Food Waste Case Study: The Hotel at Kirkwood Center
The Hotel at Kirkwood Center and its Class Act Restaurant were both founded on green principles. The Hotel's building structure includes an advanced heating/cooling system and energy efficient occupancy sensors. A charging station is available for electric vehicles. In February, Kirkwood Community College finished installing a 2.5 Megawatt Clipper wind turbine on campus. However, food waste diversion is not exactly something you would associate with a hotel that has twice earned the prestigious American Automobile Association (AAA) Four Diamond Rating for lodging excellence.
