Regular collection services are available at a frequency to suit your requirements.
Will food waste collection reduce my costs?
Yes. Separating food waste (which is heavy) from general waste will reduce your landfill requirements and resulting costs. At Central Waste, we pride ourselves on our competitive prices. We are happy to discuss how much you can save through separate food waste recycling.
How is food waste stored?
We supply strong and sturdy bins suitable for a variety of food waste. We will discuss with you how best to store your food waste and determine the appropriate bins for hygiene and recycling. To improve hygiene, our standard 240 litre bin comes with a clear bin liner which is replaced every time we empty the bin.

What is food recycling?
While food is biodegradable, it produces carbon dioxide during this process, which contributes to global warming. When food waste is recycled, it is broken down into components via a process known as Anaerobic Digestion. This process enables plant and animal substances to be broken down by micro-organisms. This can then be burned like fossil fuels, to create energy.
Which areas do we cover?
We will make waste food collections throughout the Merseyside area, including Wirral. We currently pick up from Liverpool city centre, town centres and high streets.
