Grande Lakes Orlando Hotels Among First to Send Food Waste to New Energy Garden


ORLANDO, FLA.—The two hotels in Grande Lakes Orlando—The Ritz-Carlton Orlando and JW Marriott Orlando—are among the first lodging establishments in Central Florida to send food waste to the Central Florida Energy Garden. Owned and operated by Harvest Power and located within the Reedy Creek Improvement District, the recently opened Energy Garden converts organic waste into renewable biogas and natural fertilizers. (See related article.) Twice each week, food waste from the two facilities’ banquet operations is picked up and taken to the Energy Garden. Bob Brown, Chief Engineer for the hotels, says about 20 to 30 tons a month of food waste is being recycled. That represents just a portion of the food waste generated. “We are looking to add an additional weekly pickup,” Brown says. “Together, the three weekly pickups would end up accounting for 50 percent of our food waste.” Brown says he first visited the Energy Garden in November when Harvest Power first approached the two hotels. “We have since taken a team of chefs,” he says.
