Food Waste

Our food waste collection service consists of two do ways one is for wet food waste with residual to be placed in wheelie bins which will be collected weekly in order reach health and safety standards.The other way is with a 10 yard skip with lids however this food waste has to be sealed in packaging this way is more cost effective if you are producing a significant amount of food waste a week. By removing food waste from your general municipal waste you’ll reduce the weight and therefore reducing costs and increase your recycling.

All the food waste we collect is taken to a facility called an Anaerobic digester where to food is placed in a chamber that extracts all the oxygen from inside and the food is broken down by micro organisms, this process produces biogas, a mixture of methane and carbon dioxide which can be used for biofuels and to produce electricity.
