Hotels urged to manage their own waste


23 February 2010


The Goa Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI), in association with the Travel and Tourism Association of Goa (TTAG) will conduct a one-day seminar on waste management on February 27, 2010 for hoteliers, restaurants and other stakeholders in Goa. The seminar will be conducted by The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI).

Announcing this at a press conference, GCCI vice president Manguirish Pai Raikar and TTAG president Ralphe de Souza said that though Goa is a top rated tourist destination in the world, civic authorities in Goa have failed to adequately address the problem of garbage in the state.

The GCCI feels that the best way forward is for all major hotels and restaurants to have their own facilities for reducing, recycling and treating their wet and other garbage in an environment-friendly manner and also to try to generate some energy from the waste so that these facilities not only become economical but also save costs for these hotels.

This will also reduce the burden on the government, Raikar said.
