A hotel in Adelaide has been recognised for having a zero per cent rate of waste.

A hotel in Adelaide has been recognised for its attempts to help the environment by making a dramatic reduction to the amount of waste it produces.

The InterContinental Adelaide has managed to achieve a zero per cent rate of waste, with all of the rubbish it produces now being recycled.

As a result of this, the hotel has not sent anything to landfill for the past three months.

The initiative was introduced by the company globally and general manager at the Adelaide hotel James Allen said it had helped to set a new benchmark in recycling standards.

“We set our targets to have 100 per cent recycling of waste and zero landfill by the end of 2012 and we have achieved it a year earlier than expected,” Mr Allen added.

As well as offering eco-friendly hotels, Adelaide is famous for being in the heart of Australia’s wine region, with Barossa Valley, Coonawarra and the Clare Valley all located nearby.
