Amy’s Drive-Thru Corte Madera
Amy’s, the region’s new leading vegetarian fast serve restaurant, wanted to limit trash pick-ups and the number of trips that their staff would need to run trash across the drive-thru lane to the trash enclosure.
For landfill waste/trash, we placed our proven indoor stainless steel 700ss Power Packer Compactor which compacts 20-25 large trashbags into a manageable trash cube that is then transported and lifted into the local hauler’s 1.5 yard rear load bin. The 700 limits trips across the drive-thru to just once or twice per day while limiting pick-ups for this high volume restaurant to just 3 pick-ups per week!
For cardboard, the client chose our small footprint Bramidan B-5 baler which crushes 150 boxes into an easy-to-handle 185-200 lb bale. This labor-saving solution eliminated the need to have multiple cardboard recycle bins, and makes it so staff does not waste time flattening boxes
Because trash is only picked up 3 days per week instead of 6 days, Amy’s saves $10,000s per year while also reducing carbon-emitting emissions from multiple garbage truck trips from the restaurant to the dump.
