The lodging industry in America, with over 3, 936, 000 guest rooms, produces approximately 13, 600, 000 tons of garbage every year. Hoteliers have many opportunities to reduce waste by utilizing to establish waste prevention and recycling programs and by purchasing recycled products using a retail waste management program. Besides reducing waste and saving money, these actions can increase employee morale and customer satisfaction as well as lower dumpster costs and create strong relationships with the managed haulers. When it comes to waste disposal and waste management, those in the hospitality industry experience a unique set of challenging needs.

A safe, efficient waste management system is a crucial aspect of any hospitality business
It is important, in the hospitality waste management environment, that your business comes across as a professional and clean environment to all of your patrons. Furthermore, due to the increasing safety requirements of the industry, it is extremely important that your waste disposal equipment, including dumpsters and roll-offs, be easy to operate and maintain all while meeting the required safety regulations. Be it a nationwide hotel chain, or an individual motel, a safe, efficient waste management system is a crucial aspect of any hospitality business.
Although waste is clearly a big issue for hoteliers, examples of good waste management practice can be found across the hospitality industry. They range from environmentally enlightened individuals at small establishments 'doing their bit', to well orchestrated systems within international groups. What many of them share is the knowledge that landfill capacity around the world is diminishing as rapidly as the costs are escalating, that incineration is not always an option, and that waste legislation is becoming increasingly tough.
To take on these issues it is important to utilize waste brokers, trash brokers, managed haulers, and waste outsourcing services to maximize your trash and waste spend. In addition, many items that are thrown away can have an afterlife when reused or recycled into something else.

Lincoln Waste Solutions will help you establish a system to evaluate waste hauling costs, track disposal and evaluate materials for recycling.
