As more of us choose to pass on conventional plastics we're seeing growing numbers of alternative options on the market. Compostable packaging products largely made from plant materials, are now increasingly being used in the foodservice industry where a single-use solution is needed. With the right treatment, compostables can be transformed into nutrient rich compost giving them a useful second life.
After extensive trials we've partnered with Vegware, the compostables market leader, to offer a best-practice solution with customer engagement at its heart. With our new service, Vegware foodservice containers, cutlery and cups are transformed into quality compost in 7-weeks along with residue food that would not normally be recovered with conventional food waste collection systems.
