Waste solutions for restaurantsFamous chef uses QCR for his expanding business

This famous chef opened his first restaurant in Cornwall in the 1970s and since then has expanded his business throughout the county. He has built a business of individual restaurants and shops all with a celebrated reputation. Passionate about preserving the future and conscious of their impact on the environment, the business’s Environmental Policy has targeted a zero waste to landfill campaign and they chose QCR as their recycling patron. 


QCR initially conducted a survey of the various sites to establish which machines were best suited to reducing recyclables into bales based on waste types, volume, and site space. 13 balers were provided each one varying in size from a small QCR 102 baler to a vertical mill size baler. Each baler was recommended for a particular site based on the requirements of the kitchen and location.

Cardboard and plastic is crushed in the balers. All glass is recycled and food waste is disposed of this an anaerobic digestion. This process has reduced waste to landfill to the very minimum. Bales of cardboard and plastic are transferred to the central depot ready for collection and onward recycling.

The baling process is very easy. Cardboard boxes don’t need to be torn, folded or flattened, saving a huge amount of time and effort. Outside areas are kept clean and tidy because cardboard is placed straight into the baler.
