Collaboration with Broxburn Bottlers for boosting safety

We were delighted to be given the opportunity to collaborate with Broxburn Bottlers on a project to safeguard employees and their surroundings from broken glass. This resulted in the creation of a steel Auto Dumping Container on castors, modified to include a lid with brush cut out. This entry system keeps any broken bottles safely within the container, ready for safe disposal.

Auto Dumping Containers


The auto dumping containers have been great for disposing of glass safely. They are easy to manoeuvre, one person can manage so they can be used close to where they are needed. The main benefit is the ease of emptying with no risk to staff from broken glass. The robust construction also means they are durable - previous plastic containers constantly needed replacing due to the damage glass can cause.

The auto dumping container advantage

Employee safety is of paramount importance to Broxburn Bottlers. In addition to the safe glass disposal mechanism, the Auto Dumping Container is designed for minimal worker involvement: no wires, no climbing – it is fully automatic, allowing workers to mobilise form inside a forklift truck.
