How our household waste service is helping the citizens of Southampton and Tunbridge Wells.

Citizens of Tunbridge Wells and Southampton are enjoying a new household waste service offered by Lili Waste that enables them to dispose their domestic waste in a cheap and reliable manner. The last few months the citizens of Tunbridge Wells and Southampton have been confronted with fewer domestic waste collections after the councils decided to move to fortnightly collections.

Following the requests of many citizens who are in need of weekly collections, Lili Waste developed a unique household waste service that’s doing exactly that. Alternating the weeks of the council, Lili waste will collect your household waste fortnightly so you can enjoy weekly collections! It gets even better. Lili Waste offers you a free bin too and for 70p a day you won’t break your bank either.

Ian – Lili’s commercial manager – is very excited about the new service and sees great value for our customers:

We have recently rolled out a fortnightly domestic waste collection to the public in Southampton and Tunbridge Wells to coincide with the council’s decision to move to fortnightly collections.  This service will enable domestic customers to continue with their weekly waste collections by having Lili Waste provide a service on alternate weeks to the council.  I think this is a great service that we are offering and can only see this growing into other areas. I also think that this will help with the probable increase in fly tipping, due to the amount of waste being produced and the reduction in collections.”

Ian has proven to be right in his expectations for a large demand for domestic waste collections. An incredible amount of new customers have signed up for Lili’s domestic waste service and are already enjoying our household waste collections. Most people don’t only like that the collections are cheap and reliable, they also love the fact that all their waste is either extracted or recycled and that Lili Waste always aims or zero landfill, thus saving the environment too.

You may also use our online ordering platform at http://www.liliwaste.co.uk/order-online/, send an email to sales@liliwaste.co.uk or call our sales team at 0800 1777 676

Welcome to the Lili Experience.

Please note: We supply you with a bin and all waste collected is either recycled or extracted! We do not empty the council's bin.

How to reduce your general waste?

Almost all of our clients choose at least one General Waste bin and although we collect many glass, food and recycling bins each week as well. The general waste bin remains the most popular choice among our customers. Everyday thousands of kilos are collected and disposed in the most efficient and cost effective way, always aiming for zero landfill. But how can you reduce your general waste output so you can save a few pounds on your waste bill and help the environment too? In this blog we are going to give you a few useful tips.

  1. Avoid items and products that are individually packed. Instead, try to buy items that come in bulk containers and reuse those containers after they’re empty.
  2. Following the individually packed items you should also try to avoid products that are double packaged. Unfortunately, we see this happening many times. A container or multiple products are packed together and then each separate item is wrapped again. This is very inefficient and creating a lot of unnecessary general waste for your company.
  3. Compost your food and garden waste as much as possible. We discussed this tip in our guide about food waste reduction in restaurants as well. For the full list of our tips to reduce food waste please visit our blog: http://www.liliwaste.co.uk/news/2017/5/26/how-to-reduce-food-waste-in-your-restaurant
  4. Go online: Reduce the amount of mail you receive. Although we life in 2017, we still receive a lot of unnecessary mail. Check if some of this mail can be avoided or maybe moved to online versions?
  5. Buy second hand. Whether it is a table you need for your business or any other type of product, see if you can get it second hand. Buying things second hand will save lots of pounds and it very environment and waste friendly.
  6. Purchase items such as soap, detergents or specific foods in concentrated form. This will not only save you packaging waste, it will save you space too!
  7. Choose for recycling. Nowadays there are environment friendly options for almost any product. Try to choose the recycled version next time you’re ordering something as it truly does make a difference for the environment and total waste output. Especially when it comes to paper or cardboard packages.
  8. Buy in bulk. Whenever, you can afford it and fits your usage, try to go for bulk orders. Bulk orders are normally much more waste friendly then smaller quantities. However, do try to avoid double packaging as much as possible.
  9. Whenever you purchase products, try to choose the products that are returnable, reusable, or refillable instead of single-use products.

