Reviews from clients in Barking & Dagenham and the London area

  • "Having the option to change our food waste collection frequency is very useful. It means we aren't overcharged for unnecessary collections."

    Restaurant Owner
  • "Having the bins cleaned as part of the service really makes a difference. Can be off-putting for staff and customers if the bins don't smell great!."

  • "After one of our delivery drivers was involved in a road accident whilst transporting a large quantity of frozen food, we needed an emergency collection to remove and dispose of the vast quantity of food items. We chose Grays Waste who arrived within the hour, removed the food waste and we feel offered a very reasonable price considering the urgency of the matter."
