Waste Management for Hotels & Restaurants

Waste Management for Hotels & RestaurantsEffective waste management begins with identifying the sources, types and quantity of waste your hospitality business produces. Hotels and Restaurants generate a lot of waste - from food, packaging, and waste water from toilets, kitchens and laundries. By taking action to minimise waste you will save money and achieve sustainable waste management.


The three “R”s of Waste Management

REDUCE the amount of waste produced by your business. For example, refillable dispensers can replace soap, lotion, shampoo and conditioner bottles. Buy in bulk to reduce packaging. Take some time to consider how you can reduce waste in your business.

REUSE by finding ways to use something you would normally throw away. For example, donate unused food to local charities if available in your area, use old towels as cleaning cloths. Have a look at your current practices and identify areas where items can re-used rather than thrown away.

RECYCLE as much as possible to save money and the environment. Before you throw it away, ask yourself – can it be recycled? Recyclable items include:

  • glass bottles and jars
  • cardboard
  • plastic bottles
  • food and drink cans
  • printer cartridges
  • electrical items

When purchasing items buy recycled where possible – office paper, toilet paper, napkins and menu paper are all available using recycled materials, to name a few.

A successful recycling plan is well worth the effort, with resulting cost savings, good company PR, and you will be taking care of the environment at the same time.
