Waste-processing and recycling businesses

The global waste mountain continues to grow: a study by the World Bank predicts that by 2050 this will increase by no less than 70%. Given the scarcity of natural resources, in principle, this growing mountain of waste will provide us with a source from which to satisfy our future raw material needs. As such, this means that it’s even more important for waste-processing and recycling businesses to separate out waste flows and store them safely so that they can acquire new value. Legioblock can help you meet this challenge.


For separating out mixed waste from container rentals it was decided to build storage bays made from stackable concrete blocks from Legioblock. This was a flexible, safe and easy solution.

Modular construction system

For the construction of storage facilities, Legioblock offers a flexible modular solution. The concrete blocks can be stacked to quite a considerable height. Thanks to the interlocking system, no additional means of securement is required. This means that the storage location can be moved at any time and quickly adapted to suit your required storage capacity.

Safe and stable

A standard stackable concrete block from Legioblock is 80 cm in width and weighs around 1,000 kilos. This allows you to construct a stable storage facility which is able to endure heavier waste flows in comparison with a narrower block and which can also take a knock or two. It also provides a safe working environment for your employees. To properly safeguard this, we will always send you an independent static calculation of your storage facility.

Eliminating risks of mixed waste

As a recycling or waste-processing company, you have to deal with a large diversity of waste flows needing separate and safe storage. By creating separate storage bays, the risks of mixed waste at your storage facility can be eliminated.

The effects of weather

With Legioblock, it’s possible to provide your storage facility with a roofing system. This means your waste flows will be adequately protected from the effects of any kind of weather.



Recycling businesses are regularly affected by fire. Whilst it’s impossible to rule out completely, if you take the right safety measures this fire hazard can be minimised. Legioblock is Class A1 fire-resistant which helps prevent fire spreading between compartments.