We hope these tips will help you reducing your general waste over the coming weeks and months. If you have any questions or comments about how to reduce your waste output you can always reach out to our customer service department.

How Does Recycling Work?

We have all heard about recycling and know that reusing our waste instead of letting it go to landfill will benefit our environment. But how does recycling really work? Since we get this question a lot from our customers we are going to do a post about it. So buckle up and get ready for the beauty of recycling your waste!

Recycling is the process of turning (business)waste materials into new materials that can be used for new purposes. Recycling is important because, not only does it prevent the waste of materials it also reduces the amount of new raw materials being used to create certain products.

The most common sources for recycling are glass, cardboard, paper, metal, textiles, plastic, tyres and electronics. Although it may look different, the composting of food and garden waste is also considered to be recycling as it entails the same process. Turning waste materials into new, useful materials.

In a perfect situation, the recycling of a certain material would lead to a new material of the same type. Eg paper would turn into paper. Unfortunately, this is a very expensive process so normally you will see that the type of material changes after it’s being recycled. Paper turns into paperboard for example.

Recycling is not something we’ve been doing only the last few years. There are already signs of recycling as far back as 400 BC! In moments of resource scarcity, archeologists found that piles of household waste were smaller and containing less ashes and pottery indicating the reuse of certain materials. In pre-industrial times in Europe it was common to re melt bronze and other metals into new products after their initial purpose had been served. In Japan there are signs of paper recycling going back to the year 1013!

The recycling market

Going back to the present day we are still recycling but on a much larger scale. In order to recycle successfully it is important that we have a good functioning recycling market. A good market generally consists of 2 important factors. Supply and demand. To achieve a large and steady supply of recyclable materials (supply) there are generally 3 legislative tools being used by our government.

  • Mandatory collection laws: These laws set aims for cities to reach certain recycling targets. The cities themselves are then responsible for reaching these targets.
  • Container deposit legislation: These incentives offer a refund of a certain amount when the used product is to be returned. For example, a small surcharge is made when buying a plastic bottle at a supermarket which is refunded when you bring it back to specific collection points.
  • Refuse bans: Such as bans to dispose oil, batteries, tires or certain types of garden waste without using a special service.

On the other hand we also need a large demand in order to make recycling viable for all the business involved. The government is basically using 4 tools to encourage this.

  • Minimum recycled content mandates: This will force companies to use a minimum amount of recycled materials in their operations.
  • Utilization rates: This looks similar to ‘minimum recycled content’ but is a bit more flexible. Utilization rates allow companies to reach certain types of recycling targets at any time in their operations. They can even acquire tradable credits to meet the target.
  • Procurement policies: Mostly used by governments, these policies set a minimum amount of recycled products used the in the procurement process.
  • Recycled product labelling: This policy makes sure that recycled products are labeled accordingly and hence consumers (with sufficient buying power) can make educated choices to buy products that are better for the environment.

Recycling of business waste

Although most government programs focus on the recycling of domestic waste, 64% of all waste in the UK comes from business waste. Most business waste recycling programs focus on the cost-efficient side of recycling. Among materials, cardboard (used for packaging etc.) is a commonly recycled business waste product by companies that deal heavily in packaged goods. Think of retail stores, warehouses and distributors of goods.

The glass, lumber, wood pulp and paper manufacturers all deal directly in commonly recycled materials.

The amount of metals that’s being recycled is relatively low, however, the military does recycle some metals. For example, the U.S. Navy's Ship Disposal Program uses old vessels and ship breaking to reclaim the steel. On the other hand, ships may also be sunk to create an artificial reef. Uranium is a very dense metal that has qualities superior to lead and titanium for many military and industrial uses. The uranium left over from processing it into nuclear weapons and fuel for nuclear reactors is called depleted uranium, and it is used by all branches of the U.S. military use for armour-piercing shells and shielding.

Some industries, like the renewable energy industry and solar photovoltaic technology, in particular, are being proactive in setting up recycling policies even before there is considerable volume to their waste streams, anticipating future demand during their rapid growth.

