Are you in the catering business? A cafe, restaurant, guest house or hotel. Or maybe something larger scale like a hospital, prison, holiday park or theme park?
Catering food waste recycling on site is now a practical, viable solution. Reduce mess, reduce smells and reduce costs in an environmentally friendly way that benefits you, your clients and the environment.
The Ridan Composting system has already been installed in places such as cafes, restaurants, schools, residential homes and motorway service stations. Each enjoying their own benefits. Some have reduced disposal costs. Some enjoy the clean and hygienic way the food waste is disposed of, but most are happy that they are reducing their carbon footprint and adding to their green credentials.
The Ridan Composting system requires no power so can be located anywhere (with a flat surface). This could be anywhere on your grounds, housed inside a shed or garage, or some have even put them on flat roofs!
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
