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.
Legislation is on its way which requires businesses to recycle their food waste. All UK waste policies emphasise the need to reduce food waste to landfill, and Scotland is the first to introduce this legislation, which you can see below:

We throw away 7.2 million tonnes of food every year, and more than half of that is perfectly edible. Meanwhile, one in seven people across the world doesn't have enough to eat.
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 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."
"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."
"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. "
