The Brookwood Partnership has teamed up with recycling firm Cawleys to promote the range of recycling options available to its clients.
The independent school caterer has launched Cawleys Eco Eating system into a number of sites across its portfolio, recycling both food waste and food packaging alongside traditional waste and recycling services.
Eco Eating aims to provide food waste producers with a zero waste-to-landfill solution that provides cost savings on landfill and incinerator alternatives.
The initiative is part of Brookwood's Planet Matters programme, and the company said it had proved popular with both clients and employees.
Kate Martin, managing partner at Brookwood, said: "We take our environmental responsibilities very seriously and continuously look for new initiatives that can help reduce our impact.
"By working with Cawleys we are helping to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill as well as offering our clients a positive solution to waste management."
Matt Burton, key account manager for Cawleys, added: "There is so much emphasis on waste and recycling in the media at the moment, and we firmly believe that a drive to promote efficient waste and recycling practices while focusing on supporting, developing, encouraging and engaging with educational establishments is clearly a great place to start.
"The services we offer cover physical waste and recycling collections, but also focus on delivering savings through state-of-the-art green technologies which reduce carbon footprint and ultimately cost."
Cawleys and the Brookwood Partnership have worked together for the past four years.
