The Cheese Shed
Martin Mather is the director for the Cheese Shed based near Norwich. They distribute cheese and other food items to a range of delicatessens, hotels and shops.
As with most items the products from their suppliers are delivered in large volumes of cardboard boxes. Martin was taking the boxes outside on a dry day, to the waste ground at the rear of the warehouse and burning it. This meant significant volumes were stacking up on wet days and the local authority finally advised him that it was not an appropriate disposal method.
While he was delivering products to customers’ hotels he noticed the balers supplied by Landfill Alternatives and others and asked them about which was best, the pros and cons and how easy they were to work. He chose an LFA 51 baler from Landfill Alternatives.
This now sits inside his warehouse and as the boxes are generated they are thrown straight in. Eventually a 50 kg block is made, stacked on a pallet outside and a local recycler collects this free of charge as they drive by.
