Confidential Client: Recycling and Waste Minimization, Fast Food Restaurant Chain, Puerto Rico
GEA conducted an audit of all waste materials generated by the restaurant chain in order to identify opportunities for reduction in landfill disposal. Recycling options were evaluated and transportation alternatives were studied to determine the best strategies to reduce cost and improve the restaurant's environmental sustainability. Existing logistic capabilities were considered as well in order to capitalize on client strengths and provide opportunities for current workers to expand their capabilities. In addition, industry, academic and governmental resources were consulted for input in order to devise the optimal plan to reduce waste and generate revenues from the sale of recycled materials.
