Claremont Club & Spa, A Fairmont Hotel is a California landmark and one of America’s iconic luxury hotels. Ideally nestled in the Oakland Hills, this newly restored urban resort is uniquely positioned to offer the best of the Bay Area. With our sustainability and equipment expertise, we saved them over $26,000 per year. 

The Claremont initially came to us with a back-of-house noise issue with garbage trucks creating loud disturbances to guests early in the mornings. To solve this issue and enhance their guests’ experiences, we conducted a sustainability review and provided them with the right equipment to meet their operation goals.

With one of our Bramidan next generation B-5 cardboard balers, we streamlined their recycling process. Additionally, we coordinated with a local recycler to better manage their recycling than the original hauler could. With one of our P-4 compactors, we eliminated their overflowing, unsightly waste, further raising their guests’ experiences with the hotel environment.

From Jeff Muscat, the Director of Engineering, “Your expertise in dealing with our different waste streams and haulers while providing the right equipment for our operation has helped us accomplish our goals. Your small B-5 Cardboard Baler saves us mountains of time and space dealing with cardboard. Your P-4 compactor is easy to use and packs an amazing amount of waste into a small footprint. The compactor eliminates the overflowing trash issue and what was an unsightly view for our guests and a pain for staff. Thank you for your time and patience in putting this project together for us. Thanks again, Mike.”
