O’Gormans Supervalu in Kingscourt County Cavan is a large supermarket that has been recently refurbished in the past few years. It provides a vital service to the local area and also offers extra amenities such as off licence, deli, butchery and bakery. The new site is an impressive example of modern retail architecture.
As such it was important for waste management to be properly taken care of to ensure the area was kept clean. To deal with their waste materials O’Gormans chose two Gradeall machines a GV500 and G-eco 50’s.
The GV500 was installed to deal with the large volumes of cardboard waste the business produces. While the smaller G-eco 50S is there to manage the more modest amounts of plastic packaging waste. Both machines are situated in a dedicated waste management area on the facility.
"The GV500 has been a great piece of machinery, everyone finds it very easy to use and it just means that we can be sure our old cardboard is kept organised into tidy bales until it is collected"
