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
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
Wholesale & Distribution Manager
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.
