National Restaurant Association’s Restaurant Operator Recycling Survey
October 25, 2011
The National Restaurant Association, with support from Georgia-Pacific Professional, recently conducted research to identify current recycling practices of restaurants as well as consumer demands and perceptions as they relate to restaurants’ recycling practices. The findings are intended to provide a clear, present-day view of recycling best practices in the restaurant industry and to better equip restaurant operators to meet the expectations of consumers, further enhance their innovative sustainability efforts, and be true to their bottom lines.
Implementing sustainable business practices is a top priority for many restaurateurs. Operators who recycle waste products at their establishments know it not only attracts and engages the interest of customers, but also offers potential economic benefits and is good for the environment, too.
