Hilton Waste2Water Initiative
As hotel brands clamour to become more environmentally competitive, Hilton’s Heathrow Airport location in London has introduced an innovative water solution to deal with food waste.
The hotel’s food waste is added to a Waste2Water chamber, where it is then turned into grey water which can be recycled rather than go into landfill. The Waste2Water scheme is part of the brand’s objective to achieve zero waste to landfill.
However, with food waste collection and disposal costs increasing at a rate of 20% per year, with UK government proposals set to penalise waste generators even further in coming years, the initiative also benefits the brand’s profit margins.
