EVERYBODY LOVES WINSTON ["Winston" is the name Chik'n has given to their LFC in the kitchen]. . . . Winston does what he does because sending food to landfill is just plain wrong, producing methane which is 72 times worse for the atmosphere than carbon dioxide. The food we feed to Winston comes out carbon neutral so we are leaving as little footprint on the environment as we can.
It’s the right thing to do. It does not make sense to discard the waste food on a landfill and other restaurant owners should be doing this.
The LFC has helped our operation become cleaner as well as saving the environment. We have had no problems with the machine and we are always pleased that there is no smell from the machine.
So far, 7.4 tons of food waste have been disposed. One of the biggest benefits to the staff is the LFC limits the amount of waste that must be transported out to the dumpster for landfill disposal.
From my desk, I can see how much waste we are adding to the LFC by the hour, day, week, and month. I am driving our organization to zero waste so the weighing capability and remote reporting are important to me.
The environment is Fujitsu’s prime concern, however most of what we do to support the environment has a long term positive impact on our bottom line. We believe the payback on the LFC-70 will be 24 months or less, due to the reduction of trash going to the landfill.
[We] have been able to divert tons of post and prep food to landfills and reduce our waste weight from going to the landfill as well as our cost of waste dumped per event and non-event days.
