Food Waste Recycling

Biffa's Anaerobic Digestion (AD) facilities can process up to 315kT of food waste per year and operate 24/7

Our site at Poplars in Cannock can accept large volumes of food waste for reprocessing, as long as it can be bulked onto an artic. Your food waste is then converted into electricity through Anaerobic Digestion, improving your environmental credibility as your waste is used as a source of renewable energy. Click here to read more about our Anaerobic Digestion process.

Customer Benefits

  • Competitive pricing
  • Accessible site
  • 24/7 Operation
  • Open 7 days a week

We know that not everyone produces enough food waste to fill an artic, so if you produce smaller volumes of food waste these can be tipped at one of our food waste transfer stations, which is then bulked and sent to our Anaerobic Digestions plant for reprocessing.

Biffa also offers food waste collection service, and we provide you with a container to dispose of food waste. Food can be placed in bio-degradable bags or as loose waste and then deposited in the external container, ready for collection.
