Bakery Waste Removal Services in the UK

Bakery Waste Storage

In alignment with UK regulations, it’s crucial for your bakery business to implement a robust waste management strategy. This encompasses the safe storage of waste until it’s collected by a certified waste carrier. At Waste King, we offer a versatile selection of bins, bags, and containers tailored for bakery waste storage needs.

Wheelie bins stand out as an optimal solution for managing food waste, which likely constitutes the bulk of your bakery’s refuse. Their effectiveness is unmatched, and they are available in capacities ranging from 240 to 1100 litres. Specifically, for food waste, we provide dedicated bins of 240 litres, whereas our other bins can accommodate general waste, paper, cardboard, and assorted recyclable packaging. These bins are designed in compliance with the Food Standards Agency (FSA) guidelines, ensuring durability, ease of cleaning, and colour coding for different waste types. Moreover, they are sealable to minimise the risks of pest infestation, leakage, and cross-contamination. Waste King offers complimentary delivery of one or more bins and provides flexible options to adjust as your business expands.

For situations where space is a premium or during peak business periods when bin capacity is exceeded, our prepaid waste bags are an ideal solution. They are designed for secure storage within wheelie bins or as a standalone option.

Furthermore, for handling large volumes of dry mixed recyclables like paper, cardboard, and certain types of packaging waste, we suggest considering our balers and compactors. These solutions are geared towards maximising efficiency and sustainability in your waste management practices.

Types of bakery waste

What is Bakery waste

We recognise that bakeries primarily generate food waste, encompassing everything from unsold confections to partially consumed pastries and overcooked treats. However, the scope of waste extends far beyond just edible remnants. Bakery operations also result in a diverse array of non-food waste, including:

  • Food Waste: This category includes both leftover food items that are no longer edible or sellable, as well as unused ingredients.
  • Packaging Waste: Materials such as plastic and cardboard used to package bakery products contribute significantly to overall waste.
  • Metal Trays: Essential for storing freshly baked goods like bread, metal trays are a common waste product in bakeries.
  • Plastic Trays: These are widely used to display a variety of baked items, adding to the waste stream.
  • Kitchen Equipment: Wear and tear on kitchen tools, leading to broken or damaged items like knives and rolling pins, generate waste.
  • WEEE Waste: Electrical appliances such as blenders that are no longer functional fall into this category.
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Items including aprons, hats, hairnets, gloves, and face masks are necessary for hygiene but contribute to the waste produced.

At Waste King, we offer comprehensive waste management solutions tailored to the unique needs of bakeries, helping to mitigate the impact of both food and non-food waste on the environment.

My wife booked a van to collect some building/garden rubbish, we got a phone call to let us know when they were 20 minutes away. Tom and Mo were brilliant, even the bits I thought would be to large or heavy were taken before I knew it, nothing was too much trouble and all done with a smile, will definitely use Wast King in the future.
