Our goal is to provide regular food waste collection that makes commercial sense for businesses, improves the street scene experience by eliminating odours, contamination, pests and vermin infestation and large refuse vehicles from narrow streets and having a significant environmental benefit by recycling the food waste into energy and other useful by-products. It will deliver a tremendous boost to important retail areas and high profile tourist locations, greatly enhancing the local environment.
Food waste will be regularly collected from the kitchen door, eliminating the odour of rotting food or contaminating the environment. Pests, such as rodents, seagulls and flies will have no opportunity to cause a nuisance.
Reusable food caddies will be collected and exchanged using low impact, high capacity electric assist cargo bikes, to a consolidation site and transferred by a refuse vehicle for the short four mile journey to the waste-to-energy plant.
Food waste is part of the general waste stream. There is no requirement or incentive for businesses or households to separate food waste. Removing the dense, heavy food waste from the general business waste will mean reduced costs. They can remove overload penalties from their waste contractor. This will result in a cost effective, sustainable, low impact food waste solution, delivered by a community focused partnership for the benefit of local people and the local economy..
