Waste Management and Energy Recovery: a Significant Business Issue (2014)

Abstract Waste Management and energy recovery has become a significant business issue for hospitality establishments in recent years. Hospitality establishments have to be more concerned about waste in their businesses and be able to adopt systems to reduce, reuse and recover waste. This challenge is the result of a variety of factors, most notably the charges involved in waste removal and cost of every businesses energy needs. Costs have grown dramatically, landfill capacity has become increasingly scarce and expensive. Stringent legislation has been introduced around the world to ensure optimum waste management and energy recovery practices in hospitality businesses. Opportunities have to be found to reduce, reuse and recycle waste streams, while ensuring residual waste is managed in a responsible and efficient manner in compliance with the relevant legislation. Businesses must be able to identify energy saving innovations for their establishments, they must also be able to carry out a waste audit for identifying waste and managing waste streams. At a minimum, bar owners should have a practical understanding of the local and national legislation in this area. Owners must also ensure, if necessary by enforcement that their staff members follow proper waste and energy saving policies. This special presentation will address these issues.
