Why recycle your food waste?

By recycling food waste, this will divert a significant amount of waste from landfill, thus lowering your potential exposure to the increasing landfill taxes and landfill disposal gate fees. Future proof your waste costs.

Enhance your environmental profile

Weir Waste’s weekly collection service ensures that your food waste is segregated effectively by issuing a dedicated food waste wheelie bin.

Segregating your food waste in this way significantly lowers the weight of your general waste bin and provides a real opportunity to lower your general waste costs.

Weir Waste provides wheelie bin liners with every collection, keeping the bins clean at all times ensures full compliance with Environmental Health requirements.

Your food waste is processed at licensed regional Anaerobic Digestion Plants. The food waste is composted in a controlled environment without the presence of air. A natural biological reaction takes place, where bacteria grows and digests the food waste. Biogas is then released as a by-product.

Once treated this can be injected into the mains gas grid or used as a fuel to power a Biogas generator which creates renewable energy. The digested food waste becomes rich agricultural compost that can be used as a sustainable alternative to chemical based fertilisers.
