Waste management firm 707 Resource Management has signed a 12-month contract to deal with Britannia Hotels waste.
Britannia, which owns 34 hotels, currently spends £500,000 handling its waste and 707 aims to reduce this figure by around 15 per cent.
707 managing director Graeme Rose said; Our team will be auditing the hotels one by one and recommending changes such as reducing the number of waste containers, introducing glass and cardboard recycling and, where suitable, putting in balers.
Because of 707s clear waste auditing and its transparent customer service reports and online accounts, Britannia awarded 707 with the contract.
Elena Tsvetkova of Britannias building division said: We are delighted that 707 has taken over our waste contract. Its becoming increasingly important for the leisure industry to be more environmentally aware and 707s aim to reduce the amount of waste we send to landfill is extremely important to us.
707 has already audited ten hotels so far, substantially reducing the waste bill at Liverpools Adelphi hotel. A significant amount of waste has been diverted from landfill by rolling out a recycling programme and installing a cardboard baler. Additionally, introducing glass and card recycling at International Hotel situated in Londons Docklands has saved Britannia around £10,000 each year.
