The Centurion Best Western is a large resort that incorporates a hotel, restaurant, golf course and spa. The company run events including weddings, parties, meetings, and other functions which generate waste, e.g. food waste, tissue, plastic, paper, etc… Before the purpose built XO was installed, 4 individual 1100 litre bins were collected twice a week, incurring a high annual waste disposal cost, which is only increasing year on year.
Spread over an area of 1.02 million square feet, the 515,000 – square foot facility, currently employing 555 people, specialises in the manufacturing, canning and packaging of branded products. Items include powder milk, chocolate and bottled water. The Middle East has been identified as a region of tremendous growth potential for the client, and expanding their operation to meet growing market demands also requires sufficient provisions regarding their environmental impact, specifically their waste management.
Home to the city’s Major League Baseball franchise the stadium is located on 17 acres of land and has a capacity 36,740 people. As well as baseball, the venue hosts soccer matches, fundraising galas and other events. A variety of foods are sold at this venue producing food and packaging waste that is compacted and removed from site at high cost.
They are the first park globally to achieve the ‘Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design’ gold certificate. Research into their waste disposal lead the client and Advetec to undertake an XO demonstration during a 2017 Major Baseball game to showcase the reduction ability on food waste.
