Does a Bottle Crusher Make Sense for my Business?

Questions to Ask When Considering a Bottle Crusher
What is a glass bottle crusher?
An industrial glass bottle crusher is a stand-alone machine which crushes, breaks or smashes waste glass bottles or jars typically produced within the hospitality industry. Crushing waste glass bottles reduces their volume by 80% and cuts the costs associated with managing, storing and disposing of the waste glass.
How does an under-counter glass bottle crusher work?
Waste glass bottles are fed into the bottle crusher where they are smashed or crushed into small fragments called cullet. 86% of the cullet produced by a RDI Waste Reduction Equipment bottle crusher is above 8mm, making it 100% reprocessable into new glass bottles. Additional bonus: bottle collection just became that bit more stylish.
What are the different types of glass bottle crushers available?
Our RDI Waste Reduction Equipment offers a range of waste glass bottle crushers which span from the single-feed ‘Baby Jaws’ under-the-counter machine to the industrial volume fed ‘Mega Jaws’ which is capable of crushing up to 680 bottles in about 10 minutes. Glass collection and disposal has never been easier.
What happens to the waste glass?
The crushed glass or “cullet” is taken from the bar to the waste glass storage area where it’s generally stored in a 140 Litre wheelie bin until collection by the waste management company. So you can rest easy and use that storage space for something more sensible than just empty bottles for collection.
