Solid Waste Management

Solid Waste Management is an important aspect of environmental responsibility given the amount of waste that is sent to landfills all over the world. We follow the 3R theory - Reduce, Reuse and Recycle to manage waste efficiently.

We segregate our solid waste in all the kitchens of the hotel. Four separate colour coded bins are used for storing the separated waste.

  • Black Bin- for the wet garbage like food waste
  • Green Bin: for Paper waste like newspaper, cardboard cartons, paper napkin etc.
  • White Bin: for the Recyclable waste like empty mineral water bottles, tin cans, thick plastic bags, parcel packets, stirrers, soft drink cans/tins, etc.
  • Red Bin: Used for non-recyclable garbage like oil packets, soiled aluminium foil, cling wrap etc.

The food waste or wet waste is decomposed in the hotel premises. A Vermiculture area has been set up for converting this food waste into organic manure or 'vermicompost'. This rich and fertile vermicompost is then used as a fertilizer for the gardens.
