As a specialist waste management company, VeriGreen offers commercial food waste collection in Derby and the surrounding area including Burton-Upon-Trent, Donington, Tamworth and Chesterfield.  Our fleet of food waste collection vehicles can collect waste in a clean, safe and efficient way.


We can handle both naked and packaged food waste. Naked (i.e. unpackaged) food waste goes directly to our anaerobic digestion (AD) plant where it is used to create green energy and nutrient rich biofertiliser. Packaged food waste is sorted before making its way to the same AD plant. Any packaging is recycled by our sister company to ensure that as little as possible is sent to landfill.


VeriGreen can collect food waste from restaurants and pubs, schools and hospitals, ports and airports, farms, food factories, caterers, supermarkets, football clubs and other premises in the Derby area. By recycling your food waste, you can reduce your organisation’s carbon footprint. You could also potentially reduce your food waste collection costs by up to 30% (compared to the cost of sending waste to landfill).
