Food Waste Collection


The food waste collection service from Martlands ensures that your food waste does not go into landfill, but instead is reused and processed to improve sustainability and protect the environment.

Food Waste Collection

Our food waste collection and recycling service is ideal for businesses in the retail, hospitality and catering sectors, such as pubs and clubs, restaurants and fast food takeaways, hotels, canteens and food processing facilities.

Why recycle your food waste?

Disposing of food waste without recycling it is a waste of energy and harmful to the environment. Most of the food waste collected from businesses is currently sent to landfill and left to biodegrade. This releases greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and methane and so it contributes to climate change. When you recycle your food waste, it reduces your company’s carbon footprint.

Food waste collected by our food waste collection service is taken to our anaerobic digestion facility for processing. There, naturally occurring microorganisms break it down to produce biogas and nutrient-rich fertiliser that can be used by agriculture. The biogas is converted into renewable electricity and fed into the National Grid.
