RPF(*1) and plastic pallets recycled from waste RPF(*1) and plastic pallets recycled from waste

The Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake caused enormous damage in 1995. The earthquake generated an unprecedented amount of disaster waste. The piles of waste hindered efforts for recovery and reconstruction. Daiei Kankyo itself was located in the disaster area. In order to dispose of the disaster waste as soon as possible, the company took various measures such as procuring disaster waste disposal equipment that was not yet available in Japan at that time. Even so, it took three years to dispose of the disaster waste. The technology and know-how gained through this experience has been passed on by employees of Daiei Kankyo. Whenever a disaster occurs, the company dispatches its employees to dispose of disaster waste by working together with local business in the same industry and with residents. Furthermore, as preparation for normal times, Daiei Kankyo has entered into disaster waste disposal agreements with local governments throughout Japan and has established cooperative systems in the event that disaster waste is generated. In recent years, Daiei Kankyo has served as a consultant and received high praise for its support in improving the effectiveness of the disaster waste disposals plan formulated by each local government.

Daiei Kankyo has its own selection criteria for construction machinery used at disposal sites, such as environmental performance and productivity, but also respects and incorporates the opinions of machine operators regarding aspects such as comfort and ease of operation.
