At Andigestion, we process around 100,000 tonnes of food waste and effluents annually. This waste comes from local authorities, industrial food manufacturers and processors, bakeries, fish wholesalers, pubs, restaurants, abattoirs – from practically any business or enterprise that generates food waste.
We offer a collection service to all sizes of business, some generating up to 100 tonnes a week of waste, others generating as little as 20kgs. The methods of storing and transportation vary according to the size and needs of our customers, and include bulk trailers, tankers, curtain-siders, skips, wheelie bins and pallet boxes.
Waste collections are made with the appropriate frequency to match the requirements of our clients, and vary from every day of the week to once a fortnight.
Processing of Packaged Food Waste
We have invested heavily in our depackaging operation, which allows us to take packaged food wastes from manufacturers, distributors, supermarkets and shops, and separate the food from the packaging for onward processing in the plant.
We analyse new waste streams before accepting them at our plants to assess the gas making potential and possible impacts on the process. We offer this service free of charge to potential clients if they are unsure on whether their waste stream is suitable.
So whatever the size of your business, we can help you improve your green credentials, and your bottom line, by treating your waste in the most environmentally sustainable method.
Andigestion offer a fully traceable, safe and secure destruction process that will protect brand identity and black market re-sales. All organic waste is removed from its packaging by our depackaging machines and processed via anaerobic digestion. At our Holsworthy plant every part of the packaging is securely shredded, bulked and destroyed by incineration at an Energy from Waste facility with the benefits of generating energy from your waste packaging too. With this we can guarantee zero waste to landfill. At our Bishops Cleeve facility the shredded waste is disposed of via the adjacent landfill site.
All goods received are processed as soon as possible and monitored by CCTV, a Certificate of Destruction is issued for your audit trail and peace of mind.
