On a regular basis Joseph Holt are provided with a recycling report showing tonnages and the breakdown of materials recycled. This helps prove their waste strategy’s impact on sustainable waste management and zero landfill commitment.
Levels of recycling have now reached 63% with an additional 37% of waste being processed at an energy from waste plant to generate green energy, with zero waste to landfill as the result.
The reports are published internally with the purpose of obtaining further buy-in from staff in ensuring they reduce waste produced and place waste in the correct container to further maximise recycling levels, as they see the impact their efforts are having. The data also feeds into the facilities report to the Board of Directors, who are assured that the waste strategy is aligning with their mission.
Fresh Start Waste support the Joseph Holt Pub Awards, which further enhances the relationship with the staff, and buy-in to ensuring they recycle as much as possible in the correct bins provided. Additionally Fresh Start make regular donations in support of Hospitality Action which helps those who work or have worked in the hospitality sector, such as Joseph Holt employees, in times of need
