Reviews from clients in the London area

  • "With the legislation for food waste changing rapidly, it is important for our organisation that our waste service provider ensures that they are consistently compliant with all regulations, and that they ensure we are compliant also."

  • "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!."

  • "We have used Grays Waste for 7 years and have found them to be reliable and professional throughout. Having used some other food waste companies previously, it became clear how much better the service offered by Grays actually is. Thanks again. "
