Burger King Franchise Finds Whopper Waste and Recycling Savings
FOR Norwest, which owns and operates 37 Burger Kings in Washington and Alaska, has saved an average of $3,300 a month with Global Trash Solutions waste management consulting services.
FOR Norwest enrolled with Global Trash Solutions in mid-October 2013 and saw waste and recycling savings in less than two weeks, the company says.
Global Trash Solutions manages the waste and recycling needs for fast food restaurants nationwide. They determine and negotiate fair profit margins with all haulers, large and small, throughout the US. The consulting firm says they also custom-tailor the most cost efficient solution for each individual client location.
To help regional businesses reduce their demand for landfill disposal and identify cost savings opportunities, the Greater Cincinnati Green Business Council (GCGBC) last month released a free waste management toolkit.
The toolkit will help businesses meet and exceed the region’s goal — to reduce waste sent to landfill by 33 percent by 2020 — says Lisa O’Brien, co-author of the toolkit and director of environmental affairs, US Bank.
