Greater Glasgow and Clyde NHS has opted for the Eco-Smart from Bergmann Direct acrossÂ eight hospitals including Glasgow Royal Infirmary, GartnavelÂ General and Inverclyde RoyalÂ hospitals.Â Eight dryers were installedÂ inÂ early Summer 2017 and another three are toÂ be installed in October 2017. The equipmentÂ was chosen in preference to three alternative solutions.
Greater Glasgow and Clyde NHS operates a ‘cook freeze’ meal system with two hospitals producing meals for all the others. Food waste was previously going either into general waste at ward level or being returned to the kitchen for disposal via a macerator and disposal unit which flushed food waste into the sewers: a methodology which is now banned in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.
There are now 19 Eco-Smart units at NHS Scotland hospitals. Contact Bergmann Direct today to find out how we can help supply your hospital with eco-smart food waste dryers and other waste and recycling equipment. CallÂ 0845 226 5803, or fill out our contact form here.
