Abstract

Solid waste generation and disposal is one of the most negative impacts of hotels on the environment. Hospitality industries often pay little attention to their environmental responsibilities. Solid waste is a key concern in the hospitality industry. Typically, a hotel guest can produce 1 kg of waste per day that accumulates to thousands of tonnes of waste annually. Many hotel operators have very little interest in reducing and/or recycling waste, believing that such activities are too expensive and time-consuming. The main objectives of this study were to provide data regarding the solid waste management from hotel and present typical practices for waste prevention / minimization at source.
