Brightwaste advises all offices with more than 10 full time equivalent employees to collect food waste separately.
Yes please – Tea bags and coffee grounds, banana skins, apple cores, out of date food, eggs and egg shells.
No thank you – Food packaging, liquids.

We collect the food caddy weekly, or for larger jobs we use a food waste collection partner.
It is taken away and put into a large tank with no oxygen where it is anaerobically broken down and creates a fertilizer that can be used in farming, and also gives of a biogas that can be used for heat and electricity.
