Waste Management Recycling Facilities

In an increasingly eco-conscious world, Rubb's waste management buildings and recycling facilities have the flexibility to help meet all your environmental targets.

Waste & recycling storage and processing facilities

For a sector driven by targets, Rubb delivers structures that allow waste material to be un-loaded, stored and processed in a dry, wind free environment.

Rubb can provide custom designed waste management facilities, waste recycling facilities and waste transfer stations to accommodate your specific storage, handling and processing needs.

Our translucent roof fabric provides a light and energy efficient interior for a safer working environment. Rubb offers a full turnkey building service and can provide everything including the fabric structure, foundations, floors, lighting, HVAC, plumbing and electrics - the complete package.

Low Maintenance / Low Costs

Our high-quality membrane materials and post-production galvanized welded framework deliver durability over time, making the cost of maintaining Rubb waste and recycling storage and processing facilities more economical compared to conventional structures.

High Quality Membrane

Energy-Efficient Roof Membranes

Translucent membranes allow natural daylight to illuminate the waste and recycling storage space while the white roof surface reflects heat. Optional Thermohall® insulation minimises heat transfer, prevents condensation and virtually eliminates thermal bridging and air infiltration.

Multiple Door Options

Rubb offers a variety of different waste and recycling warehouse door solutions. They can be selected and designed to suit all opening requirements. This flexibility ensures that our clients get the best option for their selected waste and recycling structure type, depending on their operational needs.

Rapid Construction, Installation and Relocation

Rubb waste and recycling buildings can be quickly erected, dismantled and relocated due to module pre-fabrication. Rubb can provide site supervisors or fully dedicated construction teams to complete any custom waste and recycling project.

Flexible and Cost-Efficient Foundation Systems

Rubb waste and recycling facilities can accommodate many foundation options such as concrete up-stand, ballast weights, and ground anchors into an existing surface. Rubb co-ordination with the groundwork contractor is key for the client to reach the most cost effective solution.

Reduced Time On-Site

Our established supply chain streamlines coordination of delivery and installation. Pre-fabricated elements and the ability to construct our waste and recycling buildings in a variety of weather conditions speeds up the construction process.

Customisable Features

Waste and recycling structures can accommodate all types of door, ventilation and other systems and safely support high loads imposed by overhead cranes, ceiling-mounted HVAC and fire-suppression systems, fall-protection equipment and other superimposed loads.
