Disposal of food waste from the gastronomy sector


We dispose of commercial food waste for our customers in the gastronomy sector, with a focus on unpackaged food and leftovers. We provide all services related to food waste disposal, from providing cleaned bins and other containers, logistics services with our bin taxi, to the utilization in our biogas plants. Our customers are typical gastronomy businesses, including hotels, restaurants, pubs, large kitchens, canteens, and cafeterias that do not have access to a regular bio-waste bin from the city or county. We provide our customers with commercial bio-waste bins and other containers. The price for food waste disposal can be obtained easily from our representatives. By the way, we also dispose of liquid and cooked food waste from the gastronomy sector. Are you wondering how the food waste is disposed of?

Our containers - bins, boxes, and containers for food waste and cooking oil


The majority of food waste from our gastronomy customers is collected in MGB 240 and 120 waste bins and is picked up by us according to an ecological travel plan and taken to nearby recycling facilities. These waste bins have a capacity of 120 or 240 liters, depending on their designation. Of course, each gastronomy establishment can also order several of these bins. For cooking oil disposal, we use special containers, namely small grease containers.

Dispose of cooking oil, frying and used fat


We also dispose of used cooking oil, cooking oil, and used grease from gastronomy. In addition to food waste, we also collect used grease containers on the same collection route. However, we do not utilize old frying oil and cooking oil in the biogas plant. Instead, used cooking oil is taken to our disposal plant for cooking oil and ultimately for ecological recycling to biodiesel. This reduces costs and helps the environment. Our focus for grease collection and disposal is not only on frying oil and frying fat, but we also dispose of olive oil, rapeseed oil, and sunflower oil in an ecological and efficient way. Here is the list of cooking oils for our disposal and grease recycling:

  • Cooking oils like sunflower oil, rapeseed oil, and olive oil
  • Frying oil, pomace oil, frying fat, and liquid cooking fat
  • Solid frying fat, used grease, and cooking grease

Disposal of used glass for gastronomy


Along with food waste and cooking oils, a considerable amount of used glass is also generated in gastronomy, such as wine bottles, hollow glass for olive oil, or used glass from spirits. Bioservice Nord GmbH offers the disposal of used glass in parallel with the collection of food waste and cooking oils. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive service to our clients as disposing of used glass can be a time-consuming and often unpopular task for gastronomy staff. For the disposal of used glass, we use MGB 240 liter waste bins.

Disposal of packaged food


It is also possible to dispose of packaged food from gastronomy with us. Whether expired food, damaged goods, incorrect orders or remaining stock before the business is closed for vacation - BioService Nord GmbH also handles packaged food well. The food to be disposed of can be completely utilized with our unpacking system. With packaged food, we can handle all common packaging types such as plastic, film, glass, or cans. The usable organic contents are also taken to our biogas plants after unpacking. The packaging is sorted and recycled according to the packaging type. Simply let us know when signing the contract whether you want to dispose of packaged or unpackaged food, and we will provide you with the appropriate bins.

Organic processing facilities - where do we take the food waste and used grease to?


We have an extensive processing network for food waste. Our numerous proprietary or contractual biogas facilities in Heinfelde and Börger process the food waste delivered to us within the scope of the recycling process. The resulting biogas is either processed and fed directly into the natural gas pipeline or it is converted to electricity and fed into the power grid, depending on the facility. The generated process heat is utilized for heating nearby residential buildings, wood drying, etc., depending on the location. The resulting organic material is spread as fertilizer on contractual farmland as digestate.

Our waste collection trucks en route to gastronomy


With our approximately 40 small trucks, we collect the waste-filled bins from our gastronomy customers. This is done according to an ecological and economical route plan, so that the food waste, used grease, and used glass can be processed as close as possible to the gastronomy. During these tours, the filled bins and containers are immediately replaced with cleaned empty packaging. This powerful transportation network covers the entire northern German region, including Hamburg, Bremen, Hanover, Oldenburg, etc. Our experienced truck drivers often drive the same routes.
