The hotel is one of the key hospitality partners for the project that further promotes the noble ‘Year of Giving’ initiative marked by the nation in 2017.

A Food Waste Recycling machine was recently installed to successfully achieve a zero food waste goal. Another waste management initiative is the implementation of an efficient waste segregation system where waste is sorted and disposed of at designated recycling stations. Burnt-out light bulbs, used batteries and old printer cartridges are collected and sent to a recycling agency for safe destruction and recycling where possible.
