Reducing hotel waste through effective waste management

The hotel industry, like many others, is continually looking for ways to be more environmentally conscious and works towards reducing hotel waste and increasing waste recycling. Issues are driven by customers, the need to reduce costs and a desire to ensure their brand conforms to current thinking. Stakeholders from suppliers to clients expect businesses to do the right thing and in a competitive market no-one can afford to lag behind. Far from it, few will now deny that a focus on reducing waste, increase recycling and adhering as far as possible to sound environmental principles can only be good for business both in terms of costs as well as making staff and customers feel happier.

These days customers expect hotels, even small establishments, to be good responsible corporate citizens – waste is ultimately a cost for the customer! So they are not surprised by requests to hang towels up and only put them in the bath if they require to be changed – or to have lights in the room that only work with the keycard. But what about waste behind the scenes? Food and packaging waste are potentially major issues, and significant costs.
