Food waste collection
Food waste collection

As well as our general waste and recycling services, we offer a food waste collection service to businesses across Edinburgh, Glasgow and Scotland’s central belt. We can recycle all kinds of cooked and uncooked foodstuffs, which are turned into good quality fertiliser, energy for space heating and converted into biogas to fuel vehicles, like our fleet of collection trucks.

Why the focus needs to be on food

Most businesses we speak to assume that the best way to combat climate change is through reducing their plastic consumption. While this is vital to the health of the planet, it is even more important that we focus on reducing our food waste.

Food waste emits the same amount of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere as does all of the cars on roads across the world – this is because when it is thrown into landfill and decomposes it produces huge amounts of methane, a hugely toxic greenhouse gas.

How you can help

It’s easy to get started with your food waste collection service. Educating your employees is key, as it’s vital that everyone gets on board with your food waste recycling initiative. Not only will they be helping to save the planet – the food recycling process actually captures these harmful gases and harnesses them to produce an incredible source of energy.

By recycling just one kilogram of food waste, you can generate enough energy to power all the lights in a home for an hour – that’s how much of a positive impact your food waste can have.

With your help, we can begin to tackle some of the leading sources of climate change while also helping you to cut your business costs.
