Timberyard restaurant

“We’ve benefitted from implementing the new waste regulations from the start. It was always part of our ethos to re-use and recycle and given we were starting a new venture we also needed to be as economical as possible. So engaging with Changeworks Recycling to manage all of our waste made perfect sense on so many levels.

We knew we were implementing the highest standards of recycling by complying with the regulations and Changeworks Recycling worked with us to help us be as efficient as possible. They also made complying simple and straightforward, which was one less thing to think about when we opened! All of our staff embrace the waste management initiatives as part of the restaurant’s ethos, and by doing it right first time, it’s meant that they haven’t had to get used to doing things any other way.”

 
"Changeworks Recycling has supported us through the change, and has made the process extremely easy!"

Edinburgh School of Food & Wine

Based in the beautiful grounds of a charming 18th century manor house the Edinburgh School of Food & Wine (ESFW) has been a flourishing success ever since its establishment in Edinburgh in 1987. The team at ESFW take great pride in being friendly and knowledgeable whilst at the same time being able to use their experience and knowhow to help develop client’s appreciation for the finer side of food and wine.

As a forward thinking, ethically responsible organisation, the relationship between ESFW and Changeworks Recycling was always going to be a strong, mutually beneficial one. ESFW believes that businesses should respect the environment around them and operate in a sustainable way; these are values also held by Changeworks Recycling. By working with Changeworks Recycling, the school has been able to achieve zero waste to landfill for all the waste streams it generates.

“It’s always been our ethos to minimise waste, we’ve been working with Changeworks Recycling for a number of years and they have helped us achieve our goal of sending zero waste to landfill. Using Changeworks Recycling means that we don’t have to co-ordinate deliveries to local recycling plants, saving staff time and hassle. Separating our waste for recycling has become second nature to all our staff. Given our strong environmental credentials our next focus will be energy use. We are always looking at ways that we can use our energy more effectively, how we can generate energy from more sustainable resources and how to move to more sustainable forms of lighting within the school”.

 
"Our relationship with Changeworks Recycling, coupled with our determination to reduce the impact we have on the environment, is helping us to influence our suppliers to reduce their packaging. This makes sense from a business point of view, by way of a reduced cost base, as much as it benefits the environment"

Paper Tiger

“It’s always been our ethos to minimise waste and recycle as much as possible, however during the run up to Christmas in 2012 I knew we could do more with the amount of waste we were having to dispose of.

I resolved to let the new Waste Regulations be the catalyst to look at how we could recycle even more and minimise our residual waste.

We’d been using Changeworks Recycling for years and given our shared values we’ve built up a good relationship with them. So we approached them and ask them to work with us to achieve our goals. As a result we’ve been fully compliant since early 2013 and it’s been a really useful process given the savings we’ve made in other areas as a result.”
