Chris, our Restaurant Manager with David Hubble, Sales Manager from Willshees’s

We are proud to work with our local supplier Willshee’s, who provide a zero waste to landfill service. We are always looking at new ways to be greener and continue to reduce our impact on the environment.

Food waste creates a dis-proportionate amount of Greenhouse Gases that are released into the atmosphere as it degrades. Following the launch of a new vehicle & service Willshee’s now ensure that our food waste and glass are fully recycled. Any food waste we produce is taken directly to an Anaerobic Digestion (AD) Plant in our local region.

Once the collected food waste is delivered to a local AD plant it goes through the full Anaerobic Digestion process, which turns the food waste into compost. The gases of the waste drive a generator which in-turn produces electricity, with all the electricity produced provided to the National Grid as green energy.

Willshee’s new collection vehicle has been designed with two separate compartments to allow them to collect food and glass waste at the same time, which further reduces the amount of carbon emissions released into the atmosphere.

The mixed glass they collect is stored at their Burton-on-Trent depot until they reach 26 tonne, at which point the glass is delivered into a glass recycling facility in our region. After the glass is cleaned and sorted by colour, it is melted and moulded in to new products. The glass is then recycled as new products which will be reused.

Glass doesn’t degrade through the recycling process, so it can be recycled an infinite number of times without any loss of purity. Recycled glass can be made into usable products in as little as 30 days.

Here at Planters, we are always looking at new ways to be greener and continue to reduce our impact on the environment and reduce our carbon footprint.

Proud to be local…

Here at Planters, we love using local suppliers. See where we get some of our products from below.
