With trained drivers and specially-equipped vehicles, we take care of transport regulations, delivering your waste safely and securely to our state-of-the-art operations . There, our highly-qualified chemists inspect, categorise and segregate the waste before treatment, recovery and recycling processes begin. Our cost effective approach, married with our industry expertise and knowledge, ensures compliance at all times. That’s a choice you can’t afford to get wrong.

Thousands of tonnes of food are thrown away every day - most of it sent to expensive landfill, producing the greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change. But there is another way - Grundon’s dedicated food waste collection and recycling service for the hospitality, catering and retail sectors provides a more sustainable and cost-effective solution. We provide a tailored solution to suit our customers’ needs and our bin exchange system ensures that when we take away a full bin, we replace it with a fully sanitised bin to go straight into your kitchen. Additional benefits of the scheme include our ability to provide you with accurate data and reporting, detailing the true cost of food waste to your organisation. If you separate your food waste, we can deliver it to specialist anaerobic digestion facilities, creating renewable electricity, biogas and liquid fertiliser for the farming industry. It’s a win for the environment and it reduces both your carbon footprint and landfill tax bill. Considering that for every tonne of food waste sent to anaerobic digestion, the equivalent of 3 cars are taken off the road - isn’t that a step worth taking?

In an ideal world we’d like to think all waste can be reused, recycled or recovered – but that’s not always possible. Thanks to the latest technology, Grundon can transform your unwanted waste known as residual, non-recyclable or general waste - into much-needed renewable energy supplies. Our state-of-the-art Lakeside Energy from Waste - or EfW - facility, a joint venture with Viridor, provides a win-win solution. Not only does it use residual waste to generate 37MW of electricity for the National Grid - enough to power approximately 50,000 homes or a town the size of Slough - it also guarantees diversion from landfill, providing a much more sustainable approach to disposal. We know that recovering energy from waste is a smart move - let us help you generate the power of the future.
