Bottle Crusher

Glass Disposal

Does a Bottle Crusher Make Sense for my Business?

Empty glass bottles occupy precious space in the bar service area – space which more often than not could be put to more profitable uses like storing additional stock or extra lines.

• Managing empty glass bottles also takes up valuable staff time which is often at the expense of serving paying customers at the bar.

• Crushing reduces the total cost of managing waste glass, frees up valuable floor space both in the bar and in the waste glass storage area.

• Crushing waste glass bottles saves the environment – approximately 290kg of CO2 is saved for every one tonne of container glass recycled.

• Waste glass in cullet form does not generate complaints over ‘bottle clinking’ noise pollution often experienced when tipping whole bottles.

• Glass is 100% recyclable & can be recycled endlessly without a loss in quality making it a crucial raw material for manufacturing of fresh bottles.
