Food Waste Collections

For businesses in Scotland, the legislation surrounding the disposal of food waste changed on January 2014, with the rest of the UK set to follow suit.  Following the recent change in food waste regulation:

  • Any business which produces over 50kg of food waste per week must ensure that it is collected separately of other waste.
  • All businesses which produce food waste of over 5kg will be required to collect and dispose of this waste separately from 2016 onwards.
  • Where food collection services are available it will be against the law to dispose of food by using a public sewer

In order to comply with frequently changing commercial food waste legislation, it is essential to work with a professional waste management service you can trust to provide you with the expert advice and services your business needs.  Failing to do so could result in your business falling foul to legislative changes which render your current food waste disposal strategies illegal, putting you at risk of prosecution.
