Grays Waste use the latest technology, Anaerobic Digestion, to process all the food waste that is collected from our customers.
Simply put, it is a process that enables organic matter such as animal or food waste to be broken down to produce a methane-rich gas that can be used as a fuel and fertiliser. In even simpler terms, it turns waste into fuel.
Without processing organic matter or food waste by AD, the waste will end up in landfill creating significant levels of environmentally-damaging methane that is released into the atmosphere. Although methane is still created by breaking down organic waste at an AD plant, the methane gases are captured and utilised as a biogas rather than being lost in the atmosphere.
The UK is committed to producing more energy from sustainable renewable sources in order to limit climate change. In addition the UK also has a legal obligation under the EU landfill directive to reduce the amount of bio-degradable material being sent to landfill.
Each day we produce enough rubbish to fill Trafalgar Square to the height of Nelson's column.
Grays Waste Services have been servicing the waste management needs of London since 1947.
We are now proud to be one of the leading specialist food waste and category 3 waste collection companies...
"We have 10 restaurants across London, each one creating a different amount of food waste. Grays offer us a bespoke service, providing the relevant bin size for each of our restaurants. This keeps our cost at a minimum."
"We had several quotes in for setting up a weekly food waste collection. Grays Waste were the lowest, and we’ve not had any issues over the last 18 months of using the service."
"Knowing that all the food waste generated by our chain of restaurants is disposed of in the most environmentally friendly way means we can feel better about doing what we can for the environment and everyone’s future. It’s good to know that Grays take the environmental aspect so seriously."
