Food Waste Collection

Feefo logo

Every year, households and businesses throw away over 7.2 million tonnes of food and drink which, as well as costing £12 billion a year, also wastes resources, damages the environment, is expensive (£100+ landfill tax per tonne), and is a waste of an excellent source of recyclable energy.

The SafeGroup offers a solution, if you are looking to


  • Save cost on waste disposal.
  • Reduce your company’s carbon footprint.
  • Operate a more environmentally sustainable business.

We will provide food waste bins which will fit into your kitchen and be collected on a scheduled weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis with minimal fuss and disruption.

Your waste will be collected and taken for anaerobic digestion which means 100% of it will be diverted from landfill. The digesters produce gas which is converted to clean energy and the residue produced being recycled as compost, going back on to the land to nourish new plants.

Freezer Breakdowns

Over the last 3 years the SafeGroup has made a name for itself in working with some of the UK’s largest supermarkets to ensure that when refrigeration units fail the condemned food products are removed from site within 4 hours, anywhere in the UK.

Our service is operated around the clock with our national call centre set up to look after your account, giving your team a unique national free phone number where any breakdown can be logged and actioned for immediate collection anywhere in the UK.

We offer the following services:

  • Under 4 hour to site service, 24 hours a day anywhere in the UK.
  • Site bagging of loose food waste.
  • Shelf cleansing following food removal prior to restocking.

From a basic pre-bag collection service to a comprehensive shelf clear, clean and bagging service our aim is to free up your staff’s time to get on with the important process of restocking the shelves with fresh produce.

In addition to the above, all food waste is 100% diverted from landfill ensuring that you complete all your environmental compliances and green credits.
