Eden Hotel Collection increases recycling efforts by 50%

The Eden Hotel Collection, which is privately owned by IT entrepreneur Sir Peter Rigby, claims to have doubled its recycling and sustainable activities across the group of seven luxury UK hotels.
Eden Hotel Collection’s operations team began discussions with recycling and resource management company, SITA UK, in early 2012 with the idea of a group contract for all seven hotels in mind.
SITA UK is dedicated to protecting the environment, employing initiatives such as converting plastics to diesel fuel.
The hotel group were looking into cost savings by partnering with a recycling company and this gave them the opportunity to manage and monitor waste management in a much 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 per cent to 48 per cent in May 2013.
“We are delighted that we have been able to reduce our waste across the group by such a significant amount,” says Operations Manager at Eden Hotel Collection, Josefine Blomqvist.
Eden Hotel Collection now aims to maintain and fine tune current practices in order to increase recycling even further to 60 per cent by the end of 2013.
Eden Hotel Collection comprises seven hotels and spas including Mallory Court Hotel (pictured), Leamington Spa; Buckland Tout-Saints Hotel, Devon; The Kings Hotel, Chipping Campden; The Arden Hotel, Stratford-upon-Avon; Brockencote Hall Hotel, Worcestershire; The Greenway Hotel and Spa, Cheltenham and The Mount Somerset Hotel and Spa, Somerset.
