Food Recycling and Waste Management

In recent years, we have seen a rise in the amount of food waste getting recycled. No longer is food waste automatically seen as general waste. Food recycling is not just a service that restaurants, hotels, pubs, and takeaways need. Every business needs a food recycling service but for each type of business, and the size, the exact service will differ.

Our food recycling service will put everything in place for your business to recycling the food waste it produces.

Whatever you need, we will be able to get it to you at the best price. This is because we get prices from service providers nationwide. If your circumstances change, and amendments need to be made then we can do that as well.

The Food Recycling Process

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.
