    which has managed to commit to a zero waste policy The owner Douglas McMaster saw the eco friendly business model work in a similar restaurant in Australia and decided to trial it in the UK The design of the restaurant itself was based on eco friendly materials sourced from the same woman Cat Fletcher who worked on the Waste House What Makes Silo So Unique Silo operate on a pre industrial food system which is primarily based on the concept of a more primitive diet with a greater focus on natural foods without any kind of processing whatsoever The entire restaurant has been designed back to front when compared to traditional designs with the skip and the waste bin in mind right from the start By choosing reusable delivery systems local ingredients which generate no waste trading with farmers and food producers on a direct basis and actually composting any scraps and organic trimmings on site As if that wasn t enough to drastically reduce the environmental impact of the restaurant business Silo goes not one but several steps further by Churning Its Own Butter Makes Its Own Almond Milk Brews Its Own Beer Creates Its Own Soft Drinks Rolls Its Own Oats Mills Its Own Flour McMaster credits the idea for Silo to Joost Bakker a Dutch artist whom he met in Australia The original concept in Australia resulted in a successful zero waste business and McMaster decided to bring the idea to the UK When Silo receives any ingredients they have to ensure that it has either no packaging or any packaging that is used is completely bio degradable This makes it difficult to get any ingredients such as nuts coffee and certain spices which they cannot obtain from a local source A zero waste restaurant McMaster explains isn t just one initiative it s made of a thousand little ones such as how do we get bicarbonate of soda How do we deal with receipts We have initiatives such as using frying oil to make candles making our own soap on site and electrolysing waster instead of buying in chemicals The Future Of Sustainable Living Eco Open Houses Whilst not every house can be zero waste like the Silo restaurant or composed of 85 reused materials like the Waste House there are still trial properties all across the city which are constantly making moves towards sustainable technologies Eco Open Houses saw a dozen different properties showcased cross the city to show how practical environmentally friendly houses could actually be One of these buildings a new home on Grantham Road is a zero carbon building which features an air sourced heater pump the latest in rainwater harvesting and underfloor heating Also on show was the award winning Earthship Brighton community centre which is made out of old car tyres which have been filled with dirt and earth The building itself generates its own solar energy and treats all sewage on site to ensure that it has as little

  • Could Robots Be The Waste-Managers Of The Future? | Skip Hire UK
    looking for ethically and sustainably produced items Therefore the demand for these recycled items continues to increase which means that the ethical and effective sorting of waste is a truly effective business model Recycling waste isn t just a matter of recovering materials which can be reused or sold on to a manufacturer but is instead an economic system With that in mind it is no wonder that waste management will soon be following in the footsteps of other manual industries and include robotic systems into everyday waste management use One of Holland s leading waste management organisations Baetsen has implemented a robotic system which is the first of its kind across the world The ZenRobotics Recycler This robotic technology is designed to replace five manual workers and is the first of its kind to be introduced into the waste management industry A highly sophisticated system the robotics involved are taught over a period of time to be specific and ensure that nothing gets through as part of a waste stream which isn t supposed to For the first two weeks of its operation the system only worked at around 40 50 of its desired capabilities but this quickly grew to 100 after the system s bugs were detected and fixed How Does The Robotic Recycling System Work The robots within the system rely on photography in order to effectively manage waste The rubbish is placed on the two metre wide conveyor belt and images are taken via a series of ten cameras lasers and sensors These then determine the type of waste which is sent by electronic signals to the processing centre the brain of the robot This all happens in a matter of milliseconds which enables to robot to work much faster and much more accurately than human hand eye co ordination As well as working much faster the robotic system can work non stop and is designed to catch and separate and heavy objects and separate them for sorting In as little as an hour the robot can collect and sort in excess of 1 500 objects weighing up to 20 kilograms each The Features Of The Robotic Sorting System The system features a smart gripper which can open from 50mm to 500mm allowing daily waste of most sizes and dimensions to be quickly and easily sorted The attached sorting arms themselves can throw waste literally in a 2x2 metre square space What makes the system incredible however is its incredible multi tasking capacity Each one of its robotic arms can sort up to four difference fractions with extremely high levels of precision It can sort a variety of different materials including stone and plastic resulting in an unbeatable purity level of 98 Thanks to its incredible capacity for learning the system can be actively adjusted for a variety of waste environments The Future Of Waste Management And Recycling It is clear that the entire industry is moving towards an automated process particularly as waste management companies

  • Skip Hunters: The Etiquette Of Skips! | Skip Hire UK
    skips are actually still working or at least repairable making them a prime target for any interested salvager These tend to lean more in skips towards furniture and other items which might only be slightly damaged However in commercial bins divers will often find discarded food such as near expiration date foodstuffs or stock which is simply being replaced Many retailers are reluctant to sell food which might cause any immediate problems even for reduced prices as they are often a liability risk There have even been dedicated articles and cookery books which specialise in near expiration date food Aside from these practical uses it is becoming increasingly common for artists to work with waste products and materials either for environmental reasons or to make a political point about the waste we throw away on a regular basis It is also often useful for students and garbologists who study the sociology of modern waste to research and obtain information The Hazards Of Skip Diving Skip hunting can be a dangerous hazardous and unpleasant activity particularly in the presence of organic waste Other dangerous materials can include broken glass which when combined with the presence of unsanitary conditions or potential biohazard waste can result in the major likelihood of an infection developing around any open cuts The arguments against skip diving for ethical or practical reasons often revolve around the potential impact that the activity can have on the diver s health There have been instances of skip divers being killed while skip diving as nobody expects them to be there There are other risks as well such as the potential for the skip diver to leave waste around the skip which could damage the nearby environment or create a potential hazard The Legality Of Skip Hunting Since skips and waste bins are usually located on private premises divers most commonly get into trouble for trespassing The act of skip diving itself is not actually prohibited by law but many businesses are choosing to use skips with locks in order to prevent dumpster divers Lockable skips offer a range of advantages including the limitation of potential liability in the event that a dumpster diver is damaged whilst on their property It is very rarely considered theft if someone takes materials from a skip as they are usually considered as abandoned However there is still the risk that taking from a skip will fall under the Theft Act 1968 in England or Wales or simply as common law theft in Scotland One of the most recent and high profile cases of skip diving in England was in October 2013 when three men were arrested and charged for taking food from the waste point behind an Iceland Supermarket However in January 2014 all charges were dropped following much public criticism and a personal request by the chief executive of Iceland Skip Hire And Unwanted Dumping Aside from the risk of skip divers many neighbours will often take advantage of other people s skip
