Now, they also have BATC’s breakthrough Summit V-95 Toter compactor.

This simple system compacts trash, compost and recyclables right into a Toter can. At the Franciscan, they use the unit to save space and save labor – reducing pick-ups by 66%!

Chicken Ranch Casino – Sonora, CA


It Pays to Bale your Cardboard

We installed our Nedland Self Contained Compactor with our unique new cellular monitoring system at the venerable Chicken Ranch Casino to eliminate pests and odors from the back of their building.

The compactor packs 80 yards of waste into the compactor and the monitoring system notifies management and the hauler when the unit is ready for pick-up.

Being three hours from our shop is no problem, as we can troubleshoot and make adjustments to the compactor from our office computer!

Additionally, the Ranch installed our Harmony M60 STD cardboard baler to eliminate the overflow of cardboard bins and the tedious need for staff to flatten boxes. Now, staff simply open the door, drop a cardboard box in, and walk away.

The baler delivers 1,000 lb. bales, which are then picked up by a local recycler who then pays the Chicken Ranch $60-$100/ton for their waste!

Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch – St. Helena, CA


Farmstead on Road to Sustainability

When Stephen Barber, Executive Chef and Director of Culinary Operations at Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch in St. Helena, called seeking our expertise, we were honored.

Napa Valley’s leader in sustainable farm-to-table cuisine sought to reduce the number of trips the garbage company made to the restaurant to decrease CO2 emissions from the garbage truck, clean up the trash/recycling area, and also slash their trash costs.

BATC installed our low-profile S-V2 compactor and tucked it into the small trash area. Now, with our compactor, the garbage company only shows up once a week! Another successful installation with a sustainability-minded customer: that’s why we are in business.
