In the second in our FCC Environment-sponsored Resource Revolution leader video interview series, John Lewis Partnership's recycling and waste operations manager, Mike Walters, offers a compelling retail perspective on how corporate resource efficiency is reshaping the waste supply chain.Following the publication of edie's recent White Paper, he forecasts a dramatic change for the waste sector in 20 years' time, in which more on-site diversion and treatment solutions are adopted to cut down on logistics and where disposal costs for businesses are replaced by income streams."I don't think there will be something called waste, I think there will be end-of-first-life materials ... that's a phrase we are adopting now within our business."

Food Waste Collection and Recycling Service

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?
