Why Recycle?

The UK produces 8.3 million tonnes of food waste and green waste each year.

If this allowed to break down in landfill, food waste can produce methane – a greenhouse gas is 20 times more potent than CO2 – and a liquid, called leachate (essentially bin juice), which can contaminate water supplies.

Recycling more food and green waste is the environmentally sound solution for tackling this problem. It is also vital that the UK meets the terms laid out in the Landfill Directives Act.

Why Recycle?

Landfill is also the most expensive place to send your organisation’s waste. Recycling food waste costs considerably less.

By recycling your waste with Cannington Waste Management Services, you are helping to reduce climate change and protect the environment.

It doesn’t matter if you are a small company or international chain – you can make a difference by disposing of your waste in an environmentally friendly way, and we are here to help you do just that.
