Food Waste Management

We can provide a range of containers for food waste storage, from 120 to 360 litre containers for external food storage to a range of internal caddies and containers for kitchens, canteens and food prep areas.

We also work with partners to provide equipment directly to sites where food waste volumes are high, minimising the volume leaving sites or producing a by-product which can be used in grounds maintenance on larger sites.

We will recommend the most appropriate solution depending on your individual needs and will ensure your collections are optimised, so you receive a hygienic and cost-effective service. All food waste containers are exchanged on collection and returned to an appropriate treatment facility.

Once at the facility, your food waste will be treated using anaerobic digestion, a sustainable treatment process which breaks down the organic material into biogas and biofertilisers, providing you with the most sustainable solution for your food waste.

Based in Essex, Zest Recycle provide a nationwide service. helping businesses throughout London and all major towns and cities throughout the UK with food waste recycling solutions. We take the time to get to know your business intimately, ensuring that we can create the perfect strategy for you. Interested? Get in touch today.
