Growing tourism along the Mexican coastline has brought a lot of development but a lot of unwanted waste as well.Local population has increased as well in order to cope with the demand.
In order to tackle this problem Tetra Pak and Tulum Sostenible commissioned us to develop a deployable system to install locally in different areas around Mexico.
The general idea was to create Flatpack Waste Recycling stations for storage and sorting materials.
We developed a system that can be shipped in a container and assembled on site by local authorities to improve waste disposal along the Mexican coast line.
The main metal structure is covered with recycled polialuminum sheets and lattice panels with the same recycled material. The roof is made of palm thatch by local artisans.
There are two models. A cylindrical versión with 8 different material compartments and a Linear versión with six material compartments.
Each kiosk has an access door for the recycling ambassadors in order to collect the different materials from the containers and take them to the recycling facilities.
