Site Analysis for a Typical Community Recycling Centre
The analysis diagram on the left identifies and analyzes
sixteen recycling depot components and diagrams their relationships. (left)
These relationships are then applied to a real site and further examined in terms of site users, (tour groups, shoppers, dropping-offers, staff and trucking contractors) flexibility of the site to respond to changing use throughout the week (weekdays, weekends, evenings, peak drop off times) and flows of materials (recyclables, inorganic, organic, hazardous, C&D) and of circulation (flows) of vehicles and people through the site. Some of these maps illustrating "Flows" are shown below.
Flows of residential drop off traffic and goods
Flows of pedestrian groups
Flow of off-site trucking contractors
