Paso Robles Inn implements organics waste recycling program
The inn now recycles 16 cubic yards of organics waste per week
–The Paso Robles Inn is among the first businesses in Paso Robles to implement an organics waste recycling program. The program meets the new state mandate requiring organics recycling for businesses that generate eight cubic yards of organic waste a week. The Inn now recycles 16 cubic yards of organics waste every week, which includes food, greens, landscaping, non-hazardous wood ware, and compostable paper.
The new recycling program adds to Martin Resorts’ involvement with community sustainable efforts. A partner with Clean the World for over five years, the hotels have collected more than 100,000 bars of soap. These efforts reduce unneeded waste from entering local landfills, while providing new hygiene products to impoverished areas that otherwise would not have any.
Additionally, Martin Resorts has adopted a wide variety of water-responsible practices, including a program to offer guests a $5 credit for foregoing housekeeping services. The hotels have also removed grass and installed drought-resistant landscaping. Martin Resorts reduced water usage across all properties by 29.15-percent in 2015, saving over 1,200,000 gallons of water.
