QCR helping innovative AFC Bournemouth off the pitch
24th Aug 2015
AFC Bournemouth have plenty of reasons to celebrate this week. They picked up their first win of the new Premier League season on Saturday, defeating West Ham United 3-4 in a thriller away from home. Back on home soil they are celebrating the installation of a QCR 1600 baler at their Vitality Stadium.
The innovation at the club has not just been restricted to their on the pitch antics. Off the pitch the club have invested in a large QCR 1600 baler. With around 11,500 fans piling into the stadium on matchdays, the club produce huge amounts of large cardboard boxes through their stadium catering; this results in overflowing bins and skips. The cardboard baler will compact these boxes, creating 300Kg bales, which will be collected for free by a local recycler. The need for many bins and skips will soon diminish.
It has been a crazy few years for Bournemouth. Back in 2008 they were in trouble with debt and scrapping away at the bottom of the Football League. Fast forward seven years and the club is now flying high in the Premier League and playing some fantastic football.
AFC Bournemouth can now look forward to making cost savings on their waste thanks to QCR. Our installation man Stuart even managed to get himself a pitchside photo in the basking sunshine - well done Stuart!
