Who produces Catering Waste

Every establishment involved in the preparation of food for customer consumption engages in some form of catering. Consequently, all waste produced during the food preparation process is classified as catering waste. This applies even to simple food preparation activities, such as assembling sandwiches in a care home. Facilities with onsite catering services, ranging from shopping malls to campgrounds, necessitate some level of catering waste management.

Waste King specialises in catering waste management for a wide array of businesses, including:

  • Restaurants
  • Hotels
  • Kitchens
  • Pubs, bars, and clubs
  • Care homes
  • Takeaways

Our expertise ensures that your catering waste is handled efficiently, adhering to environmental standards and regulations, without the need for you to worry about the specifics.

Transforming Catering Waste

Types Of
Catering Waste

Waste King offers a comprehensive range of waste disposal solutions tailored for various types of waste your organisation produces. Our eco-friendly practices include:

  • Cooking Oil Recycling: We collect used cooking oil in secure drums, which is then processed to produce biodiesel or utilised in generating electricity, supporting sustainable energy initiatives.
  • Food Waste Conversion: We transport food waste to certified biogas facilities, where it undergoes decomposition by microorganisms. This process produces methane gas, a renewable energy source that can power both industries and residential areas.
  • Organic Waste: Biodegradable waste is transformed into organic fertiliser, promoting eco-friendly agriculture and enhancing soil fertility.
  • Plastic Recycling: We ensure plastic items, such as bottles, cutlery, and containers, are sent to recycling plants. This practice aids in reducing pollution and conserving resources by reintroducing them into the manufacturing cycle.
  • Glass Recycling: Glass bottles are processed at specialised facilities, cleaned, and melted down to produce new glass products or materials for construction, further contributing to environmental conservation efforts.

Through these initiatives, Waste King is committed to sustainable waste management, aiming to minimise environmental impact and support recycling and renewable energy production.

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.
