Kitchen waste is an inevitable part of preparing meals. Sometimes you end up with fairly substantial quantities of scraps and peelings, all of which has to be recycled together with whatever food people leave on their plates. Hygiene has to be the number one priority when you're collecting and disposing of kitchen scraps and leftovers. But at the same time, you need a process that is fast, simple and economical to run. Yet many commercial kitchens still use buckets and tubs to collect waste, even though this is clearly not the most cost-effective, hygienic or efficient approach.
An open system without a collection tank – such as the AZP 80 from MEIKO GREEN waste solutions – can be a huge help when it comes to eliminating unpleasant odours, tackling hygiene risks, and dealing with waste that is too wet to transport.

With this food waste collection system, the following various disposal alternatives are made possible:
- composting plant
- biogas plant
- sewage treatment
The restaurant food waste is either fed via a flushing trough or directly into the grinding mechanism. This grinding mechanism consists of a rotating grinding disc with sieve ring, pump housing and motor. The grinded food waste is continuously directed to the de-watering press, where it is compacted and de-watered to a large extent. A volume reduction of up to 85 % is obtainable! The water used for the flow system is continuously re-circulated by means of a heavy duty pump.
There are a multitude of planning possibilities allowing an adaptation to almost each constructional and organizational requirements: f. ex. several grinding mechanisms can be coupled with one de-watering press, even if these individual stations are located on different floors.
With this compact unit the grinding mechanism and de-watering press are installed separately, so that the grinding mechanism(s) are installed where the waste actually arises (f. ex. in the preparation zone or wash-up area), whereas the de-watering press is installed directly in the waste disposal room.
Restaurant food waste is transported to the garbage room in a hygienic way via pipelines without intermediate storage.
