With a recent promotion to the Premier League, this football club saw their waste streams increase due an upsurge in crowd attendances and a higher demand for merchandise from the club shop.


The club contacted QCR and a free site survey was undertaken straight away. The most noticeable problem was the waste cardboard, which was put in bins; these however often overflowed and a general waste skip was in place to handle the remaining boxes. With the installation of a cardboard baler, the bins which handled the boxes could be removed off site and the skip could continue as a general waste skip only. The decision was taken to install a QCR 1600 cardboard baler. Bins have been removed off site and skip collections have significantly reduced, this has produced big cost savings and increased space on site.
