Bio Collectors and Bywaters: A Powerful Partnership for sustainable food waste management at Wimbledon championships
I have been using Bio Collectors for my customers now for over two years and the service has been fantastic…my customers like the fact they can put all sorts of food and coffee into one bin, that makes it very simple to train their staff… I recommend Bio Collectors to all my customers who have food waste to dispose of.
Wimbledon Championships has always been committed to environmental sustainability. In recent years, the organisers recognised the need to improve their waste management practices, particularly in handling food waste. They sought a solution that would divert food waste from landfill and reduce their carbon footprint.
The primary aim of the Bio collectors and Bywaters partnership at Wimbledon was to implement a comprehensive and sustainable food waste management system. By combining their expertise and resources, these two organisations strive to minimise the environmental impact of the championships by diverting food waste from landfill and transforming it into valuable resources and contributing to the circular economy.
Bio Collectors and Bywaters collaborated closely to design and implement an effective food waste management system. The key steps included:
During the Championships, Bio collectors processed 134 tonnes of food waste, producing 102 tonnes of fertiliser an providing enough gas to power 13 homes per year and electricity to potentially power 18 homes.
The collaboration between Bio collectors, Bywaters, and Wimbledon Championships exemplifies the successful implementation of a sustainable food waste management system. By diverting food waste from landfill, generating renewable energy, and producing nutrient-rich fertiliser, the partnership has significantly reduced the environmental impact of the Wimbledon Championships.
This case study serves as an inspiration for other large-scale events and organisations to adopt similar sustainable waste management practices.
