The UK is committed to producing more energy from sustainable renewable sources in order to limit climate change.
In addition, the UK also has a legal obligation under the EU landfill directive to reduce the amount of bio-degradable material being sent to landfill.
Legislation is on its way which requires businesses to recycle their food waste. All UK waste policies emphasise the need to reduce food waste to landfill, and Scotland is the first to introduce this legislation, which you can see below:
Rules on food waste, taken from the Food Standards Agency: https://www.food.gov.uk/business-industry/caterers/food-hygiene/food-waste
We throw away 7.2 million tonnes of food every year, and more than half of that is perfectly edible. Meanwhile, one in seven people across the world doesn't have enough to eat.
Grays Waste Services have been servicing the waste management needs of London since 1947.
We are now proud to be one of the leading specialist food waste and category 3 waste collection companies...
"We have 10 restaurants across London, each one creating a different amount of food waste. Grays offer us a bespoke service, providing the relevant bin size for each of our restaurants. This keeps our cost at a minimum."
"With the legislation for food waste changing rapidly, it is important for our organisation that our waste service provider ensures that they are consistently compliant with all regulations, and that they ensure we are compliant also."
"Knowing that all the food waste generated by our chain of restaurants is disposed of in the most environmentally friendly way means we can feel better about doing what we can for the environment and everyone’s future. It’s good to know that Grays take the environmental aspect so seriously."
