At Greencore Wisbech we have been using Local Generation for over 7 years for the disposal of our food and effluent waste and I can’t fault the excellent service we receive. Even on the odd occasion when things don’t go to plan Local Generation are always at the end of the phone willing to go the extra mile to help, I couldn’t ask for anymore; a fab team to work with.
SHE Manager - Convenience Foods Producer
The food waste pilot is proving to have been a great success. The scheme has achieved most of its original objectives. This will benefit the LWP, giving it greater confidence, based on real evidence that food waste collections in Lincolnshire would be accepted by the public and will deliver the overall levels of benefits identified.
Lincolnshire County Council
We were delighted by our recent service experience with your team, the guy in the stores looked after us really well and explained how to access the site through your weighbridge to reach the control panel. We know what to expect next time and we will be in touch again soon to do it all over again – thanks again!
Phil, MD, Local Food Manufacturer
The system BioteCH4 installed at the customer site not only reduced the amount of vehicle movements on the customer site, it increased route efficiency and we were able to reduce the near misses from one per week using the bulk tipper trailers to none using the new tanker system.
Managing Director
The site has worked with Local Generation for a number of years now for the disposal of all our food waste, and have been exceptionally pleased with the service and support we receive. We have found them to always be competitive in terms of pricing, and their ability and willingness to respond quickly to unplanned situations has proven invaluable.
Product Manager
We requested a collection of a unit we’d had on-site for a week and a little later that day we required another one collecting at late notice. Your driver arrived ahead of the scheduled time, was polite, helpful and friendly; he was the same driver, who last week had shown me how to set up the unit. Your service is prompt, reliable and communication is easy with you all – highly recommended.
Angela – QA Goods in

They are always flexible and efficient providing us with a high level of customer service and the appropriate audit trail for our customers.
Peter Jackson - Commercial Director
The disposal trial went very smoothly and with subsequent loads collected quickly and efficiently , Ben has been an easy associate to conduct business with. Finding a green route for disposal that is efficient and cost effective is always a challenge and we are very pleased that this is now possible
