The benefits for food waste producers

Treating waste through our anaerobic digestion process is significantly cheaper than sending it to a landfill site or a composting plant. We have developed our systems so we can process waste for around a third of the cost of sending it to landfill, ensuring that your disposal costs are greatly reduced.

The benefits for farmers

The end result of our process is a nutrient rich digestate biofertliser which can be spread to land to reinvest its nutrient content into new crop growth. Digestate is a black liquid similar to the thickness of gravy.

Andigestion, the food waste recycling provider, has launched a new wheelie bin food waste collection service for businesses in Devon such as restaurants, café’s, hotels and all types of foodservice operators, as well as schools and colleges.

According to the food waste recycling specialist, Andigestion’s Holsworthy plant was the UK’s first ‘food only’ anaerobic digestion plant. The company said it currently processes around 70,000 tonnes a year of residential and commercial food waste from across Devon to produce electricity which is put back into the national grid for use in local homes. The by-product is a liquid fertiliser that local farmers can use in place of carbon intensive mineral fertilisers.

“Our new wheelie bin service now enables small and medium-sized businesses in Devon to also dispose of their food waste and leftovers in an efficient, clean and green eco-friendly way,” said Mike Lowe, operations director at Andigestion.

“Customers can place food directly into our bins, whether packaged or unpackaged, cooked or uncooked. We can take peelings, out of date food, plate scrapings, damaged stock, frozen or chilled foods, so there’s no mess, smells or liners for our customers to have to worry about,” he added.

“Following the success of our similar wheelie bin service in Gloucestershire, it would be great to see businesses and organisations in Devon also signing up to the scheme to reduce their environmental impact.”

Andigestion pointed out that customers will also benefit from the company’s wheelie bin exchange where clients have their full food waste bin swapped for a fresh, steam-cleaned bin each week.

The new service was welcomed by Tiverton & Honiton MP Neil Parish who attended the Wheelie Bin launch at Shebbear College, Beaworthy – Devon’s first school to sign up to the new scheme.

“We are all constantly trying to reduce the amount of food waste that goes to landfill – it’s a very big issue which affects us all,” commented Parish, chair of the environment, food & rural affairs select committee.

Sue Letchford, finance coordinator at Shebbear College, an independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 3 to 18, added: “We are an eco-school so green issues are an important part of our school culture and ethics. We encourage pupils to recycle in all sorts of ways on a day to day basis, so this new service perfectly complements our commitment to tackling food waste and reducing landfill.”


We offer services that can benefit all types of business.
