Food recycling

Ellgia provides an innovative food waste recycling service to help their customers divert further waste away from landfill. According to *WRAP, 920,000 tonnes of food is thrown away every year by the hospitality and food service sector alone, costing £2.5 million and producing between 460,000 – 920,000 tonnes of CO².


Choose your Container Type

We offer waste collection in a variety of different container sizes to suit your needs.


Wheeled Bins

Our wheelie bins for hire are suitable for most office, school, commercial, retail or industrial sites.

Rear-end loader containers are designed to stay at the customer’s premises and services can be scheduled or collected on demand, depending on the waste volumes produced.


Front-end loaders

Ellgia operates a front-end loader service that is the most modern and cost-effective solution for waste collection.

Roll-on-off containers offer a service ideally suited to the movement of large volumes of all dry types of waste and bulky material.

What do we classify
as food recycling?

With its commitment to recycling, Ellgia sends all food waste to a local anaerobic digestion plant, where it is then broken down to produce biogas and bio-fertiliser.

As part of our innovative services we have invested in various different styles of containers, from sealed and covered skips to specifically designed wheelie bins to help smaller producers collect food waste. Our food recycling wheelie bins have rounded bottoms so that food waste doesn’t stick, and replacement liners that are provided on collection to keep the bins clean.


Here’s what can go in our food recycling collections:

Packaged food
Meat and fish (uncooked / cooked)

Vegetable peelings
Out-of-date products
Canned food
