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:

On average each year a restaurant throws away the food equivalent in weight to a London Routemaster Bus. The main areas of wastage are preparation, stock wastage and portion sizes.
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...
"Our family has been using Grays Waste since the 1960's. Despite getting other quotes over the years, we've always found Grays to offer the lowest rates. To remain competitive over 50 years takes some doing, and it shows how important it is for Grays to always stay ahead of their competition."
"Having the bins cleaned as part of the service really makes a difference. Can be off-putting for staff and customers if the bins don't smell great!."
"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."
