Baby Jaws undercounter bottle crusher from Telegreen

29 July 2010 by

Regional brewer St Austell, a number of Irish bars, and London's Dorchester hotel are early adopters of Baby Jaws, the UK's first under-the-counter glass bottle crusher.

Also known as the PEL BB01 and a winner of the Shell Award for Innovation, Baby Jaws can reduce glass waste by 80% in pubs, restaurants and cafés. As well as cutting their waste-disposal costs, it also improves their relationship with residential neighbours annoyed by the clinking of empty bottles.

The low-energy machine uses a standard plug and operates at the low noise level of 52dB. Empty bottles are fed into a continuous feeder, with the cullet - or crushed glass - collected in a tray below. Baby Jaws stops operating when the tray contents reach 22kg in weight and needs emptying into strong bin liners for collection.

It is sold exclusively in the UK by Telegreen, a company set up by publican Gerry O'Boyle, who found that Baby Jaws solved the glass bottle problems at his Boogaloo music venue in Highgate, north London.
