Waste Management Company, 707, Discusses Waste Management in Hotel Kithens

Nov. 29, 2014 - PRLog -- The managing director of 707 Resource Management, David Adams, has recently published an article which discusses the issues and challenges surrounding waste management in hotel kitchens. The article aims to identify the challenges faced by hotels, and to propose appropriate, cost-effective solutions.

Kitchen waste in the hotel sector is a particular issue due to the large volume of waste that is produced. Food waste itself represents a cost to the hotel industry of £318 million each year. David Adams identifies issues with the disposal of this waste, including separating food waste from other waste and finding adequate space to store the waste.

He then goes on to discuss the environmental implications that this waste may have, placing the onus on hoteliers to take greater interest in where this waste will end up. He states 'Where will the food waste end up? In a hole in the ground (landfill) or will it be used to make energy in a biomass facility? I would argue that there is a real opportunity for the hotel industry to implement an effective strategy with separate food waste collections.'

The article then moves on to provide advice for Hotels, from David Adams, an expert in the waste management sector. The solutions discussed include reviewing menus to reduce waste in the first place, and having clearly marked bins in an effort to improve waste separation. These solutions are effective in reducing the waste produced, decreasing the level of waste sent to landfill and reducing the costs for the Hotels.

David aims to encourage hotels to make a difference, whilst reassuring them that it will not be an expensive process. He states '707 believe that effective waste and recycling management doesn’t have to cost the earth. If every hotelier took these steps to improve their business and costs, we could certainly improve the amount of food diverted from landfill'
