From January 2023 all commercial outlets producing food are required to have a food waste collection service in place as part of legislation introduced by the British government.
Therefore, SWS are launching a new membership initiative called “EAT GREEN” encouraging all food producers to introduce a food waste recycling scheme within their organisation. By becoming an exclusive member of ‘Eat Green’ you will receive key information to promote to your clients what your company is doing as well as useful data allowing you to see how much food waste has been diverted from landfill as a result of joining Eat Green.
Up to 10% of global greenhouse gases come from food that is produced, but not eaten.

Working closely with the country’s leading investors and operators of Anaerobic Digestion or similar technologies, Sommers Waste Solutions are able to offer customers a service of linking food waste collections to processes that can convert food waste into renewable energy.
