Chapter 4: Waste

This section looks at the benefits of reducing, reusing and recycling waste – both to the environment and to your bottom line. It examines the different kinds of waste produced in a hotel, and how you can keep them out of landfill.

Despite a massive increase in recycling rates over recent years, consumer society continues to generate large quantities of waste.

Poorly managed waste can pose a threat to health, the quality of our environment and places a burden on businesses and national economics. As a result, the management and minimisation of waste have moved up the agenda for any efficient commercial operation.
