Bio Collectors have once again been shortlisted for a prestigious award at this years MRW National Recycling Awards in London, thanks to our industry leading, food waste derived CNG conversion project.
The Circular Economy Initiative award recognises an exceptional initiative by an organisation that has embedded the circular economy principles of designing out waste, keeping products and materials in use, and regenerating natural systems. Winning projects will have reduced waste, had a positive environmental and business impact and be an inspiration for others.
The CNG fleet conversion project, begun in 2019, has been an unrivaled success and grown significantly since its initial roll out. Replacing the need for polluting fossil fuels and starting with a single, custom CNG collection vehicle, powered using the biogas produced from recycling food waste, Bio Collectors now has 12 sustainably powered, ULEZ compliant collection vehicles spanning a range of capabilities and sizes, with more due to follow. By collecting and recycling food waste, using the power generated from food waste, Bio Collectors have demonstrated a near perfect circular economy in action whilst simultaneously slashing fossil fuel use and it’s associated pollution from the business.
Providing sustainable, industry leading services and making to most of the food waste we process is at the very heart of Bio Collector’s mission and we are very grateful to the MRW National Recycling Awards for recognising our ongoing efforts to create a truly circular economy for the UK’s food waste.

We would like to take a moment to assure our customers that we are taking all appropriate actions to maintain our services whilst ensuring the health and safety of our staff as well as those they must interact with.
We appreciate your understanding during this difficult period and hope you all remain safe and healthy until the situation is under control.
The Bio Collectors Team
Bio Collectors is pleased to announce a partnership with John Laing Environmental Assets Group Ltd (JLEN). JLEN is an environmental infrastructure fund that invests in and operates a number of renewable energy and waste processing companies in the UK including seven other AD plants.
The announcement represents a significant new chapter in the ongoing growth of Bio Collectors, while further expanding JLEN’s significant portfolio of renewable energy assets. It also marks JLEN’s first acquisition into food waste fuelled anaerobic digestion (AD) – the greenest way of recycling food waste.
Paul Killoughery, Founder & MD, Bio Collectors, retains oversight and running of the business and confirms that from a customers point of view it is business as usual for the food waste collector. “This new partnership will allow our business to truly focus on providing cutting-edge, sustainable services to businesses across London. We will continue to operate our award-winning collections for London’s businesses, helping them to realise the many cost and environmental benefits of segregated food waste services”
Its been a great year for Bio Collector’s. Our new CNG vehicles are out providing sustainable food waste powered collections to our many customers and people are taking notice!
(If you haven’t already heard about our big change, click here.)
We were recently presented with the Blue Patch 2019 Circular Economy award for our ongoing CNG conversion project where we are turning the food waste we collect into a specialised fuel that can power our new collection vehicles. Blue Patch champion SME businesses looking to create more socially aware and environmentally friendly products and services and provide a space for them to be seen by like-minded customers.
We are very grateful for their recognition of the hard work it’s taken to get here and the huge environmental benefits our conversion will bring.
Congratulations to all of this years winners and if you want to read more about Blue Patch’s work you can visit their website here.
As many of you may already be aware, Bio Collectors are in the process of upgrading the fleet to run on clean and sustainable Biogas/CNG power, produced from recycling food waste at our Mitcham facility. (For those of you that don’t, click here)
This move away from fossil fuels represents a huge shift in our operations to an even more sustainable service that is ready to meet the burgeoning needs of the circular economy in London. Fueling our vehicles using the very food waste we collect is a quite literal example of how, with a little hard work, it is possible to create modern, effective services that also take into account our environment and the effect it can have on our roads. All these new vehicles are naturally ULEZ compliant, more than meeting the requirements of the London Mayor’s goal of reducing air pollution around the Capital, especially from HGV traffic.
Making it to the SME Green Award final stages is a recognition of the importance of such changes, not only to businesses but also to London as a whole. We hope to inspire other companies to look at their own operations in the same way, moving towards more sustainable and environmentally friendly methods of working for the benefit of everyone.
Keep your fingers crossed for us in December.
Bio Collector’s oversee every stage of the recycling from pick-up to processing to powering the vehicles, demonstrating a real, working example of the circular economy in action all under one roof.
Creating fuel and resources from food waste is at the heart of Bio Collector’s mission and our ongoing investment in developing anaerobic digestion technology to harness it’s full potential will hopefully prove to be an inspiration for other’s looking to meet the burgeoning needs of a circular economy, head-on.
CNG/Biogas power has the potential to help significantly reduce pollution and unnecessary wastage, not only in London but country wide. As a company, Bio Collectors are proud to help lead the way in providing forward thinking and highly sustainable solutions to London’s food waste problem.
