Islington is one of London’s smallest boroughs by area, covering only 15km yet it is the second most densely populated borough in London. The population of Islington is young, with just 4.5% of the population over the age of 75. Islington also has the lowest percentage of car owners per household – just 0.5 vehicles per household. The London Borough of Islington has a thriving economy, and has a unique cultural identity as well as a very diverse population. The UK has a legal obligation under the EU Directive to reduce the amount of bio-degradable material being sent to landfill, and with almost 17k businesses in Islington, many of which being restaurants, having a reliable and professional food waste collection service is very important.
Just one litre of used cooking oil can generate enough electricity to light a 20W energy saving light bulb for over 225 hours.
Grays Waste Services have been servicing the waste management needs of Islington 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."
"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."
