PHS Wastekit Case Studies
Hotels reduces costs while further improving environmental responsibility
QHotels prides itself in its collection of 21 carefully nurtured, unique four-star hotels throughout the UK. With over 2,900 bedrooms and an abundance of first-rate meeting rooms, the company takes great care in selecting suppliers, to ensure its high standards are maintained.
When approached by PHS Wastekit, Director of Procurement Andrew Tait saw a great opportunity for QHotels to achieve compliance with the new Waste Management Regulations. The Regulations require companies to carefully assess their waste streams and apply the Waste Hierarchy with a view to reduce waste sent to landfill, and encourage waste reduction, reuse, and recycling.
Andrew commented, “What we saw from PHS Wastekit was a cost effective proposal that enabled us to further add to our green credentials. We wanted to both reduce our waste disposal costs, whilst improving our recycling rates. PHS Wastekit’s product range offered the perfect solution.”
As well as cost and environmental benefits, Andrew was also pleased with the way the PHS Wastekit products improved the neatness of the waste areas at the hotels. “We like to ensure our outdoor areas are clean and tidy. Installing PHS Wastekit waste handling equipment has improved these areas, helping us to maintain our hotels’ high standards,” he added.
Andrew continued, “Easy to use, fit for purpose and providing great value for money, I would highly recommend PHS Wastekit to any company looking to reduce costs and be environmentally responsible.”
QHotels has been working hard on their “green commitment” since 2008, which led to being crowned AA Eco Hotel Group of the Year 2011, and awarded Carbon Trust Standard for CO2 reduction. In 2013, QHotels was awarded 15 Gold awards and 6 Silver awards by the Green Tourism Business Scheme.
