Effortless Recycling Solutions

Restaurant Waste
Collection Service

We’re deeply committed to minimisings the environmental impact of excessive waste, particularly food waste from restaurants, which not only harms our planet by ending up in landfills but also incurs unnecessary costs for businesses. We believe that restaurant food waste, being organic, should be repurposed rather than discarded.

To address this, we offer cutting-edge food waste recycling technologies to businesses nationwide. Our services promote composting, alongside anaerobic digestion — a process where waste food is decomposed to produce biogas, which is then used to generate clean, renewable energy, and biofertiliser, enriching soil across agricultural fields.

Beyond food, we recognise that a vast array of restaurant waste, including packaging materials like cardboard, paper, plastics, and even glass, can be effectively recycled. These materials are processed and transformed into new products through sophisticated recycling methods. For instance, glass undergoes sorting, cleaning, crushing, heating, and moulding to become part of new glass items.

Waste King can equip your establishment with an all-encompassing food waste management system, aimed at maximising recycling efforts. Key to this initiative is the adoption of proper recycling bins, tailored for the various waste types your restaurant produces, ensuring a seamless and effective recycling process. Our goal is to empower your restaurant to significantly reduce its waste footprint, moving closer to a zero-waste operation.

Restaurant Waste Storage

At Waste King, we understand the crucial role of having dedicated bins for each waste type your business generates. Proper waste segregation not only facilitates recycling and disposal but also enhances your restaurant’s operational efficiency. Our comprehensive range of restaurant bins ensures that every aspect of your waste management plan is covered. Here’s what we offer:

  • Food Waste Bins: Available in 120 or 240 litres, our food bins are designed to exclusively contain food waste. For added protection against pests, such as seagulls and rodents, we offer models with a specialised hatch.
  • Cardboard Bins: To manage recyclable cardboard efficiently, especially for restaurants that accumulate large quantities, we recommend our cardboard bins. For those looking to maximise space, consider our balers to compress cardboard, making storage more convenient.
  • Glass Bins: Our 120 and 240 litre wheelie bins are perfect for storing all colors of glass bottles and jars for recycling.
  • Aluminium Can Bins: Separate bins for metal cans ensure that aluminium recycling is streamlined, reducing your environmental footprint.
  • General Waste Bins: For waste that cannot be recycled or reused, our general waste bins are essential. Educating your team on what can be recycled is key to minimising recyclable materials ending up in landfills.

Waste King offers bins in various sizes, catering to the needs of diverse establishments, from quaint cafes to bustling gastropubs. Let us help you select the ideal bins for your restaurant, ensuring your waste management practices are as efficient and effective as possible.
