Why Your Business Needs a Bottle Skip

All businesses create waste, but in the hospitality and catering business, waste is certainly an issue. Bars and restaurants create a lot of waste, from food waste to packaging, and this waste needs to be managed and disposed of correctly.

Why manage business waste?

It’s better for the environment

Using a waste management company for your business waste is a better choice for the environment, as the waste is likely to be recycled, reused, or used to create energy. This is far better than it ending up in landfill or being fly-tipped.

It makes your business more efficient

Making sure you have waste collected regularly will keep your floor space free, and it will save the time you might spend moving waste around to gain access to certain parts of the premises.

It helps you to comply with the law  

You need to make sure you’re aware of the rules and regulations on waste storage and disposal wherever your business is located. The penalties for flouting the law can be severe, so always use a legitimate waste disposal company who will dispose of the waste correctly.

It helps to keep your premises clean and tidy

Disposing of waste correctly will make sure that your premises is kept free from excessive stored waste and free from unpleasant smells from the discarded waste.

Glass Recycling

A typical bar or restaurant gets through a lot of glass bottles. Glass is a valuable material and it is widely recycled. Here’s why you should recycle it:

  • Glass can be recycled again and again and there’s no loss of quality
  • Sending glass waste to landfill increases waste management costs
  • The energy needed to melt recycled glass and make it into new products is less than the energy that is needed to use raw materials to make new glass items.
  • Recycling just 1 glass bottle can power a TV for 1 ½ hours
  • Each 1000 tonnes of recycled glass that is melted saves over 300 tonnes of CO2.
  • Around 500 jobs are created per 100,000 tonnes of glass that is collected for recycling.
