GAP Organics

Management and Collection of Food and Organic Waste Streams.

Food Waste Recycling

As part of our ongoing services. GAP are able to provide a collection and processing service for your food waste via Anaerobic Digestion facilities where energy trapped within the food waste is liberated to produce green energy.

If your business or commercial organisation produces food or you generate food waste in any form, we can help save you money, decrease your landfill charges and reduce your carbon footprint. Simply by recycling a single tonne of food waste, we can help avoid emissions of up to 1 tonne of carbon dioxide equivalent.

Our team of experts work tirelessly to meet your individual needs to ensure we get the job done right, first time.

Circular Economy

GAP Organics, working with localised food waste (anaerobic digestion) facilities throughout the country, enables GAP to provide and deliver a bespoke solution to help you achieve a zero-waste outcome.

The food waste delivered to the AD plants on arrival is mechanically separated from any packaging it arrives in; that packaging is then sent to our partners Waste to Energy sites. 

This makes the food waste AD plants, the perfect example of zero waste businesses and puts GAP Organics at the forefront of the Circular Economy. 


Having been separated from its packaging , all of the organic material is pumped and blended with other organic waste including wash waters from other local food producers, which would otherwise go to the sewer.

This blended material is then fed to the plants Digesters, where microorganisms break down the biodegradable material and convert it to Methane and Carbon Dioxide (Biogas). It is a similar process to that which takes place in the stomach of a cow.

Biogas is either used directly as fuel in Combined Heat and Power engines (CHP) to produce renewable heat and electricity or upgraded to the National Grid Standard, as a renewable Gas, both energy streams are exported to the National Grid, for use by domestic and industrial customers.

The remaining liquid known as Digestate, is a nutrient rich fertiliser and at plants GAP Organics supply, meets the PAS110 quality standard, meaning it is no longer considered as a waste, but a high quality Bio-fertiliser.

Commercial Food Waste

We partner with North East based commercial businesses in the food production sector irrespective of size. We also offer these services in the South West and South East of England.

The service delivered is fully traceable from the collection point through to processing through our Biogas Plants and we are fully compliant with all waste and recycling laws. We will provide you with Waste Transfer Notes for every collection and summarise these into monthly reports available through our customer portal.

Our collections start at wheelie bins and go right through to 20yd/40yd Roro skips and anything in between. Collection receptacles are determined based on choice, collection frequency and available space at your site.


Retail Food Waste

Our clients range from independent bars, restaurants, and cafes through to the large well-known brands on most High Streets or Town centers.

These conscientious clients target that all their food waste should be used to generate renewable energy and not go to less environmentally friendly disposal routes such as landfill or incineration.

We’ll happily introduce you to other clients to hear what they have to say about the services being delivered and how we’ve drastically reduced their waste management overhead.


Trade Effluents

Using vacuum tankers, we offer trade effluent and DAF sludge collections from farms, dairies, and food manufacturing facilities.

All wastes are first analyzed at independent labs to ensure they are screened for any contamination and to confirm their suitability for use in our Biogas Plants.

As our tankers are all fitted with specialist cleaning equipment, so we can offer additional services whilst on site such as drain and sump jetting/cleaning.


Secure Destruction

Years of working closely with some of the best-known brands over the years have given us a thorough understanding of the need to protect those brand identities and reputations. Our secure and CCTV monitored destruction services can deliver the precise level of destruction your business demands. A very reliable service for the destruction of poorly dated stocks, product recalls and stock which has become damaged during transportation or warehousing.

Keeping your business compliant

Assisting your teams in keeping your business compliant, sustainable always looking for ways to help you save on your Waste Management overhead

Businesses today must strive to be sustainable in every area to survive and prosper. Helping you understand the latest technologies available to assist you in reducing your volumes of waste is key to our relationship with you. This is why GAP Organics have signed up to WRAP’s Food Waste Reduction Roadmap and we will share industry best practice with you whenever we see an opportunity to reduce your waste volumes and improve your recycling rates.

When GAP Organics take responsibility for your food and other waste streams, we guarantee that our field to fork approach will benefit your business, reduce your disposal costs and make your waste part of the Anaerobic Digestion (AD) circular economy. You produce the waste, if it cannot be redistributed, we collect and process through AD converting the organic material to green gas which is exported into Northern Gas Networks for use by local homes and businesses. If your food waste was packaged, we first of all completely shred it, dry it, then send it on for further local green energy production, at a local Energy from Waste (EfW) plant. The Digestate (The liquid material which remains after all energy has been converted) is a Quality Biofertiliser which will be spread locally on agricultural land, encouraging the next cycle of growth and closing the circular economy loop.

All of this delivered at Wardley Biogas Plant, the first and only Food Waste AD Plant in the Tyne & Wear region.
