Our new composting collection in Scotland 

Vegware’s compostable packaging is designed to be recycled together with food waste. Now we’re making recycling simple, launching our own collection service.

Close the Loop is a waste collection service for Vegware customers throughout Scotland’s Central Belt, ensuring their compostable packaging and food waste is collected for composting.

Our new service will provide a simple zero waste solution for Scotland’s foodservice industry. With collections in the Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee and Falkirk areas, all collected Vegware and food waste will be composted outside Glasgow at Blantyre. Catering waste will help feed Scottish fields; with high-grade compost created in just a matter of weeks.

The service is flexible for customers: there are no contract tie-ins, users can choose their own collection days and they can cancel or add collections with just 24 hours’ notice. We also provide a clean bin with every collection. To make Close the Loop even more of a success we’re also offering expert support in the form of free staff training and bin signage.

At Vegware, we take our producer responsibility seriously. Close the Loop is just one of the innovative ways we go beyond packaging.
