Commercial Food Waste Collection

For most businesses, food waste is inevitable; but by segregating food waste in the most effective way, we can increase your recycling rates, reduce CO2 emissions and help you move towards zero waste to landfill.

How we can help

By segregating your food waste, we can help you reduce the environmental impact of your business and meet your sustainability targets. It’s better for the environment, simple to do and doesn’t cost the earth.

First, we’ll perform a waste audit to assess your needs and the space you have available at your premises. That way we can implement the best waste management solution for you and Determine how frequently you’ll need your food waste collected, ensuring you have the right containers and whether you require a mobile compaction service.

How do we create value for you?

Extra waste segregation doesn’t have to increase your costs. In fact, by reducing the weight in your other bins, it could result in a more cost-efficient service that saves you money.

What happens to your food waste?

We can turn your food waste into a valuable resource, by using anaerobic digestion to create green energy.

For example, at Leeming Bar, North Yorkshire, we are putting the circular economy into practice by operating one of the largest gas-to-grid energy plants in the UK, helping us meet our 2020 green energy targets.

 

 

... and reduce the environmental impact of your business

Leeming Biogas converts 80,000 tonnes of food waste into electricity which is injected into the gas grid, supplying energy to local homes and businesses.
