High Hopes for a Better Year!

We all know that 2020 was a year we’d probably like to forget, but with the New Year now upon us it’s time to start to think about how things will look for our customers and our contacts.


We’ve spent months planning, tweaking and adjusting our contingency plans to ensure the safe working environment of our staff and visitors to each of the sites across our group.

We’ve been very lucky that the levels of food waste we receive across our 6 sites wasn’t hugely affected last year, we’ve taken some significant steps to ensure our people are safe and that our processes are Covid-19 compliant. We have also received a huge amount of support from our customers and staff in the roll out and safe upkeep of these procedures.

We have and will continue to accept food waste across all our sites; we’ve also been lucky enough to add to our staff to help support our ever-changing requirements of our customers and the industries we work in as well as bolstering our fleet of vehicles to enable additional collections of cooking oil and fats waste from across the country.

These new hires and the improvements we’ve made to our business put us in a stronger position than we’ve ever been in before and we’re confident that the months ahead will be a huge move forward for us as a business and for every member of our teams.

We’re also confident that our customers are all starting the year with the same positive mindset; things can only get better and we’re on hand to support where needed. Our team will be on hand for any support you may need with new enquiries and your account manager is your first port of call for existing customers. If you have any questions about your current food waste collections, please get in touch with your account manager or drop us an email.

Continuing our support for local foodbanks

We’re delighted to be supporting local foodbanks across the UK from each of our 6 sites again this year. We feel it’s important to support a charity close to our hearts and one which has and continues to help so many people across the UK who have been affected the hardship, job loss and other financial implications of the current difficult economic conditions.

We’re incredibly grateful to our teams who have given generously during the last few months to our foodbank collections and for an initiative run by the NSPCC at Christmas for children in need.

Moving forward

As we start to focus on the months ahead, we’ll be supporting the continued efforts of WRAP and other organisations championing the work our customers do to reduce and recycle the amount of food waste they have within their business.

Working towards a sustainable future should be on the agenda for every business this year and part of that should be reviewing your waste management processes. A flexible waste management plan will offer your business the capability to handle any fluctuating waste requirements the year ahead may throw your way. It also has many financial, operational and environmental benefits.

When you work with BioteCH4, we’ll take the stress out of waste management, whether that be a food waste collection service or the removal of oil-based waste. We will deal with all your recycling needs from either one of several of our plants across the UK, we like to think of ourselves as a one stop shop for the recycling of a huge variety of food waste and our experienced team will make working with us easy.

In March, we’ll be supporting Food Waste Action Week, an initiative run by WRAP, which will run from Monday 1 to Sunday 7 March 2021. We’ll be supporting this by encouraging local schools, businesses and organisations to consider the food waste they and their businesses produce. Watch out for more on this nearer the time.

To find out more about our services or how we can help support the development of your waste management plan for 2021, please get in touch.

Here’s to a happier and healthier year for us all!

I first wrote an update in May last year, talking of ‘some challenging weeks ahead’, little did we know that I’d be writing nearly a year later about the same situation. Albeit this time with renewed hope with some light at the end of the tunnel.

The growing, production, processing and transportation of food are all contributing factors to our climate emergency. With rising C02 levels, the impact food waste rotting in landfill has on this should be something we all act on.

In the last 18 months, many councils and local authorities have declared a climate emergency. When surveyed by the LGA in February 2020, nearly 8/10 councils questioned had experienced an increase in effects of climate emergency, such as flooding in the last five years.
