All about our Food Recycling Service
Food recycling, made easy
Recycling should already be an integral part of your business plan, but food recycling is often overlooked in a company’s recycling plan. With Direct365, you can rest assured that your food waste is handled quickly, efficiently and in full legal compliance. With the UK currently throwing out around 15 million tonnes of food waste per year, and growing, there’s no better time than now to kickstart your food recycling plan and help you cut down on those hefty landfill taxes.
The recycling process
The food waste we collect from you gets sent through an anaerobic digestion (AD) process, meaning that your old waste will be biologically broken down to produce biogas, which is a combination of methane and carbon dioxide. The absence of oxygen in the AD tanks allow us to capture the biogas, and feed it to engines, which then produce electricity. To find out more about what happens to your food waste, see our handy blog post.
