 Food Organics Recycling

SWS are keen to explore the feasibility of introducing a dedicated organics collection service for your business. All food waste can be separated on-site and loaded into dedicated 120l organics recycling bins for collection and further processing, replacing a component of your general waste service.

This can also lead to even greater investment in alternative technology to reduce waste disposal costs and increase diversion from landfill.

The alternative options to a dedicated organics collection service are listed below. The processing of organics includes coffee grounds in some processes.


Onsite Processing of Food Waste (Options):

  • Dehydrators
  • Macerators
  • In-Vessel Composters
  • Pre-Digestion into holding tanks
