ANDIGESTION CELEBRATES RECORD NUMBER OF WHEELIE BIN LIFTS

Our ‘one for one’ food waste wheelie bin collection service is used by a wide range of

customers in foodservice, education and food manufacturing across the South West. Each time a full

bin is collected for recycling, it is replaced by a fresh, sanitised one which means no mess, no smells and

no need for plastic liners.

“We’re delighted to have hit the 100,000 mark as it demonstrates an ever-growing commitment by

businesses to dispose of their food waste in a clean, green and cost-effective way,” comments Mike

Lowe, operations director.

Once the bins are collected, the food waste is taken either to our anaerobic digestion (AD)

recycling plant at Holsworthy, near Bude, which recycles up to 76,000 tonnes of the south west’s

household and commercial food waste each year, or to our Bishops Cleeve site near Cheltenham,

Gloucestershire. Through the AD process, Holsworthy produces 70MWhr of electricity per day - enough

to power 6,000 homes; Bishops Cleeve recycles up to 34,000 tonnes of food waste a year and through

the production of biomethane which is fed into the national grid, contributes enough energy for around

10,000 homes a year.
