Waste management is entrenched as least exciting aspect of the Lodging industry. Aside from the obvious unpleasantness, waste disposal is a comparatively small expense on the balance sheet. Even so, the nascent Green Lodging movement has taken trash and recycling from the loading dock and parking lot and into the executive offices as the movement fast establishes itself as a viable way to control costs and increase occupancy.

While the economic benefits of “going Green” are straightforward, the difficulty in executing a Green Lodging initiative boils down to the fact that it is truly time consuming. “There are many resources advising hotel operators what to do, but few resources who can actually step in and do it, saving managers time and money by helping them avoid missteps along the way,” says Ray Burger, President of St. Charles, Missouribased Pineapple Hospitality, Inc. “In order to reduce operating costs, save busy Engineering staff time, and also help fill guest rooms, hotel operators must evaluate and implement Green Lodging best practices related to waste management and recycling,” says Burger, whose FreshStay.com division features a directory of non-smoking hotels.
