Solutions for composting Vegware and food waste


Close The Loop


Vegware’s compostable packaging is designed to be recycled together with food waste. Vegware has over a decade of experience in delivering food and packaging waste recycling solutions. Our Environmental team helps foodservice providers close the loop and join the circular economy, providing support every step of the way.

Our unprecedented engagement with the waste industry allows us to work with waste collectors to ensure compostable packaging and food waste is collected for commercial composting.

Vegware has set up zero waste systems with collections for clients around the UK, from corporate clients in Aberdeen and London to food fairs in Devon. At Dundee & Angus College, on-site composting provides a solution creating quality mulch in 14 days for its horticultural courses.


Close the Loop

To add to existing composting regions, we have now launched Close the Loop, our own composting collection service. We collect clients’ used Vegware and food waste for commercial composting, creating high-grade compost in a matter of weeks. So your catering waste helps to feed future crops.

Our collection service is competitively priced and completely flexible with no contract tie-ins and the option to rearrange at short notice. We also provide a new clean bin with every collection.

Close the Loop is available in most of Scotland, where used Vegware and food waste is composted outside Glasgow at Blantyre. We have also launched in the South West of England, offering composting collections in Bristol, Worcestershire, and Gloucestershire. Waste from these areas are composted in Gloucestershire.
