Recycle your Food Waste On-site with Ridan
On-site recycling for catering food waste is now a practical, viable, completely environmentally friendly solution for catering outlets. Hundreds of schools, hotels, cafes and restaurants across the UK and beyond are already reaping the benefits of recycling their food waste onsite. By installing a Ridan onsite, not only will you reduce your carbon footprint and lower your waste disposal costs, you’ll also be producing fresh, healthy compost for the garden.
What can your catering business compost?
- Dairy, cheese, butter, eggs.
- Fruit and Veg (including skins)
- Meat & Fish (raw and cooked)
- Pasta, Rice
- Oils and fats
- Plate scrapings, anything edible.
All raw and cooked food waste can be composted in a Ridan. Fruit, veg, greens and prep compost most easily, however starches, meats and dough take longer to digest, much like our own digestive systems, so a mixture of both types of foods is essential.
Dead leaves, straw, paper, cardboard and tissue can be composted by layering them into the Maturation Box, between the compost as it is loaded, this works better than adding them to the Ridan. For more information go to: How the Ridan Composter works
