Our Food Recycling Services

We provide food waste bins, as well as bin-cleaning and bin replacement to keep your food waste bins clean, secure, and fit for purpose. Our food collection services can also adhere to a schedule that works for you, so your waste is recycled on time. You can also track the positive effects and cost savings of recycling your food waste using our reporting platform.

Once collected, your food waste is transported to a specialised anaerobic digestion facility where the food decomposes and releases methane in a sealed tank. This is captured, treated for purity and fed back into the National Grid, while the remaining material is used as high-quality fertiliser.

The fertiliser created from your food waste is great for revitalising farmland and promoting growth without using any harmful chemicals, while biomethane is a clean source of renewable energy. Food waste recycling is a key in reducing emissions, which is something we aim to do with all our waste management services.

Food Recycling FAQs

Recycling food waste reduces how much of it enters landfill, where food can’t naturally biodegrade, releasing harmful greenhouse gases into the air. Throwing away food is also a waste of energy and water.

Our food collection service operates at your convenience, so it depends on the volume of food waste you create. At Bywaters, we offer a variety of tailor-made waste management solutions, so whatever your requirements, we are sure to have an option to suit your needs.

All you need to do is ensure your food waste is separated from regular waste, and put in the bins provided.

You should only place biologically degradable items, such as fruit, vegetables, eggshells, bread, biscuits, and non-liquid cooked food, in your food waste bin. If there is any excess food remaining on your packaging, the best course of action is to scrape the food into your food waste bin, then dispose of the packaging in the relevant dry mixed recycling or non-recycling bin.

You can reduce your food waste by only buying what you need, using up leftovers, and planning ahead to avoid purchasing any food you won’t use. Utilising your freezer storage is another good idea, as you can freeze food before it goes out of date, allowing you to use it in the future.
