Bi-Sorter and Tri-Sorter Systems

 

The UMT™ 200 & 300 Series 24” diameter Bi-Sorter & Tri Sorter was designed for multi-story buildings that wish to sort recyclables away from the buildings trash with a single chute system.

The UMT™ 200 & 300 Series 24” diameter Bi-Sorter & Tri-Sorter is installed below the buildings trash chute which will then allow the sorting mechanism to divert trash to a compactor or container and recyclables to a dedicated container. The diverter is controlled at each intake floor. The user selects the desired sorting type with the push button. If the sorter system is installed with our Easy-Wave® interlock system the selection buttons will be integral with the system.
