Resource Management

Improving resource management to meet your sustainability needs


Now more than ever, pubs and restaurants are under pressure to do the right thing for the environment and improve the sustainability of their operations. Traditionally, the eco-conscious route has been seen as more expensive, but in waste management, the opposite is true.

Restaurants and pubs have multiple waste streams, including food, mixed and coloured glass, coffee cups and more. Disposing of this waste as a single, un-segregated stream into heavy bins is both expensive and bad for the environment. Specifically, unsorted waste going straight to landfill will be subject to Landfill Tax, and materials like plastic and food are not recycled back into the supply chain and wider circular economy.
 


PUBLICLY COMMITTING TO SUSTAINABILITY

At Veolia, we understand the importance of reducing your waste and moving material up the hierarchy to reduce your environmental footprint and offer services to increase sustainability while reducing your costs. 

We are experts in the circular economy, and are well-placed to advise you on steps to take to reduce waste, cut carbon and improve the overall sustainability of your pub and restaurant business, as well as offering training, communications and account management to provide solutions for specific site challenges. 

For example, we can undertake composition analysis on your general waste stream, and introduce colour-coded internal containers to segregate waste into separate streams. By doing so, we can more efficiently collect materials that can be processed back into the circular economy, instead of going into landfill.

 

THERE'S A SOLUTION TO ENABLE ALL YOUR WASTE STREAMS TO MEET YOUR GOALS

Veolia can develop solutions for all your waste streams, including food waste, which will ultimately reduce general waste and lead to less frequent container lifts, resulting in further savings and a more sustainable waste management system for your business.

We can also help you introduce backhauling systems to your waste collection operations, cutting carbon emissions by reducing the amount of time vehicles spend on the road. Collaborating with other partners in your supply chain and logistics network, we can optimise service schedules so vehicles bringing in new products are taking away waste too.

We look for cost-saving opportunities across your service schedules and waste streams to ensure your refuse collection operations are as efficient and sustainable as possible.
