Shopping Centres and Food Courts

food waste dryers for food courts

The Eco-Smart Food Waste Dryer is a perfect solution for food waste generated by restaurants, and other food outlets in shopping centres. Landlords and facilities managers can save up to 80% in food waste disposal costs and reduce the number of wheelie bins substantially.

Typically, the tenant will take their waste to an underground car park or waste area for the whole site.  There may be a compactor or wheelie bins for different waste streams. Often, the space is tight with too many wheelie bins to manage. Food waste sits around in wheelie bin creating a smell and attracting vermin. 

The Eco-Smart Food Waste Dryer sterilizes the waste overnight and reduces the volume and weight by around 80%. As a landlord you save on disposal costs and you reduce the number of wheelie bins substantially. It is a great solution.

How Much Food Waste Is Produced?

For example, different outlets will generate different weights of food waste. This should be measured over a busy period and aggregated to give an average and peak volume. Knowing the total weight will allow you to choose the right model to process all the food waste generated by all tenants.

Separation of Food Waste

The Eco-Smart Food Waste Dryer can cope with bio-degradable plastic (made from PLA), cutlery, coffee cups and compostable food waste bags. Tenants need to separate food waste from the general waste. The best way to do this is to provide food waste caddies with handles which can be brought to the dryer. The separation of cardboard and other recyclables from the general waste is standard practice these days. However, they may not be used to separating their food waste from the general waste. It doesn’t take long for this habit to be formed, particularly if you are providing caddies.
