RECYCLE

Want to recycle your food waste sustainably?

Food waste can be transformed into something valuable. Once we’ve run out of capacity, we’ll create a database of organisations wanting to recycle their food waste to build a case for a larger digester in the area. We are looking for businesses, organisations, schools, universities etc. to recycle their food waste with us, particularly in the Kings Cross area.

Benefits

Local recycling can help create local jobs, divert organic waste from landfill and reduce waste transport miles.

In addition, by separating your food waste from other waste, it is possible to increase the amount of dry recycling (paper, cardboard, plastics, glass etc.) and so significantly reduce the amount of waste you send to landfill.

This can save costs, as landfill disposal charges will be £80 per tonne from 2014. In addition, methane emissions from landfill and waste transport emissions will be reduced, helping reduce your carbon footprint and raise your sustainability profile. Methane is a greenhouse gas, up to 20-30 times more potent than CO2.
