Bergmann Direct are a leading supplier of food waste disposal systems to NHS Scotland with our Eco-Smart Food Waste Dryer.

The Eco-Smart dries raw food waste overnight and turns a nasty, smelly waste stream into a sterile, dry residue overnight, reducing disposal costs by up to 80% and eliminating the need to fill (and wash out) bins with raw waste, risks from vermin of food waste left outside in bins, smells from food waste in bins in hot weather and the need to empty bins frequently. (See the right hand picture above which shows 25kg of dried food residue from 250kg of raw food waste dried overnight.)

NHS Lothian has the ES300 Eco-Smart at St John's Hospital, Livingston while NHS Tayside has two ES500 units at Ninewells hospital, Dundee (middle picture above), two ES150 units at Perth Royal Infirmary (picture left above) and one ES300 at Royal Victoria Hospital in Dundee.

NHS Highland has one ES300 at Raigmore hospital in Inverness.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde are the most recent NHS Scotland Health Board to opt for the Eco-Smart food waste dryer with installations at Glasgow Royal Infirmary, Gartnavel General and Royal Hospitals, Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley, Inverclyde Royal Hospital (all ES500 units), Leverndale Hospital (ES80), Vale of Leven Hospital and Stobhill Hospitals (ES150 units).
