waste management solutions
designed for the food and leisure sector

Select provide service solutions to suit all different types of businesses, including: food manufacturers, restaurants and leisure facilities with canteens. This particular waste management solution is dedicated to the food and leisure industry. Waste disposal prices are generally sky-high within this sector due to dense/heavy waste streams such as food waste and glass. Select propose that; if your remove all your heavy waste (food waste and glass) from the general waste you will be left with clean general waste which that can be segregated further for dry mixed recycling and paper & cardboard.

With the 2011 Waste Regulation (England and Wales) now in place it is the responsibility of all businesses to follow the waste hierarchy (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Recover and Disposal). From a waste management point of view, recycling is best practice. In the short term this can seem to be a costly exercise, but by choosing the greener way (recycling) you will reduce your environmental impact and save money. If you are working towards UKAS ISO 14001 or maintain the standard with continual improvement, our solutions are a great way to do this.

Below is an example of a range core waste management services suited to the food and leisure sector:
