Meeting demands for catering food waste recycling
Did you know a staggering 3.5 million* tonnes of food waste from the UK hospitality sector goes into landfill sites each and every year? The issue of waste management is becoming an increasingly hot topic and one we all feel strongly about here at Brabantia. We provide a variety of food waste caddies, recycling bins and large commercial bins for food waste separation.
Many of our hospitality sector customers rely heavily on our food waste recycling solutions. For example our Touch Bin Recycle 10/23 litre, beautiful and contemporary design but most importantly, it’s environmentally friendly.
In the Touch Bin Recycle you can keep organic and compostable matter separate from other waste. With two plastic inner buckets – a 23 litre for all daily waste and a 10 litre for compostable waste, this has become a staple product in the catering industry.
Food waste represents a cost to the Staff Catering Sector alone of £44 million each year** including food procurement, labour, utilities and waste management costs, or £2,200 per tonne.
And don’t forget that from January 1st this year, new UK waste regulations now require businesses to separate recyclable material (paper, plastic, metal and glass) from other waste. This new update to the EU Waste Framework Directive is to help improve to the quality and quantity of recycling throughout the UK.
Businesses throughout the UK also face a year on year rise in the cost of anything disposed of to landfill. So reducing the amount of waste your establishment sends for disposal by recycling as much of it as possible instead, should save you money in the long term.
