What is catering waste?

Catering waste is the waste produced in restaurants, canteens and catering facilities. Most of the waste is food waste and can include items with animal by-products, such as cooked or processed fish and meat, baked goods containing meat, dairy or fish.

Broken utensils, liquids, packing and other rubbish produced from catering activities are also catering waste.

Some common types of catering waste include:

  • Food waste – preparation waste, spoilt food and leftovers from customers
  • Plastic – bottles and plastic packaging for ingredients and oils
  • Glass recycling – glass jars and bottles for storing ingredients
  • Cardboard – cardboard packaging and boxes
  • Textile waste – gloves, hats, aprons and other soiled fabrics
  • Utensils and knives – broken and damaged kitchen equipment

Who produces catering waste?

Any business that produces food for customers provides a form of catering. This means any waste produced while making food, whether as simple as putting together a few sandwiches, is catering waste.

Any organisation or building with catering facilities online will need catering waste management, from campsites to shopping centres.

Common businesses that produce catering waste include:

  • Hotels
  • Restaurants
  • Bars, clubs and pubs
  • Kitchens

Catering waste bins

Waste Removal Hammersmith provides a wide range of outdoor and indoor catering bins, containers, and bags for separating and collecting waste. We can provide free bins, and you only pay for collection.

We have different solutions, from specific food waste bins to containers for storing and compacting cardboard and other recycling.

We can provide you with tailor-made solutions if you produce large amounts of catering waste. There are laws preventing waste from getting dumped in sewers or lateral drains. Our professionals know the waste legislation for catering waste and will ensure your business adheres to these regulations.

Catering food waste disposal

All employers are legally obligated to manage and dispose of the waste produced by their businesses. In most cases, catering waste ends up in one bin because of the lack of facilities and a large amount of waste produced.

Several laws apply for catering food waste disposal because raw eggs, fish and meats can’t be disposed of in landfills. This makes it important for catering businesses to understand the legislation for waste disposal.

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs or DEFRA classifies three main categories of animal by-products (ABPs) based on their risk levels. However, two apply to catering waste.

  • Category 3 ABPs cover most catering waste and are considered low-risk. They include shells from shellfish, eggs and domestic catering waste
  • International catering waste (ICW) – this is anything from international transport vehicles and category 1 of ABP, which are high risk

Reducing catering waste

An easy catering waste solution is reducing the among of waste you produce. Since lots of the waste is food waste, you can take various steps to try and reduce the amount of waste during food preparation.

A few ways to reduce your catering waste include:

  • Storing ingredients properly in freezers and fridges at the right temperatures to prevent foodstuff from getting spoilt quickly
  • Keeping an updated stock inventory to prevent overbuying food items when you still have a large backlog
  • Rotating the items in the storage products regularly to prevent the products stored at the back from expiring, unknown to you
  • Finding ways to use the leftover foods during food preparation
  • Checking deliveries against orders to ensure you have the right amount of items and correct products

Frequently asked questions

International catering waste (ICW) is food waste from international transport vehicles. The waste is produced overseas, on international wasters or during transport. For example, international catering waste could be from catering activities on armed forces vehicles, a cruise ship, a private yacht, or an aeroplane originating from another territory or country.

Domestic catering waste is waste generated from catering activities in the UK. You can use international foodstuff, but if it is cooked, prepared and served in the UK, it is domestic catering waste.

The waste may be from catering services on trains in the UK or domestic flights in the UK. Domestic catering waste falls under category 3 ABP, which is low risk. The waste can be disposed of with other waste types and food waste.

Countertop bins are usually for disposing of food waste while preparing food in commercial kitchens, which can be emptied in larger food waste bins.
