Islington is one of London’s smallest boroughs by area, covering only 15km yet it is the second most densely populated borough in London. The population of Islington is young, with just 4.5% of the population over the age of 75. Islington also has the lowest percentage of car owners per household – just 0.5 vehicles per household. The London Borough of Islington has a thriving economy, and has a unique cultural identity as well as a very diverse population. The UK has a legal obligation under the EU Directive to reduce the amount of bio-degradable material being sent to landfill, and with almost 17k businesses in Islington, many of which being restaurants, having a reliable and professional food waste collection service is very important.
On average each year a restaurant throws away the food equivalent in weight to a London Routemaster Bus. The main areas of wastage are preparation, stock wastage and portion sizes.
Grays Waste Services have been servicing the waste management needs of Islington since 1947.
We are now proud to be one of the leading specialist food waste and category 3 waste collection companies...
"Our family has been using Grays Waste since the 1960's. Despite getting other quotes over the years, we've always found Grays to offer the lowest rates. To remain competitive over 50 years takes some doing, and it shows how important it is for Grays to always stay ahead of their competition."
"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."
