Glaslyn Court Nursing Home - Saving over £2,000 in a year

Increase in waste generation and its consequences

Situated on the outskirts of the rural village of Gilwern, UK, Glaslyn Court Nursing Home offers senior citizens over 50 home and nursing care.

Over the years, Glaslyn Court has evolved and expanded significantly, and with this expansion followed a natural increase in waste generation. The number of waste pickups and waste processing expenses have grown for the nursing home as a result of the increased waste volumes.

Waste challenges such as safety, space and hygiene

The management of waste presents several challenges that can significantly affect the day-to-day operations of a nursing home. These challenges include:

Constrained Waste Storage Capacity:
The limited availability of space for storing waste is a pressing concern, given the continual accumulation of waste.

Aesthetic and Sanitary Issues:
The build-up of waste not only detracts from the appearance of the facility but also poses potential health risks in a setting where hygiene and cleanliness are of utmost importance.

Safety Concerns:
Inadequately managed waste can block pathways, posing a risk to the safety of both residents and staff members.


Baler installed: Significant benefits in a short time

To address the above issues, Glaslyn Court turned to Mil-tek, and this engagement led to the installation of a Mil-tek pneumatic baler coupled with comprehensive staff training on its use.

The deployment of the baler has reaped significant benefits in a short span:

  • It has streamlined waste handling within the facility, reducing the need for external waste disposal trips and the labor involved in breaking down boxes.
  • It enabled the nursing home to cancel its monthly waste collection services, leading to savings of over £2,000 in the first year alone.
  • The new waste management system has also minimized the risk of vermin, enhancing the safety and hygiene of the nursing home environment.
