Waste Management Solutions have always claimed that we can save you money on your waste costs and we now have a prime example of how these savings can be achieved.

Brogans Spar is based in Bangor Erris, County Mayo. This Spar is owned and managed by Amanda Carabine. It is approximately 2500 square foot in size and employs 22 staff, both full and part time positions.

Waste Management Solutions met with Amanda back in March 2011. Up to March 2011 their waste was collected on a weekly basis and they were roughly using 3 x 1100L bins per week. They baled their cardboard and both cardboard and plastics were collected free of charge.

Waste Management Solutions recommended the installation of a Bin Compactor for compressing the 1100L bins. This solution would cut down on the number of waste collections and reduce the number of bins required.

Amanda Carabine reported “Since we purchased the Bin Compactor in early 2011 we have seen a dramatic decrease in our waste costs.”

The installation of the Bin Compactor reduced the number of 1100L bins required to two and collections we extended to every three weeks. This impacted greatly on the waste costs that Brogans Spar were paying, as you can see below:

Waste Bill March 2010 to March 2011 €4,300.12
Waste Bill March 2011 to March 2012 €1,271.52
Total Saving For Year = €3,028.60

As you can see from the figures above, their waste costs for the second year (after purchasing the Bin Compactor) were almost 70% less than the previous year and within one year they had saved the purchase cost of the Bin Compactor.

Commenting on the overall experience, Amanda Carabine “found Waste Management Solutions to be very easy to deal with, and they delivered the compactor as promised and gave our staff members on-site training on the use of the machine.”

Waste Management Solutions works closely with businesses to assess their existing waste management processes and recommend ways to increase recycling rates, minimise the amount of waste going to landfill and reduce waste costs.
