Characterization and Quantification of Waste in the Hotel Industry
It is important to categorize the types and quantity of organic waste produced by every department of the hotel industry so that it is managed properly. For example, household waste (jars, bottles, cardboard), office waste (like papers, documents, brochures), organic waste (vegetable and fruit peels, flowers) can be segregated in color-coded bins for easy and hassle-free waste management.
Understand Waste Hierarchy
This concept was presented by Waste on Line (2006) provides options to waste management by prevention, reuse, minimization, recycle, recovery and disposal which prevents a lot of waste from going to the waste stream. Recovery is the most important part of the process because some value of the waste material is retrieved through recycling. The last step is waste disposal which generally involves landfill and incineration of waste.
Hotel industry generates a lot of waste management and most of the time it is sent to the landfills without being treated properly. The first step in managing the data analysis of waste is to perform a waste management audit. Waste auditing is identifying the process of productivity from organic waste management practices in hotels. With the help of trash compactors or industrial balers wastes can the volume of waste can be immensely reduced which makes it easier to handle and cost of waste disposal management is reduced. Right from hospitals to hotel chains compactors of different shapes, sizes and convenience will prove to be perfect as a waste disposal tool. The organic waste in the hotel waste management can be reduced with the help of a food composter. Composting is a biological process which needs certain temperature ventilation, moisture, and carbon and nitrogen ratio. Compost is a very useful soil conditioner and fertile manure. To make a sustainable compost use Sadabahar composter vertical garden planter tower will help the best feature of it is self fertilizing with inbuilt composter attached with planter that is available at Urban plants in India.
Model and framework development
A framework is developed with special focus on which can save cost on local vendors and labour cost for handling waste management. It is classified into two:
- Profitability from Recyclable and Compostable material of Waste: This is the method of generating profit from the business events in a firm. The tool to increase the total profit by any methodical plan.
- Sustainability from Solid Waste Management: Everything you need to survive is sustainability. When the economic, social and environmental aspects are taken care of and has all the required conditions to sustain from managing waste, any framework can survive if these three aspects are within.
