EPA urges hotels to recycle more

The Irish Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced that it will start a new green project for the hotel and hospitality sector. It will work with individual hotels in Ireland over the next four years to tackle waste and increase recycling.

By the end of the year the EPA hopes to recruit 150 of Irelands largest hotels to help them to make environmental improvements. More than 70 hotels have already signed up for the scheme.

The hotel and hospitality project is a follow up to the EPAs 2006 Greening Irish Hotels project that found that hotels could save money by reducing their waste and recycling more. It now hopes to concentrate on tackling food waste.

From 2009 the scheme will be broadened to other major food producing sectors such as restaurants, contract catering and hospitals.
