Food waste is a valuable resource. Just throwing it away is wasteful since food waste can be turned into compost and renewable energy. Some businesses such as restaurants, pubs and hotels produce large quantities of it and for nearly all these Westminster businesses it is no longer acceptable to just throw it away. Instead they keep it separate and use Westminster’s Food Waste Service to turn it into compost and biogas.
If you’d like to do more with your business’ food waste then talk to us today about our Food Waste Collection Service. We cater for any size of business whatever its waste collection needs. Keeping food waste separate from general waste will also save you on your waste collection costs.
Westminster’s Commercial Waste Service will collect your food waste separately and send it for composting in an anaerobic digestion facility. This is the most environmentally friendly method of treatment for this type of waste available in the UK. The facility turns food waste into biogas that can go into the gas grid and into fertiliser used on farms. It allows for a closed loop solution; what starts on the farm gets returned to the farm.
Food waste cannot be presented in bags on the street due to Animal By-Product Regulations and as such we will look after supplying you with all bins and liners that you might require.
Why not close the loop and use the compost made from Westminster’s food waste for your planters and internal landscaping? Please visit pro-grow on how to obtain this nutrient rich soil improver made from local food waste.
