Green Restaurant Association Dishes 5 Tips for Improved Recycling

Eighty-two percent of foodservice operators put sustainability initiatives on hold in 2020, according to research firm Technomic. That statistic, though staggering, may not be so surprising given the swift and plentiful changes the industry incurred amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Now, as operators trudge into the new year, the Green Restaurant Association offered some advice for operators who are looking to improve recycling practices in restaurants. The association’s video (below) highlights “five simple steps with a big impact.”

From front-of-house considerations such as bilingual messaging and the ideal placement of recycling signage to back-of-house measures like comparing products and packaging the restaurant regularly utilizes with those their recycler accepts, the video provides plenty of food for thought that can go a long way toward ensuring a greener 2021.
