Certification of wastes and used clothes collection containers
The separate collection systems in different urban areas are implemented through the use of containers that sometimes differ from municipality to municipality; but every container has to ensure some key features:
- compatibility with emptying systems;
- safety in use;
All these characteristics are verified through inspections carried out under this certification scheme, as a very useful tool for contracting authorities and users of these products to ensure their compliance to applicable European standards UNI EN 840 - UNI EN 12574- EN 13071.
Regarding the containers for the collection of used clothes, not existing a reference standard, the scheme provides for a series of checks and tests to ensure the safety in use and durability.
