Airports produce a lot of waste including international items that may need quarantined or require special disposal methods. Food items, hazardous waste and other general waste from jets and terminals can be destroyed on-site.
While most small towns and municipal agencies have general waste disposal methods, there are times when special care needs to be taken. Elastec incinerators provide a save and clean method to dispose of excess waste.
Police agencies can utilize incinerators to dispose of confiscated narcotics, take-back drugs and waste from jails and prisons.

General Waste Incinerator Control Panel
The electronic control system automatically goes through the burn cycle with minimal operator input. The upper chamber pre-heats before the waste is burnt. Automatic door locking feature for safe loading and unloading of ash. Multi-lingual support is available.
The control panel is used to control and monitor the incinerator. The display can be switched to show either the remaining incineration time or the temperature of the incineration gases. The control panel has indication lamps that show when each diesel burner is in operation.
The automated system makes using the municipal waste incinerator as easy as using a household microwave. The solid-state design makes it easier to service in the field (compared to PLC units).
Drug Drop-Off Box
Elastec manufactures drug drop-off boxes that can be used in conjunction with either our Drug Terminator or General Waste Incinerators for take-back programs. The boxes can be set up at locations to collect expired and unused prescription drugs so that they can safely be incinerated. Our drug drop-off boxes can be painted or wrapped with graphics to suit the needs of your location. Each box has a lockable deposit door, retrieval door for emptying, and 4 bolt anchor holes in the base. Contact us for more information.
