QCR GC01 Undercounter Glass Bottle Crusher

QCR GC01 Undercounter Glass Bottle Crusher

The QCR GC01 is a small glass crushing machine designed to fit in a small space such as under a bar counter, in a stockroom or in a storeroom. This small glass crusher will turn empty glass bottles into glass cullet. This glass recycling equipment is sometimes referred to as a glass bottle smasher machine or a glass bottle breaker machine.

Key Features

  • Reduces glass bottle volumes by up to 5:1
  • Crushes up to 90 bottles into sturdy collection box with hinged lid for safe transportation
  • Handles bottles up to 11cm in diameter (a standard 750ml wine bottle is approx. 7.5cm)
  • Single feed machine for low/medium volumes of bottles
  • Small compact footprint (similar to that of an under counter fridge)
  • Insulated to minimise noise
  • Crushes glass bottles into small cullet pieces which are fully recyclable
  • The full boxes of crushed bottles (weighing approx. 14-17kg each) can be safely stacked on a sack truck when being transferred to your bin store as they have robust hinged lids

What type of business could benefit from this type of Commercial Glass Recycling Machine?

This model of glass bottle crusher has been designed for all types of hospitality business with low/medium volumes of empty bottles including pubs, restaurants, nightclubs, hotels, cafés, sporting venues and events venues.  It's important to note that this machine handles bottles up to 11cm in diameter, therefore if your venue sells drinks in larger bottles such as Champagnes, we recommend you look at a machine with a larger aperture such as the GC90.

  • Frees up space within the bar area previously occupied by empty bottles
