If you use single-use items like coffee cups or disposable towels, you may have decided to swap to more sustainable compostable alternatives. This is a great first step towards becoming greener, but to unlock the full environmental benefits of using compostables, they need to be collected separately and composted.
We have partnered with Vegware and Scrummi to allow you to compost these items instead of being sent for incineration, or put into landfill. We transform your items into closed loop compost, which you can buy back here.
We can accept materials certified to the following standards;
- BS EN 13432
- BS EN 14995
- ASTM 6400
How do we collect?
- Perfect for high volume recycling
- Easy transportation
- Bin exchange service where we swap your full bin for a clean and sanitised bin each time
- Ideal for customers with limited storage space
- Collection on pavement outside your building (only available in certain areas)
- Great for smaller volumes
