Let’s tackle the problem of food waste!

February 21, 2017

The issue of food waste is becoming more prominent, and is now recurring headline news. According to the Waste and Resources Action Programme, 7.3 million tonnes of food waste ends up in landfill each year. Food waste in the UK has increased 4.4 per cent since 2012, despite a target to cut household waste by 5 per cent last year.

Encouraging waste management and recycling is something that we’re passionate about at Wybone and we’re always willing to meet other industry leaders to discuss ways that we can reduce food waste. We’re looking forward to attending the National Food Waste Conference organised by Lets Recycle on the 23 February at the Royal College of Physicians in London.

The national conference brings together industry leaders in several key sectors to consider the challenges that food waste presents and how councils and businesses can work together to reduce the problem which is costing British households £700 per day.

As the subject becomes more important, we have designed a range of food waste products. Our Food Waste Bin is manufactured from galvanised steel and features a slanted lid designed to allow rainwater to run off. Our food waste bins have a lift up flap on the lid that helps to contain unwanted odours and a stainless steel handle makes opening easy and hygienic.

We recently manufactured bespoke Wheelie Bin Covers for Dundee and Islington Councils. Being a flexible supplier and manufacturer allows us to create products to suit your requirements. Islington Council used our Stop and Drop Service where all bins were personally sited by Wybone staff.

If you’re looking for a smaller solution to your food waste, why not try our Kitchen Caddy. With a 7-litre capacity, our caddies are ideal for home and work environments for the collection of food waste such as potato peelings and uneaten foods. The green unit comes with a lid and handle for easy lifting and tipping.
