Gather is a food waste collection service for businesses that want to reduce their impact on the environment
How does it work?
Firstly you'll need to internally separate your food waste from the other waste streams. Take a look at the uBin, they make this really easy
Then place your food waste into an external bin that we'll provide free of charge. Only food waste in clear plastic sacks can be accepted
We schedule the Gather truck to visit your site as regularily as you'd like and charge per bin
The food waste is taken to your local anaerobic digestion plant where a complex biological process speeds up it's breakdown. The gasses produced are used to generate electricity
Why recycle food waste?
Breaking down in landfill, food waste can produce methane – greenhouse gas 20 times more potent than CO2 – and a liquid, called leachate (essentially bin juice), which can contaminate water supplies.
By segregating your food waste you avoid landfill altogether and minimise your impact on the environment.
Furthermore the cost of sending waste to landfill is on the increase. In 2014, recycling a tonne of food waste cost at least £60 less than sending it to landfill.
