You’ve switched your site to Vegware and confirmed with our Environmental team that you’re in one of our composting regions where clients can access our approved collections. How do you ensure the transition all goes to plan?
Whether your site is a small independent café or large corporate site, introducing any new recycling system can have teething issues. It takes time for your site users – staff and visitors alike – to learn a new system. When the new waste stream is for compostable packaging & food waste, Vegware really wants to help our clients get it right. The last thing we all want is to send contamination to a compost facility. Our collective goal is always quality recycling.
The ‘Quality First’ method
For larger sites, Vegware’s Environmental team recommends clients use the ‘Quality First’ method – as these sites have large numbers of staff, visitors and catering outlets – making them more likely to have contamination during the initial transition.
This method means introducing the compostable products, new waste streams and signage – all of which Vegware supplies to our customers, while monitoring the contamination level closely, and only composting it when the behaviour change has been successful.Continue reading Introducing a new recycling system to a site
