news > 27/04/2012 - New Free Food Recycling Service on the Table soon

Food recycling

An Edinburgh-based green packaging firm is launching a new service to make it easier for small businesses to recycle their food waste.

Each year, the UK generates approximately 280 million tonnes of waste, more than half of which still ends up in landfill. To combat this, landfill tax increased from £56 to £64 a tonne on April 1 2012.

According to the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) there is the potential for businesses to save £23 billion through reducing waste and recycling more. 

Vegware, an award-winning eco-friendly food packaging outfit, has launched the Food Waste Network to increase organics recycling rates and divert waste from landfill. The free service, which will launch online in the summer, promises to provide comprehensive and up to date information on collection services and onsite recycling systems. It is for any UK business, but is primarily aimed at smaller restaurants and caterers looking for cost-effective local food waste recycling services, Vegware said. It is being introduced as businesses face another hike in their landfill tax and as part of wider efforts by central and local Government and the waste industry to improve waste management by small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

"The first key step to going zero waste is introducing food waste recycling. The Food Waste Network is a new free service to help any UK business find its ideal food waste recycling services," said Lucy Frankel of Vegware.

What a fantastic idea and great new service and like Giving World Online it is completely free and easy. Free initiatives that tackle waste and landfill issues are always welcome!
