From 1 April 2016 food businesses that produce more than 50kg of food waste per week have had to present that food waste for separate collection
By 1 April 2017 any food waste from 5kg and 50kg per week will have to be sent for separate collection. Food waste will no longer be allowed to be deposited in a lateral drain or sewer.
ISL offers a wide ranging Food and Organic Waste recycling service. We have been operating this service since August 2009 and have successfully diverted over 10,000 tonnes from landfill, increasing this year on year. This waste can be sent for either composting or anaerobic digestion.
We provide appropriately sized food caddies and biodegradable bags for any areas close to food waste generation and a suitably sized external bin for regular collection.
Our support service includes:
- Staff training and ongoing support on correct segregation
- Reports showing how much food waste you have diverted from landfill
