Top Food Waste Disposal related questions

Food waste involves a wide range of products and commodities. These can consist of leftover or uneaten food from restaurants, packaged food waste from bakeries, and items from shops and supermarkets that aren't sold and already out-of-date. Food waste can also include solid and liquid by-products from the manufacturing process or agriculture such as fish discards, post-harvest crops, and other waste due to spillage during handling and storage.
Sure! Some people have less food waste than others, particularly if you live by yourself or have a small family. Our Taskers can help you dispose of your food waste–whether it's something as small as mouldy bread, some bones from last night's Sunday roast, or a tin of leftover food that's been forgotten and lying at the back of your fridge.
How long it takes to complete a food waste disposal service all depends on the volume of your food waste. If your waste fills up just one small waste bin, the entire process can be done within an hour or so. However, if you need several bulky containers or even a tanker to collect and take out your items, you may need to allow for a half day's work.
Sure! If you have other plans and can't personally attend to the work, that's no problem. We don't require you to be physically present when we conduct the service. Just allow your Tasker access to your property, leave them specific instructions if any, and they'll take care of the rest. However, if you want to stick around during the service to monitor the progress, you may do that as well.
No, you don't necessarily have to provide waste bins for your food waste disposal service. Once you hire a Tasker, they'll arrive at your location with the right supplies to properly collect your food waste. However, if you already have waste binds ready, you may use them for your service as well. Remember that your waste bins should be made of durable material with proper seals, can be easily cleaned, and are colour-coded for appropriate identification to comply with local regulations.
Definitely! What's great about Airtasker is we're not just limited to one type of service. After getting your food waste disposed of and recycled, why not hire professional cleaners to deep clean your property while you're at it? They can take away any rough stains on your tables and chairs, scrub your floors, and even do an entire commercial kitchen cleaning job so you can be ready to get back to the grind of operating your restaurant or food business.

What do food waste disposal services include?

We make it easy for you to hire food waste disposal pros who can do the job for you. You won't have to worry about what to do with your leftover food, bakery waste, and other unsaleable or out-of-date items. Our Taskers can take care of everything–from collecting and segregating your waste to getting them disposed of or recycled in the quickest, safest, and most environmentally-friendly way. For a better idea of what our food disposal services entail, here are more details:

Food waste collection and pick-up

Your Tasker first arrives at your doorstep, ready to pick up your food waste for you. From raw or cooked meat, fish, and vegetables to bread, pasta, and dairy products like cheese and eggs, they'll sort through each item and segregate them according to proper waste management standards. Whether you need a small wheeled bin for your leftover food collection or need larger containers or even a tanker or compactor to collect all your commercial food waste, we'll help you out.

Our waste collection service is done safely to avoid pests, cross-contamination, and other unpleasant problems that can arise. Aside from food waste, if you have any branches, grass clippings, or hedge trimmings lying around in your property, you can also ask a Tasker to collect your green waste for you. In this way, you can have peace of mind knowing all your biodegradable waste is safely removed from your space and disposed of in the best manner.

Food waste disposal and recycling

Once all food waste has been hauled away, your Tasker takes care of its disposal and recycling to ensure they are put to the best possible use. Instead of your items ending up in a landfill, they're taken to a local anaerobic digestion facility where they are processed and converted into green energy that is usually exported to the National Grid. Anaerobic digestion refers to the process where microorganisms and bacteria are used to break down food waste, and any gas emitted is collected for future electricity or heat production.

With anaerobic digestion, food waste is controlled and recycled into a renewable energy source. Whether you've got leftover food from your restaurant, packaged food waste from your bakery, or any expired items from your shop, we'll help you dispose of and recycle them responsibly with minimal fuss to your daily routine.
