1 2 3… 4 awards for our composting support!

Vegware’s waste engagement is shortlisted for the Footprint Awards! That’s a 4th award for our innovative compostables recycling partnership with Paper Round.

We’ve been helping Vegware clients close the loop since 2012, learning, evolving and developing our client support all the time. Trade waste collections taking used Vegware for commercial composting are now available to our clients in 56 of the UK’s largest cities, covering over 70% of the UK’s urban population.

We partner with lots of waste collectors around the UK to compost used Vegware, as well as running our own service Close the Loop in Central Belt Scotland (our home turf). Our in-house Waste Management Consultants pride themselves on client engagement, helping minimise contamination with successful behaviour change.

In London, Brighton and Sussex we partner with Paper Round. This partnership has now been recognised with four different awards, judged by industry experts in foodservice, sustainability, waste and facilities management.

Paper Round and Vegware collaborate on engagement-led waste collections, helping clients minimise contamination with successful behaviour change.

In 2021, Paper Round and Vegware co-invested in a new unique sorting line for compostables at the Paper Round recycling facility. Helped by WRAP funding, this belt-and-braces solution helps maintain quality to ensure catering waste can create compost for British agriculture. This innovative project scales up sustainable waste management for London & Brighton caterers relying on disposables for hygiene and distancing.

You can learn more about this project by watching our recent London Bright & Sussex webinar.
