PEL Guide to Buying a Glass Bottle Crusher

The PEL Waste Reduction Equipment Guide to Buying a Waste Glass Bottle Crusher will help hotels, bars, restaurants or any business producing waste glass in the course of their operations to chose the correct bottle crusher for their needs.

The best approach to manage, store and dispose of waste glass bottles is a well debated subject amongst the many bar, restaurant and hotel owners in the hospitality industry. The generally accepted practice is to collect empty glass bottles in a bottle bin which, when full, is wheeled through the bar and into a bottle storage area where the bottles are sorted and eventually collected by a waste management company who charge for that service.

The current process is labour intensive and more often than not, happens at the expense of customer service. Moving waste glass bottles means a relatively small quantity of glass and a large quantity of air (up to 80% of an empty glass bottle is occupied by air) is transported from the serving area to an often cluttered waste glass storage location. 

A glass bottle crusher can alleviate a number of these problems.  Crushing glass bottles as they are poured or as they are returned from the floor reduces their physical volume by up to 80% and eliminates the majority of labour involving in their handling. Crushing the bottles in the bottle storage area also reduces the manual handling and dramatically reduces the storage space requirements for those bottles. Overall reducing waste glass bottle volume by crushing allows staff to concentrate on customer service, reduces waste glass bottles handling costs and potentially frees up valuable floor space for other more profitable uses

The PEL Waste Reduction Equipment guide to buying a bottle crusher provides advice to businesses contemplating a bottle crusher for managing their waste glass bottles. It explains the purpose of a bottle crusher and highlights the important questions to ask when considering such an acquisition.
