Food Waste Collections
Does your business produce a lot of food waste? Gaskells can offer your business a cost-effective, sustainable solution for the collection of your food waste.
By separating food waste from your general waste you will reduce the frequency of service and will see significant weight reductions in your general waste container.
In addition to reducing your costs you will also ensure complete diversion from landfill as instead, your food waste will be reprocessed to create eco-friendly fuels such as biogas through the Anaerobic Digestion process.

What is classed as food waste?
Food waste is defined as any food or substance which is intended to or needs to be disposed of, this can be;
- Out of date food from shops and supermarkets
- Left over food and waste from food preparation
- Food in some packaging
- Animal feeds
Where should food waste be stored?
Gaskells have bins specifically for food waste, which are 240 litre in size. (the size of a wheelie bin at home). All food waste should be put in there, which we will then legally and responsibly dispose of. One of the ways we deal with food waste is by using the innovative Anaerobic Digestion process, which creates biogas which is used to generate electricity and heat.
We have lots more information on food waste over on our food recycling page. If you would like any more information or would like to speak to our team regarding a free site audit then do not hesitate to get in touch.
