Barbican Implements 100% Food Recycling Scheme

The Barbican has implemented a new food recycling scheme. This new initiative backs up the venue's long list of catering focused CSR policies, which includes offering a food miles scheme that ensures all food is locally sourced (within 250 road miles of the venue).

As one of the UK's leading event centres, the Barbican has made direct investment in recycling facilities for the public, and implemented new recycling initiatives including a comprehensive food waste composting programme involving both of their catering partners. This initiative will allow them to compost 100% of their food waste.

Lee Dobson, head of event management, at the Barbican said: “The Barbican is extremely committed to promoting a green and clean environment. We are mindful of the millions of visitors we receive here yearly and the amount of waste generated as a result. We have therefore introduced food recycling bins and strict recycling policies throughout the onsite catering kitchens. The scheme has been implemented in conjunction with our in-house catering team Searcy and we are eager to make it a success.”

To further minimise their waste, the Barbican expanded their bin-the-bin policy to their level 6 offices, resulting in the removal of desk side bins and the provision of central recycling stations inside the office.
