Fresh Start are one of the UK’s leading commercial food waste collection companies, and are specialists when it comes to recycling food waste in the North West.
There are thousands of establishments involved in the food industry in Cheshire, Lancashire, Merseyside and Greater Manchester, and while we know that not every morsel is going to be consumed, for every meal eaten in the country, there will be around half a kilo of foodstuff going to waste, whether through peelings, spoiling or leftovers.
Naturally, this all adds up extraordinary quickly.
As a nation, it’s a fact that 40% of the waste we throw away is food, with the majority still ending up rotting in landfill. This results in the leakage of huge amounts of methane gas, the equivalent of 10s of millions of tonnes of CO2 being released into the atmosphere.
It really doesn’t have to be this way at all. Food recycling both at home and at work is as simple as putting your scraps in the right bin, whether they be raw or already cooked, then we do the rest.
Here at Fresh Start, we can provide you with clearly branded external food containers – from wheelie bins to enormous roll-on/roll-off vessels – as well as on-site training to help you and your staff segregate the waste successfully.
We guarantee that 100% of your waste will be diverted away from landfill and into the Anaerobic Digestion process at one of our materials recovery facility in Manchester or Preston.
There, the uneaten food is treated and converted into clean, renewable energy, whether that be electricity, biofuel or even fresh compost. It helps your company reduced its carbon footprint and do its bit for cleaning up the local environment.
Every business has a duty of care to adhere to current food waste regulations, and as councils typically don’t collect rubbish from commercial premises, arrangements will need to be made for its disposal.
We serve clients in all areas of the food and drink sector, including manufacturers, kitchen waste from restaurants, bars and takeaways, as well as helping supermarkets, shops and bakeries deal with any out-of-date produce.
Our collections are regular, efficient and tailored to suit your needs, while our fleet of bin wagons are all satellite tracked and compliant with the latest Euro 5 and Euro 6 standards.
We aim to keep your costs to a bare minimum, so during our audit of your site, we’ll be able to discuss and agree the perfect bespoke food waste collection service at the best possible price.
