ק.ס.מ נבחרו לתכנון נוף של פרוייקט פארק המחזור חירייה

The project aims to transform the Hiriya landfill site into a recycling park, giving garbage a second life as raw materials and minimizing environmental damage. Due to the use of advanced technology, the park has become an international leader in the recycling sector, and attracts many professional visitors from Israel and abroad. KSM is to prepare a new master plan integrating a complex variety of uses and programs. Other than the 2000 tons of waste brought in on trucks rolling thru the site every two minutes, a series of new facilities are in the works. These include the RDF plant, upgrading of the organic waste and methane extraction plant, new office of the Dan  Municipal Sanitation Association,  upgrading of infrastructure, new garage separation facility, new construction waste site,  effluent treatment plant, MRF tertiary waste treatment plant, and upgrading of the environmental educational facilities on site.

The Dan Municipal Sanitation and Garbage Disposal Association receives garbage from 18 local municipalities daily. Six of these municipalities are members of the Association: Tel Aviv, Holon, Ramat Gan, Bat Yam, Bnei Brak, and Givatayim. Additional municipalities serviced by the Association are: Shoham, Kiryat Ono, Givat Shmuel, Ramat Efal, Azur, Ganei Tikva, Savyon, Ramat HaSharon, Bet Dagan, Gan Rave, Or Yehuda, and Yehud. The Association also receives waste from private contractors.

 

The Dan Municipal Sanitation Association is leading the largest environmental movement in Israel. Its main purposes are:

 

• Treating household waste while streamlining and improving services.

• Developing the recycling park and its facilities to create energy from waste.

• Cooperating to rehabilitate Mount Hiriya.

• Environmental education.
