The multi-award winning Canolfan Conway Centre is coming to the end of a three year on-site food waste recycling trial that has proved to be highly successful. The 420-bed residential education centre, one of the largest in the UK, installed an A700 Rocket® In-Vessel Composter from Cheshire based manufacturers Accelerated Compost Ltd to process the food waste from around 1,000 meals a day and in October 2007 the Centre was awarded the Environmental Management System Award for the Public Sector in the Welsh
Sustainability Awards.

The process towards a more sustainable centre began in 2003 with an invitation by John Pearson, then a part of Cheshire County Council’s Environmental Planning Department, to carry out an Eco Audit resulting in an action plan going forward from 2004.

Paul Southall, Buildings and Environmental Supervisor, “Changes were made in the Centre’s tuck shop to reduce unrecyclable waste and initiatives were set up through the kitchen suppliers to provide recyclable packaging on all food items where possible. The kitchens have a lot to deal with averaging 1,100 covers a day. This is around the same amount produced in an average secondary school.”
