Garbage Guzzler Digests Waste

PKL has taken on the distribution of the Garbage Guzzler, an aerobic waste digester that allows any business that produces organic waste to reduce its costs and waste disposal needs.

The Garbage Guzzler, which is manufactured in the UK, uses bacteria to reduce organic waste, including food, cardboard, paper packaging, coffee cups, horticultural waste, fats and oils, by 95 per cent.

The process can take as little as 24 hours, and leaves an output that can be used as soil improver, biomass fuel or can be put back through the machine to be reduced to virtually nothing.

There are two models available, one capable of digesting up to 200 Kg of waste per day and one which is capable of digesting up to 400 Kg of waste each day, although there is the capability to supply larger, more bespoke units if required.

PKL has taken on distribution of the Garbage Guzzler as part of its catering equipment portfolio. The company’s MD, Lee Vines, said: “We have seen across the UK that waste disposal is becoming a bigger cost to business. Green concerns are also becoming more of a driver behind the decisions companies make. However you choose to use it, the machine will help to reduce costs and greenhouse gas emissions, as less waste will lead to fewer waste collections, and vehicle movements associated with this.”

Customers will be able to buy the Garbage Guzzler direct from PKL, while it will also be available under a contract rental agreement.
