Biffa recycles Greggs' waste

Food retailer Greggs is working with waste management firm Biffa in a bid to help reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.

Greggs has more than 1400 shops nationwide and is known for products such as sandwiches, sausage rolls, baked bread and cakes.

It will work with Biffa to trial new recycling schemes such as composting, anaerobic digestion, and other methods of waste disposal.

Greggs group production project manager Peter Boughton said: In line with our values, we wish to operate our business responsibly and protect the environment for future generations to enjoy. Our primary aim is to reduce the amount of waste we send to landfill and therefore recycling is paramount. We believe Biffa can help provide us with the solutions we need to do that.

Biffa collection director Nick Gregg added: Britain needs to stop thinking about waste as something to be thrown away. It can be a valuable resource and much of the material disposed of at landfill could be used to create energy.
