Pub chain picks Veolia

Weatherspoons pub

Pub chain JD Wetherspoon has appointed Veolia to help it divert all its waste from landfill.

Some 11,500 tonnes of food waste will be diverted from landfill, and the contract is also due to provide 3,450MWha year of renewable energy.

Veolia’s contract will cover the entire Wetherspoon estate of around 900 pubs, hotels and bars

Veolia’s senior executive vice-president for UK and Ireland, Estelle Brachlianoff, said: “As one of the most well-known names on the high street, we are proud to be working with the team at JD Wetherspoon and supporting them in achieving their goals of zero waste to landfill, and protecting the environment by taking care of their recycling and general waste sustainably.”

Wetherspoon’s contractor performance manager, David Willis, said: “In line with our work with the Sustainable Restaurants’ Association, we take very seriously our commitment to minimise waste and opting for recycling wherever possible.”

He said the company’s goal of zero waste to landfill would be achieved by December, and that all waste managed for the chain by Veolia would be processed in the UK.
