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.
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• Out-of-date products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
