Case Study 1
Our customer a Major Restaurant Group in the UK had numerous premises
where space and disposal costs had become on issue. Due to increase
in landfill costs and changes in E.U. Recycling Regulations a review
of their disposal methods was under taken.
Each site would be surveyed and dealt with on an individual basis.
The initial site had a system of 10 x 1100 litre wheelie bins emptied
daily at a cost of £8.00 per bin, with a weekly cost of £560.00
and an annual disposal cost of £29,100.00.
After surveying the site LWT Ltd suggested installing a Cardboard
Baler which would immediately reduce the waste going to landfill
by 50%. As the cardboard would be collected free of charge the costs
to our client for disposal will also be reduced by 50 %. By recycling
the cardboard E.U. targets were also being achieved.
The remaining general waste still required 5 bins daily. A PS 8100
Roto Compactor which takes a similar floor area of to that of a
1100 litre bin was then installed. The Roto compacts the equivalent
of 8 – 10 bins (£64-£80) in to one bag. The disposal
cost of this bag is £30.00.
As well as saving approximately £20,000.00 per annum on direct
disposal cost, valuable space was freed up. The management were
also impressed, as the changes lead to a cleaner and more efficient
back of house.
Case Study 2
Our client a prominent London landmark was aware of the changes
in environmental regulations and wanted to undertake a recycling
programme which would meet these requirements. The company compactor
was being uplifted every 10 days at a cost of approximately £489.00
per lift, 36 times per year equating to £17,604.00 per annum.
324 tons of waste per annum was previously produced of which 50%
was cardboard. By installing a Mill Size baler their general waste
going to landfill was reduced by 50% saving approximately £9,000.000
per annum. With the Mill Size Baler producing a revenue of approx
£30.00 per ton at 162 ton per annum a further saving of £5,670.00
could be realised.
With a substantial saving of over 80% on original disposal costs,
the clients has not only met their environmental target but has
also produced a saving of £14,000 +.
