About This File

Short description:

You can find them in any village in my native country: Small public sites called ”Wertstoffsammelstelle“ (small recycling site), where people can dispose of the garbage they produce at home by sorting it according to material and putting it into the respective containers. I’ve lotted such a public recycling site for SimCity 4 (since I couldn’t find a believable English translation, I’ve just kept its German name), especially to provide a small garbage disposal facility for village-like settings. In-game, it works like an incineration plant – it basically just removes trash from your city – just with lower values and without producing power. Unfortunately, the stench makes sure that this building has a negative park effect, thus, it shouldn’t be placed near high-wealth estates. Yet pollution values are kept low and it does its job. The public recycling site provides 4 low-wealth civil jobs, therefore, it requires road access. It can be found in the sanitation menu.

Please refer to the Readme for further information.


Available languages:

English, German (both Readme and files). The name of the plugin is in German, however, both readme and description are available entirely in English.



SFBT Essentials: required for the trash containers.

Very resourceful!  Small civic lots such as this one are a good way to sneak a service into a rural area that might not otherwise have it.  It beats having to string together a bunch of neighbor deals across multiple city tiles in such an area.  Nice work, 11241036! *:thumb:

      SM2 Trash and Burn.
      A massive garbage handling facility but also a power generating station. (waste to energy)
      Here the trash is incinerated and the heath generated by the furnaces is used to create steam which in turn runs in to a turbine generator thus creating energy.
      Lot size 10X6
      Handling capacity 50,000 tons per month.
      Power generated at peak 6,500
      Plop cost 7500
      Power used 8
      Water used 60
      Note - It can be used stand alone or in conjunction with SM2 Trash Dumper. The base textures are a match. If you wish to do so then refer to the picture included in this zip.

      SM2 Trash Dumper
      When garbage is sent to an incinerator, it usually gets there by rail if its too far.
      This is such a facility.
      Garbage filled railcars are pushed on a ramp to a device that tips them in order to unload the trash.
      The Dumper is made with several instances of the model and then by timing them you get a sort of animation.
      The lot on itself is non functional and the RRW DTR rail will only connect visually therefore you should connect it to your main rail line by creating a spur.
      It looks great on its own or if you want to, you can plop it in conjunction with SM2 Trash and Burn for an even greater look. (refer to included pics)
      You will find it under the rail menu.

      This lot is a recycle center, made first by Caem and re-edited by me. Comparating Caem's file, this one looks more industrial. All credits must be given for Caem, for having made the Tetrapack Recycling Center's model.
      The original Tetrapack recycling center is on the following link: http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/13638-caem-tetrapack-recycling-center/
      Moreover, the game's default undrivable recycle truck will be available on the UDI mod.

      As Caem's one, this lot can take 35% of the trash generated by 1.000.000 sims. It cost 1.000$ and produce money depending of your waste.
      For recycle trucks: http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/11129-peg-refuse-relocation-kit/
      All credits for that dependency must be given for pegasus (PEG team) for having made the new recycle trucks. Really great job!

      For hundreds of years, Sim-kind labored under the belief that the world was round. But then, as any schoolchild will tell you, Simlumbus set off to sail around the world in his three ships; the Simna, the Simta & the Santa Simria. He sailed off the edge, into the Abyss and was never heard from again. And that's why nothing is named after him today.
      With the modern invention of aviation and orthographic gaming views, we can now clearly see the edge of our world. Today, we never attempt to navigate beyond it without the protection of The Yellow Arrow. Some scientists... and far too many philosophers, have pondered as to what lies at the bottom of The Abyss. But even today, no one really knows and most of us just don't care.
      Capitalizing on this general uncaring spirit, Pegadyne Industries has developed the new Garbage Chute... a small & affordable refuse disposal system that simply tosses our trash over the side. Why allow it to pile up when we can just as easily chuck it into the Abyss? Oh sure, the environmentalists are all in a huff... claiming that the Abyss will be ruined for future generations. And of course, a few attorneys have filed lawsuits claiming to represent the 'Denizens of The Abyss'. But the primary concern has been focused on what actually happens to the trash.
      One popular theory is that it simply burns up in the fires of Hell. But federally subsidized research, supported by historic maps that clearly state that "Here There Be Dragons...", indicates that these dragons consider garbage to be a 'delicacy' and delightfully gobble it up with no complaint.
