What Do We Do?
At Food waste Scotland we offer a complete national waste recycling service, covering the whole of Scotland. From major cities in the Central Belt, to villages across the Highlands, we offer an effective solution to suit your businesses needs.
We are unique in that we only collect food waste utilising our own fleet of vehicles – we don’t believe in sub contracting. Covering the whole of Scotland, our national service means your business is never out of our reach. We have a dedicated customer service team who ensures you’ll get a local driver, and will only have one number to call.
We work with some of the most efficient licensed Anaerobic Digestion plants, with proven long-term, reliable, capability. The energy they create goes back into our community and the chemical free fertiliser is returned to the farms that ultimately grow the crops, that we eat!
Nothing is wasted
All of the food waste that we collect is recycled, nothing goes to landfill. We have a strong relationship between Scotland’s most progressive waste recycling organisation, the UK’s largest food waste recycling business, and proven, licensed Anaerobic Digestion plants based throughout Scotland. This minimises how far your collected waste has to travel therefore helping the environment, and provides the certainty that you need, with regular, reliable, food waste collections.
These relationships provide the key link between our customers who need food waste collected, and Anaerobic Digestion plants that need the feedstock to produce biogas and digestate for fertiliser.
Our food waste collection vehicles have been specially designed to uplift your bins in the safest way possible. They are also more energy efficient than standard refuse collection vehicles as the bin lift is electric, allowing the engine to be switched off when in use. Our vehicles also feature air tabs, aerofoils and tear drop fronts to ensure they are more fuel efficient.
Our drivers use handheld devices which ensures paper is not needed during the collection period. This allows you to receive instant confirmation regarding your waste recycling pickup, and we don’t create more waste that we have to recycle.
