Eden Hotel Collection doubles its recycling effort

George Sell George Sell Uploaded 20 June 2013


UK: The Eden Hotel Collection has teamed up with recycling and resource management company SITA UK.

Eden and SITA have devised a strategy to significantly improve environmental measures across the group's seven luxury hotels. The group's operations team began discussions with SITA UK in early 2012, with the idea of a group contract for all seven hotels in mind.
SITA UK employs ground-breaking initiatives such as converting plastics to diesel fuel, while Eden was looking into cost savings by partnering with a recycling company, giving them the opportunity to manage and monitor waste management in a more structured and environmentally conscious way.
All seven hotels are now recycling food waste in addition to plastic, cardboard paper and glass.
Statistics from SITA show that as the hotels have more than doubled recycling across the group from 23% to 48% in May 2013.
Josefine Blomqvist, operations manager at Eden Hotel Collection, said: "We are delighted that we have been able to reduce our waste across the group by such a significant amount. Protecting and conserving our environment is a responsibility that we take very seriously at Eden Hotel Collection and we are pleased to be doing our bit."
Eden Hotel Collection  is aiming to fine tune current practices in order to increase recycling even further to 60% by the end of 2013.
