No space for loose waste in the storage
The five units in Bergs Salonger are not the only TOMs at Liseberg. At a different fast food location and in its neighboring ice cream parlor, there are another five. Compared with traditional waste receptacles it is a great advantage that the volume of the waste in the full bags from TOM is already reduced, so that there is no need to compact the bags elsewhere afterwards.
Most important is the volume reduction at the other fast food location up on a hill where the space in the waste storage is very limited. Mr Löfgren comments that no baler would fit in the storage and there is no room for voluminous bags of loose waste.
Liseberg has successfully been using front-end waste compactors of an earlier model from Orwak in the park for several years. They are now also very happy with their new investment in ten units of TOM for the summer season. Mr Löfgren comments that TOM has a beautiful design and more features. The guests, particularly the young ones, are excited about the machines, as something happens; the shutter opens, when they are approaching TOM.
“This waste handling system is ideal in the fast food and theme park setting, specifically here at Liseberg, where the system is under such high pressure. There
are very few places in Scandinavia with a comparable stream of guests.”
Fredrik Löfgren, manager of the Liseberg fast food division
