The Migros Luzern cooperative has renewed the technology for returns disposal in Dierikon. The concept of Hunkeler Systeme AG was convincing due to its simple, compact design.
The operations centre of the Migros Lucerne cooperative is located in Dierikon. From here, the supermarket branches and restaurants of the retailer throughout central Switzerland are supplied with products every day. Conversely, all packaging recyclables that need to be disposed of arrive in Dierikon. For the disposal of recyclable materials, a new compaction plant with a high-performance baler has been in operation since January 2021. The plant was planned and realised by Hunkeler Systeme AG. “The compact, simple design was convincing,” says Roger Heer. He managed the project at Migros. Plant mechanic Franco Leo, who is responsible for plant maintenance, adds: “The entire plant is easily accessible, which makes maintenance and cleaning work much easier for us.”
