Food Waste Reduction Strategies for Businesses: Partnering with Keenan Recycling for a Greener Future

In this rapidly evolving world, addressing environmental challenges has become a priority for businesses and individuals. As a leading nationwide commercial food waste collection service, Keenan Recycling understands the pressing need for innovative food waste solutions in the UK. We are committed to making a lasting difference by offering cutting-edge and efficient services to all our customers, which include restaurants, hotels, care homes, hospitals, prisons, waste management companies, brokers, and councils. This blog delves into the critical importance of commercial food waste management and its pivotal role in shaping a more sustainable, eco-friendly future.

In the UK alone, the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) reports that over 9.5 million tonnes of food waste are wasted annually, with a considerable portion generated by businesses. We take steps to combat this growing issue. Recognising the urgency to tackle food waste, Keenan Recycling strives to provide solutions for waste reduction and recycling solutions. Read on to discover the benefits and impact of our services and how they contribute to a greener tomorrow.

The Critical Need for Food Waste Solutions UK

As environmental challenges continue to grow, the demand for effective food waste solutions in the UK has never been more urgent. By developing and implementing sustainable food waste disposal strategies, we can achieve significant benefits for both our environment and society:

  • Reduced carbon footprint: When food waste decomposes in landfills, it produces methane. This greenhouse gas is approximately 28 times more potent than carbon dioxide in its potential to cause global warming. By utilising Keenan Recycling’s organic waste recycling services, businesses can significantly reduce the volume of waste sent to landfills and decrease methane emissions. This results in a smaller carbon footprint and a positive impact on climate change mitigation efforts.
  • Resource efficiency: Keenan Recycling’s food waste recycling initiatives capitalise on the hidden value of waste, turning it into renewable energy through a process called anaerobic digestion. This innovative procedure involves breaking down organic matter in an oxygen-free environment, transforming food waste into biogas and nutrient-rich biofertiliser. The biogas produced can be harnessed for various purposes, including electricity generation, heating, or as biofuel for transport. This resource efficiency minimises waste, contributes to the UK’s renewable energy targets, and reduces our reliance on fossil fuels.

Advantages of Recycling Food Waste

By embracing sustainable food waste solutions, businesses in the UK can significantly contribute to the global movement towards a greener, cleaner future. Keenan Recycling’s services offer advantages that extend beyond environmental impact:

  1. Enhanced brand reputation: Businesses that adopt sustainable food waste management practices can enjoy an improved brand reputation. Committing to the environment resonates with environmentally conscious consumers, increasingly seeking responsible companies.
  2. Cost savings: Sustainable food waste disposal methods can lead to cost savings in waste management. By partnering with Keenan Recycling, businesses can reduce waste disposal costs and increase operational efficiency.
  3. Legal compliance: In Scotland, if you are a commercial food waste business and produce more than 5 kg of food waste, you must separate this from general waste. Similar Legislation is likely to be introduced in Wales in 2023, with England following soon after. With Keenan Recycling’s food waste solutions, businesses can ensure compliance with these regulations while fulfilling their environmental obligations.

Implementing Food Waste Reduction Strategies

At Keenan Recycling, we actively promote food waste reduction strategies to encourage businesses to rethink their waste management practices. By partnering with us, companies can take advantage of our expertise:

  • Conduct waste audits: We assess our clients’ waste disposal methods, identifying areas for improvement and providing tailored recommendations to reduce food waste.
  • Employee training: Our team offers education and training sessions to help businesses understand and implement best practices for food waste management.
  • Accurate weighing: Each bin on our vehicles is individually weighed. The weights of these bins are given back to the customer, so they may track how much food waste they generate. These weights are an excellent measure for organisations and customers to assess how much food they are wasting that might be prevented. Tracking food waste enables you to determine what may contribute to these vast volumes.
