Rab Ha’s

When Rab Ha’s, a busy bar in the centre of Glasgow, opened its doors in September 2017 it didn’t have a recycling policy in place. All of its waste went into one large bin kept outside the premises.

When Glasgow Council announced new rules regarding the storage and collection of trade waste, including that waste could no longer be stored on public space and was only allowed to be put out for collection within a specified time frame, Rab Ha’s owner, Robert Mullan, knew he had to act.

Without any private space to store a wheeled container for his trade waste, Robert had to find another method for disposing his business waste. He met with several waste companies, but he found all the different services and quotes confusing. Robert said: “Changeworks Recycling met me at the bar and by identifying which waste materials were produced in each area of the business, they put forward a simple solution that was easy for the team to manage and removed the need for an outside container.
“It also meant that we could increase the amount of waste we recycled. After this, the decision to go with Changeworks Recycling was a no brainer.” “Implementing a waste management plan has been a really positive move for the business. Thanks to a few small changes from Changeworks Recycling, we’ve started recycling glass, paper, cans, plastic bottles and food from the kitchen area. “Our team has also really taken more of an interest in the environment too, making them more aware of how much we can actually recycle.”
