Food Waste

Acumen’s food waste service guarantees that organic waste is collected and disposed of in the most appropriate way.

Segregating your food waste from general waste avoids landfill and supports the principles of a circular economy. Segregation also provides a cleaner and more hygienic working environment along with increasing your recycling percentages and reducing your disposal costs.

What happens to your food waste?

Food waste is composted or subject to Anaerobic Digestion process*

It’s processed in large enclosed vessels, using naturally occurring aerobic microbes to break down the waste. Once this process is complete,  the material is no longer classed as waste and can be used for compost.

*Anaerobic digestion is a natural decomposition process done under an oxygen free environment

Our services include:

  • A clean and odour free 240ltr waste food bin
  • Scheduled collections to meet your demands
  • A specially designed food waste collection vehicle
  • A total waste management package
  • Skips and compactors for large food disposal
  • Rejected packaged food
  • De- packaging services
  • Free site audit to advise what is required
  • A dedicated customer service team who can track your collection
