This hotel recycles food waste !
Brocket Hall, a quintessentially English country house hotel with butler service and a team of chefs delivering the highest culinary standards offers very luxurious accommodation and dining. The hotel is regularly used by politicians, businessmen and captains of industry to meet, discuss and relax in a discreet and convivial atmosphere or for a round of golf at one of two world class courses on site. Also a popular wedding and party venue the Hall has 30 double rooms with a further 16 double rooms in the Melbourne Lodge. The 5 star Auberge du Lac restaurant can seat 30 guests overlooking the lakes and 543 acre estate.
The Facilities Team at Brocket Hall are determined to reduce waste and recycle wherever possible, all waste streams were tackled but food waste was the most challenging. With so many guests and staff on site every day a quantity of food waste is inevitable so they researched the market for a sustainable solution, there are plenty of options but turning the food waste into compost on-site was a ‘no brainer’. Several systems were appraised and the Ridan was chosen for its simplicity and the fact that it didn’t require any power source.
So now the hotel recycles food waste from all guests and staff using a Ridan system to turn it into lovely rich compost which is then used on the gardens.
