Waste Reduction

Solid-waste considerations.
The volume of solid waste you send to the landfill, and the business and environmental costs of hauling  it away have a major impact on your sustainability efforts and your bottom line. Whenever possible, avoid  disposables in any area of your operations.

Plastic utensils and paper plates generally require more resources—particularly petroleum and energy— to produce and replace compared to the cost and impact of washing conventional dishes. In the long run,  disposable utensils, plates and cups cost you more. While it's unlikely that you can totally eliminate disposables from your kitchen, you can take many steps to minimize their use. Choose durable stainless  steel or ceramic covers for your warming and storage containers, for one.

Putting an end to a huge waste.

Naturally, not all organic waste can be eliminated from a professional kitchen. Consider the use of a pulper.  A high-quality pulper grinds bones, rinds, paper napkins and other organics while removing most of the water.

The result is solid waste that is much smaller in both volume and weight than uncompressed solid waste.  The pulped material can even be processed off site for mulch. Either way, it’s sure to save you money on  hauling and tipping charges while reducing the volume of waste you’re adding to the landfill.
