Many businesses produce food waste, and all are ethically obliged to dispose of it responsibly. Direct365 specialise in recycling food waste; and because we search the market for you, we can assure you’ll get the best price for recycling services.
Don’t mistake food waste for general waste. Waste disposal to landfill sites is facing increasing costs, meaning that properly segregating your food and general waste could end up costing you (and the environment!) less in the long run.
Food recycling isn’t just for restaurants, hotels, pubs, or takeaways. Most companies produce food waste of some sort and we make sure our services are available to all, by catering to any size and type of business.
Do your reputation a favour by taking out a recycling service with Direct365 and boast green initiatives to your consumers. We compare providers so you can rest easy knowing you’ve got the best deal possible. Call us today for an instant quote.
When it comes to recycling food waste, there are two common types of recycling:
In-vessel composting: This mixes food waste with garden waste, where it gets composted for 2-4 weeks in an enclosed system. The temperature in this enclosure is around 70˚C to speed up the composting process as well as kill harmful microbes. Once this process is complete, the new material is left to mature for up to 3 months before becoming soil conditioner.
Anaerobic Digestion (AD): This process uses microorganisms to break down the food waste. This process also uses an enclosed system, where there is an absence of oxygen to aid in breaking down the food waste. The result is methane coming off which is collected and converted into biogas. Biogas is used to generate electricity or heat. The AD process also creates a nutrient-rich material which is used as a fertiliser for land regeneration.
Both of these processes use food waste in a useful, inventive way which keeps waste from going to landfill.
