which the container can be slidably or telescopically supported.

[0022] In order to prevent a waste collection device from damaging (seriously) the urban landscape, it is preferable that said container is arranged in its location, at least partially buried. In that case, part of the waste collection device is often located above the ground, in which part of the waste can be deposited and through which the waste can be guided to the entrance of the container.

[0023] The present invention further relates to a method for waste collection, according to claim 8. The advantages of this procedure correspond to the advantages as discussed above in relation to the waste collection device.

[0024] The present invention will be explained below, by way of example with reference to the accompanying drawings, in which:

Figure 1a is a sectioned perspective view of a device for collecting waste according to the present invention;

Figure 1b shows the waste collection device of Figure 1, showing the compactor housing in a sectioned view;

Figure 2 is a perspective view of the waste collection device of Figure 1, showing a sectional view of the locking and unlocking device;

Figure 3 shows the waste collection device of Figure 2, whose rings have been lifted by a crane (not shown);

Figure 4 shows the waste collection device of Figure 2, with the locking device in the unlocked position, and

Figure 5 shows the waste collection device of Figure 2, with the closing flaps in the open position.

[0025] In all figures, the same elements are indicated by the same numbers.

[0026] Figure 1a shows a perspective view in section of a waste collection tank 1 comprising a housing 2 which, in use, is disposed above the ground and is provided with an inlet opening 3 for the waste and of rings 4a, 4b, 4c. Positioned below the housing 2 is a container 5, which, in use, is arranged underground and that is delimited by slats 6, between which walls 7 extend, whose container is surrounded on its upper side by a floor plate 12, which, in use, rests on a lower part of an underground channel in which the container 5 of the waste collection tank 1 is placed. The container 5 is provided with flaps 8 on the bottom side, which close the outlet opening (see Figure 5) of the lower discharge vessel 5 and which are locked against an involuntary opening by means of connecting rods 9, which are connected to a connecting piece 10. The connecting piece 10 is coupled so releasable to a locking and unlocking mechanism (not shown in Figure 1) housed inside the housing 2. A similar mechanism of connecting rods and connecting piece is provided on the rear wall (not shown), which is It is located in front of the wall 7 along which the connecting rods 9 extend. As the figure shows, a compactor housing 11 is arranged between the housing 2 and a storage space of the underground container 5, in whose housing a compactor device (not shown) is accommodated.

[0027] Figure 1b is a view of the waste collection tank of Figure 1, in which the front wall, the connecting rods and the compactor housing have been removed, thus leaving a roller 14 visible with a flat screw 13, which functions as a compactor device that is housed in the compactor housing shown in Figure 1.

[0028] Figure 2 is another view of the waste collection tank 1 of Figure 1, in which the housing on the floor and the floor plate have been omitted. As a result, the locking and unlocking mechanism 15 housed in the housing (not shown) is exposed. The locking and unlocking mechanism 15 comprises a movable locking pin 16, widened portions 17a, 17b, 17c, a yoke cam 18, a locking cam 19, a curved plate 20, rods 21a, 21b, 21c, a bearing rollers 22 and a groove 23, which is covered by a cover plate 26. Figure 2 shows the situation in which, in use, the waste collection tank 1 is housed in an underground channel (not shown).

[0029] Figure 3 shows the waste collection tank 1 of Figure 2, in a situation where the waste collection tank 1 is being lifted from the underground channel, for example to a truck having its own storage tank. collection, by means of a crane (not shown) through the rings 4a, 4b, 4c.

[0030] Figure 4 shows the waste collection tank 1 in a situation where the locking and unlocking mechanism is in the unlocked position, but before the flaps 8 are opened by the connection piece 10 and the connecting rods 9.

[0031] To conclude, Figure 5 shows the waste collection tank 1 in a situation in which the flaps 8 have moved down to release the outlet opening 24 of the container 5.

