Molok® Deep Collection™ is an innovative semi-underground collection method for waste, cooking grease, textiles, organics or recyclables. This system follows the rules of nature: compaction and coolness of the earth. The vertical, covered containers are two-thirds underground, staying cool and preventing odours. With gravity, compaction provides twice the container volume.

Bins are emptied with a crane, through the bottom of a reusable bag, using only 5% of the required land area compared to a front-load system. Eliminating the need for space for a fork collection truck means more area for parking or landscaping.

The FUTURE of waste collection, TODAY.
