Food Waste Recycling

Food waste recycling is becoming an increasingly common waste disposal strategy across the UK, and the reasons for this are clear. Rather than dumping food waste into landfill, food waste recycling offers businesses the ability to reduce their costs and reduce their carbon footprint, helping them improve the sustainability of their business. If your company is looking to reduce its costs and dispose of its waste in a more environmentally friendly manner, Big Green can help you achieve those aims. We can provide food waste recycling bins for your business and offer the collection and disposal services your business requires.

Legislation has already been passed in Scotland which sets requirements for the way in which businesses and organisations which produce more than 50kg of food waste per week deal with that waste and its good practice to adhere to these rules for all UK businesses.

If you are a business or organisation in Scotland the law now requires that:

Any business which produces over 50kg of food waste per week must ensure that it is collected separately of other waste.

Where food collection services are available it will be against the law to dispose of food by using a public sewer

Further to this, legislation states that:

All businesses which produce food waste of over 5kg will be required to collect and dispose of this waste separately from 2016 onwards.

With legislation already passed in Scotland, the rest of the UK is set to follow suit and bring in legislation to cover the disposal of food waste.

At Big Green, we can provide the waste management services businesses in Scotland and the UK require to help them ensure they are fully compliant with the recent legislative changes. We can provide bins for the separate storage of food waste and we can provide the necessary collection and disposal services our clients in Scotland need to ensure their food waste is recycled.

Across the rest of the UK, we offer the same services to help businesses adapt before legislation is introduced, helping clients reduce their costs and increase the sustainability of their business.

For all of our clients, we can guarantee a highly professional and efficient waste management service, keeping costs low and quality high to ensure the businesses we work with are always completely satisfied with the waste management services we provide.

Call our team today for a free-no-obligation quote on the food waste recycling services we provide to businesses and organisations across the country. We can take care of all your food waste recycling needs, ensuring that if you are a business in Scotland you are fully compliant with food waste regulations, and if you are a business in the rest of the UK you lower your costs and increase sustainability.
