With over 1,000 colleagues in multiple sites nationwide delivering excellent performance, they supply premium cooking oils and collect organic waste, which is then converted into bio-methane, electricity, heat and organic fertiliser. They offer the human touch with local, community-based depots which seek to give back to those communities every chance they get.