[0032] With reference now to Figures 1a and 1b, the waste container 1 according to the present invention is shown, said waste collection tank 1 comprising, a housing 2 provided with an inlet opening for the waste, for example plastic bottles. The housing 2 is located above the ground and is separated from the underground container 5 by means of a floor plate 12. A channel (not shown) extends from the inlet opening 3 to the compactor housing 11, in which the debris is crushed between the roller 14 and the wall of the compactor housing 11. The orientation of the ribs of the roller 14 ensures that the debris will be crushed between the roller 14 and the wall of the compactor housing 11, being guided downwards towards the flat screw 13. Due to the rotation of the roller 14 and the flat screw 13, the waste moves from the inlet opening 3 and the channel in the direction of the underground container 5. When the underground container 5 is practically empty, the waste will fall into the container from the compactor housing 11, through the flat screw 13, falling into the bottom of the underground container 5 or on the waste already collected in said bottom. However, when the underground container 5 is filled to the level of the flat screw 13, the flat screw 13 will push the debris from the compactor housing into the underground container 5, thereby further compressing the contents of the underground container 5. The compactor pressure , which is exerted on the contents of the underground container 5 through the flat screw 13, is sufficient to compact the contents of the underground container 5 by a factor of 6 or greater. During said compaction, the pressure on the flaps 8 increases more and more. To prevent the opening of the flaps 8 under the influence of the pressure exerted and push the underground container 5 upwards (the flaps 8 are placed against or near the underground channel (not shown) in which the waste collection tank is housed 1, or at least, the underground container 5 thereof, the flaps 8 are connected, through the connecting rods 9 and the connecting piece 10, to a locking and unlocking mechanism, as will be explained in more detail below. .

[0033] With reference now to Figure 2, the waste collection tank of Figure 1 is shown in a partially sectioned view, so that the locking and unlocking mechanism 15 of the waste collection tank 1 is visible . Figure 2 shows the situation in which the waste collection tank 1 is located in a position, usually in a condition ready to receive the waste, with the container 5 of the waste collection tank 1 disposed primarily underground. . The rings 4a, 4b and 4c that are respectively connected to the bars 21a, 21b and 21c, are respectively provided with an enlarged portion 17a, 17b and 17c, at their lower ends. The outer bars 21a and 21b are slidably housed in 18 yoke cams, which are attached to the vertical arms of the connecting pieces 10 and which are movable with respect to the locking cams 19, which are part of a yoke comprising a back plate 27 and the connecting parts 10. The rod 21b is slidably housed between two curved plates 20. In addition, the three bars 21a, 21b and 21c extend slidably through the cover plate 26. Locking cams 19 are supported on movable locking pins 16, which are connected to bearing rollers 22, which extend through grooves 23 of the curved plates 20.

[0034] When the waste collection tank 1 must be lifted from its location, a crane (not shown) is engaged in the rings 4a, 4b, 4c, pulling them up, as a result of which, the rods 21a, 21b, 21c, rise, while the rest of the waste collection tank 1 remains in its location. Figure 3 shows the situation in which the rods 21a, 21b, 21c have been raised until the rods 21a, 21c butt against the yoke cams 18 for their widened portions 17a, 17c. As a result, the yoke is slightly raised and the locking cams 19 are separated from the mobile locking pins 16.

[0035] Once the waste collection container comprising the container has been maneuvered to a position above a collection tank, for example, of a truck, the crane will release tension slightly on the outer rings 4a, 4c . However, since the container 5 is connected to the rings 4a, 4c through the yoke, said yoke will move down with the container 5. But, the curved plates are stopped, by the widened portion 17b of the intermediate rod 21b , which is suspended from the crane through the ring 4b. Therefore, the bearing rollers 22 move downward in the grooves 23 of the curved plates 20. Since the slots 23 are located more inwardly on their lower side than on their upper side, the bearing rollers 22 are pushed inward, pulling the movable locking pins 16 along an inward direction, such as as a result of which the downward movement of the locking cams 19 is no longer stopped by the mobile locking pins 16 in question.

[0036] When the tension in the outer rings 4a, 4c is subsequently released further, the waste collection device 1 will be suspended only from the intermediate ring, and the back plate 27 can move down with the connecting pieces 10 with respect to the upper plate 26 and the curved plates 20. Since the upper plate 26 is fixedly connected to the slats 6 and the walls 7 of the container 5, said container will remain essentially static in position, and the connection pieces 10 will move towards below with respect to the container 5, as a result of which also the connecting rods 9 move downwards with respect to the container, thus opening the flaps 8 of the container 5. Then the residues of the container 5, fall freely, for example in the collection tank of the truck that collects the waste. When the above procedure is repeated in reverse order, the flaps 8 of the container 5 are closed again and the waste collection tank 1 can finally be returned to its position with said flaps in locked condition. Due to this blocked condition, it is subsequently possible again to exert pressure on the contents of the container, without the risk of spontaneous opening of the flaps of the container that would push the container upwards from its location.

[0037] In the figures and in the description, only one embodiment of the present invention has been shown and described, by way of example. It will be understood, however, that the figures and the description in no way have a limiting effect on the scope of the present invention, which is defined by the appended claims. Thus, the term "waste" should be interpreted broadly. The term "waste" also includes consumer items, for example, that can be transformed into raw materials through a return system, such as plastic bottles and milk cartons of laminated cardboard. The ribs that can be distinguished in the roller can alternatively also be configured as blades or pins, so that the residues are not so much,

or not only, crushed but cut or perforated.
