American Campus, Blackwell Hall at UC Berkeley

UC’s Zero Waste Director asked BATC to take a look at the brand new American Campus dormitory building on Durant Ave in Berkeley.

Coordinating with the Zero Waste team and American Campus, BATC provided the proven K-pac chute fed automatic compactor for landfill, a Bramidan X25 Low Profile baler for cardboard boxes – think Amazon – and custom-built compost bins to fit beneath the compost chute.

 

The systems work great! Thanks, American Campus, for your business!

UC Merced – Merced, CA

UC Merced is expanding!

The University, through our landscape contracting partner, Brightview, installed 127 Solar Powered E-cube compacting waste/compost/recycling units across campus.

 

These units pack right into a Toter can for easy handling, have a built-in monitoring system and because they are closed systems the E-cubes keep critters out – keeping the campus looking great!

Deer Valley HS – Antioch, CA

The Facilities team at Antioch School District asked BATC to develop a program to replace the district’s old leaking compactors.

Well, Deer Valley is a premier site.

We installed a new Nedland Self Contained compactor with a cart tipper to save backs and an enclosed dog house to eliminate odors and pests. The system is quiet and operates smoothly.

Nedland’s full door seals eliminate any liquid leakage, so now the compactor area is clean and odor free.

Martin Luther King Student Union – UC Berkeley

The new MLK Student Union at UC Berkeley was overflowing with cardboard boxes. Foodservice, book store, pantry and meeting rooms were generating hundreds of boxes a day.

With dock space at a premium and the fire hazard of loose cardboard stored in a public garage raising red flags, the Zero-Waste team asked BATC to provide our Bramidan B-6030 baler. The B6030 bales 700-2,000 lb bales that the Zero Waste team brings back to their yard.

 

Bay Area Trash Compactor coordinated with a premier paper recycler to come pick up the bales at the yard twice a month and reimburse the University for the cardboard commodity.

BATC is helping UC Berkeley close the recycling loop and make money – simple.

UC Davis Clean Caps – Davis, CA

UC Davis Clean Caps – Davis, CA

BATC has installed E-cube Labs’ new Clean Cap sensors at the UC Davis Mondavi Center for the Arts. UC Davis custodial staff was looking for a way to better manage their team and eliminate over servicing waste/recycling receptacles that were on the outskirts of campus.

The Clean Caps use ultrasonic waves to measure can fullness – eliminating false readings that traditional infrared sensors provide when sunlight interrupts the beam.

The caps are mounted on a heavy-duty bracket and come solar or long-life battery power.

Needless to say, the staff at UC Davis love them.

Bishop O’Dowd High School – Oakland, CA

 

Money for Students, Not Trash: Bishop O’Dowd High School Saves $32K

Problem: Bishop O’Dowd High School in Oakland had a tight loading dock with overflowing cardboard boxes, landfill waste, and recycle bins. Plus, they were paying over $4,600/month for trash and recycling.

Solution: We installed our Bramidan B-5 Baler and Summit S-V2 Compactor. The baler crushes 1,050 boxes into an easy-to-handle bale for recycling, thus eliminating a huge 7 yard recycle bin. The S-V2 allows B.O.D. to compact 12 yards of trash into a 2 yard bin. The system also allows the school to swap bins, compacting compost, yard trimmings, and recycling into different 2 yard bins.

Result: B.O.D. saves over $32,000 annually on waste and recycling while opening up their loading dock and cleaning up the appearance of the school.
