A glass crusher is an ideal piece of recycling equipment for any business that produces large quantities of empty glass bottles. Those businesses that use a glass crusher normally come from the hospitality sector. Hotels, bars, restaurants, nightclubs, holiday parks, events, festivals and sports grounds all have to deal with empty glass bottles on a regular basis and without a glass crusher they can take up a lot of room and bin collections can be costly.
Glass bottles have the potential to overflow in bins when they are not crushed. This can be potentially hazardous as glass will fall out and smash on the ground. Secondly overflowing bins are an unwelcome sight for customers and they do not give out a positive vibe.
Installing a glass crusher can lessen glass quantities by 5:1, this reduces the amount of bins required on site and therefore saves money and increases space where the bins once stood.
There are two glass crusher options. Firstly a small glass crusher, which is designed to fit under the bar counter. This can handle up to 90 bottles per tray and is conveniently situated so staff don’t have to walk away to place empty bottles in a bin, this is a great time saver. The second glass crusher is much larger and works by placing a 140 litre bin inside the bottom part of the glass crusher. The empty bottles are then pushed down a chute and crushed, eventually landing in the bin. Around 680 bottles can fit into the bin when crushed.
A glass crusher is a convenient and effective machine. Convenient in that it takes seconds to place a bottle in the crusher and the machine can be located a few feet away so staff can continue to work behind the bar counter. It is effective as it heavily reduces glass quantities and bins as well as acting as a space saver.
