What's your policy on recycling?

May 22, 2018

You'll have noticed the recycling bins in our restaurants. With your help we can recycle drinks cups and coffee cups as well as plastic items like cutlery. All the remaining waste goes to 'energy from waste' facilities where it is converted to electricity. In our kitchens, we collect up used cardboard and plastics for recycling, and we reuse all the delivery crates and trays we use for our buns and muffins. In addition we convert all our used cooking oil into biodiesel to run our delivery fleet, and we send coffee grounds and food waste for composting.
