Recycle your waste oil
Help the environment and get your waste oil removed for free!
Our free waste oil recycling scheme is a great way to actively reduce the carbon footprint of your business and ensure you are compliant with all current legislation.
All of the waste that we collect is recycled into environmentally friendly bio-diesel, which is then used to fuel our vehicles delivering goods to our customers. Currently 92% of our fleet is fuelled by a bio-diesel mix thanks to your waste cooking oil. So your waste oil is helping to fuel your deliveries!
We work with a specialist waste-to-energy company, Convert2Green, who collect the waste oil on our behalf and produce a high grade bio-diesel. All of the oil is recycled at their production facility in Cheshire and then mixed with standard diesel.
During the Winter months we use a bio-diesel mix called B30 which reduces our carbon emission on the road by around 25%, and in the Summer months we use a bio-diesel of 50/50 which gives us 45% lower carbon emissions.
The bio diesel mix we use (called B30 – 30% pure bio diesel and 70% standard diesel) reduces our carbon emissions on the road by around 23%, when compared with regular diesel fuel.
Since we started the scheme with your help we have reduced the carbon emissions in our supply chain by over 20,000 tonnes which is a fantastic achievement – thank you!
The scheme has verification to ISO 14064-1 which relates to the management of greenhouse gases encompassing all of our significant operational carbon emissions. This means that we can provide you with a true carbon saving for the amount of waste oil you have recycled, and this saving is within your own supply chain.
We are extremely proud of the scheme and the ISO assurance is testimony to its strength, credibility and unrivalled environmental credentials. Furthermore, we are currently the only foodservice company in Europe to hold this verification.
Join the journey - request your free waste oil collection
Recycling your waste oil with Bidvest 3663 is free. To request a collection, call 0370 3663 645.
After calling for collection, our recycling partner will visit to pick up your waste oil. Ideally we ask that the oil is kept in its original container, as these containers are also recycled. However, if you generate large volumes and require some help with storage, please ask about our free storage barrels that we can loan you.
Convert2Green can also organise a regular collection schedule so you don’t need to keep requesting collections. The minimum volume of oil for collection is 40 litres.
The service offers complete peace of mind with frequent collections, waste transfer notes issued with every collection and all of your waste oil recycled and used in the UK.
We appreciate every drop we can recycle. If you require any more specific information about waste oil recycling, please get in touch.
