WSG TriSorter - Specialized Garbage Chute Extension

With increased building legislation and environmental awareness, high-rise residents expect their building to be environmentally friendly and to provide recycling facilities that are as convenient as garbage disposal.

At Ellipse we take recycling seriously.


The WSG TriSorter System is a specialized garbage chute extension that utilizes the building's existing waste equipment. The system directs residents' materials into one of three existing recycling or waste containers. By installing a WSG TriSorter Recycling System, building residents will have the convenience of garbage, recycling and organics disposal using the existing chute on their floor. This eliminates the burden of carrying materials to a recycling depot located somewhere in (or outside of) the building.


Retrofittable - Easily retrofitted into most buildings with minimal disruption to residents.

Organic Ready - Dispose of organics into the chute, avoiding the added hassle of transporting materials through the building.

Proven Garbage Savings - Third-party studies show that retrofitted buildings decrease garbage going to landfill and associated tipping fees by increasing recycling recovery rates.

Preserves Common Elements - Reduces the wear and tear of common elements by having all materials collected in your existing garbage chute — saves elevators, carpets, and wall coverings.

Cleanliness - Promotes an environmentally friendly, sanitary community by not having to store potentially flammable recyclables on each floor.

Labour Savings - Eliminates expensive floor-to-floor collection by maintenance staff.

Increased Building Value - Becomes a valuable cost-saving, environmental amenity and selling feature of the building. Flexible payment plans include leasing to reduce capital costs, and installment terms.

Support - Maintained by one of the largest service and support fleets in Canada, and backed by our factory-trained technicians. Educational support provided by our staff using the latest environmental education techniques.

Value-Added Building Services - Available pressurized garbage chute cleaning, odour control systems, preventative maintenance programs and waste equipment life-cycle analysis.
