We handle food waste in glass, plastic, metal and cardboard packaging
Swancote Energy is the only UK company to offer a complete food waste recycling service, encompassing all types of food packaging.
Recycling food waste and its packaging
Whether food waste comes in glass jars, plastic trays, tin cans or cardboard boxes, we have the facilities to sort the food from the packaging and to sort the packaging by material type. The packaging materials are then recovered for recycling, so that nothing recyclable need go to landfill or incineration.
Because we recycle the packaging that we receive, we are able to pass on cost savings to customers and offer more environmentally friendly waste management solutions.
So whether your food waste comes in glass, plastic, metal, cardboard or a mixture of these materials, you will find Swancote able to meet all your food waste disposal & recycling needs.
Glass bottles and jars
Glass can be recycled again and again without any degradation so when you use Swancote, you have the reassurance that this valuable commodity will not go to waste.
Plastic trays and bottles
We are the only UK food waste recycling company equipped with an optical sorter, enabling us to recover all rigid plastic packaging and separate it by type for recycling.
Metal cans and trays
Metal packaging is key in a circular economy. For example, making new cans from recycled material is 20 times more energy efficient than making them from scratch. Everything we receive is sorted by packaging type upon arrival, to ensure that each raw material is recovered efficiently.
Cardboard boxes and sleeves
Although our plant is mostly automated, cardboard packaging is often removed and recovered by hand, to ensure that it remains in optimum condition for recycling.
