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.

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.
