I have noticed that the catering at Southmead uses non-recyclable black plastic containers when providing meals for patients. It has also been brought to my attention that unused food (E. G. Sandwiches) may be being put in the bin rather than given to others when it is hygienically appropriate. This amount of waste is unacceptable and unethical. I am sure that an appropriate alternative can be found to show that Southmead and North Bristol NHS Trust wants to do their bit to reduce waste and protect our environment.
