Food Waste Recycling and Collections from Biffa

No matter what kind of business or organisation you run, the odds are that you will need some kind of food waste management. From offices with canteens to coffee shops and restaurants, we offer food waste and food recycling collections for companies of all sizes. 

At Biffa, we specialise in running a convenient and cost effective food waste management service.

When you organise your food waste collection through Biffa, we go above and beyond to make sure that the service you receive is tailored to your need. We can organise a waste audit for you, which will help both you and us to understand the commercial food waste collection needs of your business. We know how important it is to dispose of food waste safely, which is why we will provide a bespoke service tailored to your specific business requirements and waste volumes. As well as providing you with a bespoke service for your business, we also provide you with the ideal food recycling bins to dispose of your food waste in a responsible way. 

How Recycle Your Food Waste Into Energy

When food waste is collected by a member of our team, it then makes its way to one of our local Anaerobic Digestion facilities that are positioned throughout the UK.

Our Anaerobic Digestion facilities are fantastic sites that use high end technology to make the most out of any food waste. Here food waste will be processed and ultimately converted into renewable energy. By doing this we can help you control, and potentially reduce, your waste costs by recycling commercial food waste into usable energy that can go into powering lights, appliances, and other electronic devices. 

Of course, not everyone produces large amounts of food waste. A small café, for instance, will produce less food waste than a food processing plant – and so, when we collect smaller amounts of waste it is often collected at one of our food waste transfer stations. From there, smaller amounts of waste can be collated together before being recycled. 

At Biffa, our Anaerobic Digestion facilities operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to process up to 315kT of food waste per year.

Benefits of Food Waste Collection With Biffa

There are a large number of benefits to having a local food waste collection service with Biffa.

  • Biffa are one of the UK’s leading food waste collection and recycling service providers.
  • We help you get ahead of and adhere to anticipated food waste regulations.
  • In the ideal world, everything would be recycled and nothing would go into landfill. Unfortunately, we are still a way off that from being a reality; however, we will help you to divert as much waste as possible away from landfill.
  • We provide a nationwide service that can collect your food waste daily or weekly, depending on your preference.

Food Waste Recycling Services

We can process large amounts of food and help turn them into usable energy. The food waste we can process includes:

  • Industrial food by-product, solid and liquid wastes.
  • Waste from agriculture, manufacturing, as well as waste from food and drink processing.
  • Out-of-Date, unsaleable food, and food from shops/supermarkets.
  • Food preparation waste and left-over food from restaurants and cafes. 
  • Packaged food waste.
  • Bakery waste.

When you sign up to food waste collections from Biffa, an external container (that is clearly branded for food waste) will be supplied. Food can be placed in the bin either as loose waste or in bio-degradable bags before being placed in the bin, ready for collection. If your business needs something different, we can offer food waste bag collection service at locations where space is at premium for bulk containers and tankers for larger volumes of waste.
