Hear from some of our happy customers

"NRC completed a full site audit and advised us on improvements we could make increasing recycling and reducing costs. They worked with our team to help everyone understand what we are trying to achieve. We have since invested in new equipment and the waste management process is much more efficient – and we now recycle over 90% of our waste. The NRC team are responsive and attend site whenever we need them."

Waste Management Industry

What happens to my collected takeaway waste?

Recycling food waste uses innovative processes that transform the waste into valuable resources. Two of the most common methods of takeaway food waste disposal include:

  • Anaerobic digestion breaks down food waste without oxygen and is the main method used by NRC Business Waste and throughout the UK.
  • In-vessel composting uses specific temperatures to decompose food waste in a controlled environment.

Any takeaway food waste, from coffee grounds to banana skins, can be treated in this way. It’s a cost-effective and sustainable way to efficiently manage your restaurant waste disposal.

We are committed to sustainability in everything we do, proudly diverting 99% of the restaurant waste we collect away from landfills. Of this, 43% is recycled and 56% is converted into green energy.

FAQ’s

Frequently asked questions

Why is restaurant waste management important?

Restaurant waste management is important for a number of reasons, such as:

  • It helps to reduce your environmental impact - food waste that goes to landfill produces methane, a greenhouse gas that can be more harmful than carbon dioxide.
  • It saves money - by reducing food waste and recycling other materials, your restaurant can save money.
  • It can boost your reputation - streamlining waste management keeps your restaurant clean and green, which your customers will love.

What laws are there for restaurant waste management?

In the UK, waste guidelines are influenced by the current EU Waste Framework Directive. This guideline prioritises avoiding waste, then repurposing usable items, followed by recycling and recovery, with disposal being the last and least-favoured method to handle waste.
