LISEBERG IN GOTHENBURG, SWEDEN, is the largest amusement park and the leading tourist attraction in Northern Europe. The broad range of rides, games, entertainment on the stage and the beautiful flower park attract 3 million visitors per year!
Liseberg Restaurants AB runs all restaurants, snack bars and ice cream parlors within the park and in preparation for the summer season it has invested in a brand new restaurant complex called “Bergs Salonger” with seats for 360 guests.
4000 visitors a day in peak season In the building Burger King, a sandwich bar and a pancake bakery share the same sitting area, which is furnished as an elegant town house in the early 1900s. It is quick service with style and each room has its own theme; the dining room, the library and the orangery.
Fredrik Löfgren, manager of the fast food division at Liseberg, anticipates up to 4000 visitors per day in peak season in July/August when the restaurant is open 12 hours a day. To be able to handle the waste from all of these guests efficiently, four TOM units have been strategically located in the sitting area indoors and one on the outdoor terrace:
“The best thing about TOM is the volume reduction
that results in less frequent bag switches. Before we had to change bags every 30 minutes and now it is sufficient to do it every two hours.
That gives our staff more time for other duties and most importantly, when less bags are hauled through the restaurant, our guests get to enjoy their meals in peace and quiet.”

Prevents waste from piling up
The sitting area has recycling points, where TOM takes care of all the non-recyclable waste. TOM suits the hygienic ambitions for the restaurant perfectly. It prevents waste from piling up at the recycling points and maintains the sitting area clean and proper at all times. TOM’s automatic touch free shutter keeps both the machine and the hands of the guests clean.
