Yes, recycling can save money! Hotels & Resorts generate more paper, garbage and other waste than most realize. In addition to harming the environment, this waste is costing your hotel a lot of money. Therefore, in these times of cost cutting and environmental awareness, hotel operators should consider utilizing a proper recycling & waste program to maximize ROI on removal. With waste and recycling programs being noticed by guests more than any other industry, a successful program with elegantly designed containers could reduce operating costs and encourage returning business.
RECYCLING & WASTE MANAGEMENT IS A GREAT WAY TO REDUCE GHG EMISSIONS, COMBAT CLIMATE CHANGE AND SAVE MONEY.
Green hotels are environmentally-friendly properties whose managers are eager to institute programs that save water, save energy and reduce solid waste—while saving money. These socially responsible hotels are aware of the business impacts associated with the environment and are taking proactive steps to reduce their carbon output and help alleviate the effects of climate change.
Busch Systems has been designing recycling and waste bins for Hotels & Resorts for over 30 years.
Our experience working with hotels has taught us that containers need to be durable and practical for everyday use. However, in most cases, they also need to be aesthetically pleasing with particular customizable options to suit each hotels and resorts unique décor.
Let’s Talk Averages
The average hotel guest creates 2.2 lbs of waste per stay; more than half of it is paper, plastic and cardboard. There are roughly 5.3 million hotel rooms in North America. On any given night a total 11.8 million lbs of waste could potentially be created by hotel guests in North America.
Approximately 30 percent (3.5 million lbs per day) of that waste can be diverted from landfills via recycling.
The Green Hotel
Seattle’s Westin Hotel (Aka the Green Hotel) overhauled their sustainability program in 1993 to include recycling the standard commodities, along with kitchen grease. Today, 30% of the hotel’s waste is recycled, equaling 280 tons annually with a combined savings and revenue from recycling totaling over $30,000 per year.
Reducing the Waste Stream
The New Orleans Intercontinental started a recycling program and hired staff to separate the materials. Management was amazed to find that these employees were pulling $1,000 a month worth of hotel property out of the waste stream (i.e. napkins, towels, spoons, etc.) and transferring them to be recycled.
In Illinois, a Chicago Hyatt reduced their waste hauling by 80%. They had the same experience as New Orleans Continental, with the exception that their staff was pulling $3,000 to $10,000 a month of hotel property out of the waste stream.
