The London Borough of Tower Hamlets is occupied by the highest ethnic minority populations in the capital, and has over 15,000 businesses, many of which require regular food waste disposal. The London Borough of Tower Hamlets is considered to be the fastest growing borough in London, and has a high population of mixed ethnicity residents, particularly Bangladeshis. The London Borough of Tower Hamlets is best known for the 11th century Tower of London, and has the tallest buildings in London in the Isle of Dogs. The borough was once home to the largest ports in the world, but the old docks and warehouses are gradually being converted into housing and offices to meet the demand and popularity of the area. As of 2013 the population of Tower Hamlets was 288,000.
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 Tower Hamlets 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."
"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."
"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."