Recycling of plastics is more difficult, as most programs are not able to reach the necessary level of quality. Recycling of PVC often results in downcycling of the material, which means only products of lower quality standard can be made with the recycled material.

Process of recycling

So now we know some basic characteristics of the recycling market and which materials are mostly being recycled it’s good to look a bit further into the practical process of recycling. The process that happens after we have collected your business waste for example.

Recycles are mainly collected in 2 ways before they are being sent by a truck to a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF). They can either be already separated into their respective type of recycling waste such as paper or cardboard or they can be put together into one bin (so called mixed recycling).

After the waste is being tipped at the MRF the mixed recycling will be sorted into various types of materials by either, hand, machine or both. The pre-sorted waste will be added straight away to the corresponding materials at the MRF.

Once collected and sorted the materials will become valuable commodities and are to be turned into new products of any sort!

Your turn

You too can participate in the process of recycling your business waste by ordering a DMR (dry mixed recycling) bin for example and start separating your waste. Operating from Leeds, Sheffield, Hull, Portsmouth, Southampton and Kent our sales team would be delighted to offer you a free quote and any additional information about recycling you may have. Prices already start at £7 per bin so you can’t go wrong on that. Good luck!

How to choose a good waste management service.

Waste management is one of those things that every business owner has to deal with. It’s certainly not something that most business owners enjoy thinking about but nonetheless having a good waste management service is of vital importance to all businesses. Just imagine how your business will look like if you have waste laying everywhere due to it not being collected or that you’re paying tens to hundreds of pounds to much every month. Soon, a good waste management company will become very important to you.

Ok, but what is good waste management company able to do? First of all, a good waste management company will save you money by charging a fair rate for your waste, will have reliable collections tailored to your needs and will have an outstanding customer service in case you have any questions or specific requests. Sounds great, but where do I need to look at when choosing a waste management company? No worries! In this post we will offer you a few handy tools in assessing which service is the best for you.

  1. Check several quotes: Although this may seem obvious, many times people don’t bother to look around. Try a few different suppliers and you will be amazed by the difference among a few of them.
  2. Avoid brokers: Sometimes it can be difficult to see if you are dealing with a direct service provider or with a broker but it can make a tremendous difference to deal with a direct service provider instead of a broker. The waste management industry is full of brokers and they all charge 15-20% commission for their services which you will be paying for in the end. It’s worth the effort to check if your preferred business waste company is a broker or a direct service provider as it will save you hundreds maybe even thousands of pounds over the duration of your contract. Adding to that you will never know who will be handling your waste when you’re dealing with a broker and hence it will be impossible to know if your actual waste handler is reliable or has a good customer service.
  3. Check for reviews: What do other people say about the business you’re intending to use and do these reviews seem legitimate? It can be worthwhile and very insightful to check these. Also, does the business has a Google listing? Are there any reviews on there?
  4. Check all the details of your contract: What’s the duration of your contract? How much will you be paying for additional waste? Are there any strange clauses? Again, these things can differ tremendously among suppliers and are very worthwhile investigating. Especially when you’re about to start an annual or multiyear contract.
  5. Does the waste management company fit you: Every company has specific business waste needs in terms of bin size, frequency of collections and types of waste collected. Is the company able to handle your requirements against low costs? Also, how does the communication feel with them? This is normally a good indicator to check how they will handle any future questions or queries. Are they helpful, fast and do they sound reliable?

As you can see these are a few helpful tools which you can use in assessing your perfect waste management company. We encourage people to do a bit of research as it can truly make a big difference and will make sure you can enjoy a good business waste collection service while you are focusing on your business. Good luck!

How Lili Waste became UK’s Cheapest Waste Management Service.

When it comes to low rates for waste management services we are proud to take that spot and offer the lowest in the market. Lili Waste Service is officially UK’s cheapest waste management service with rates as low as £ 7 per bin!

With these low rates, you do not only get a free bin. You will also enjoy the most reliable waste collections and customer service as well! We call it the Lili Experience and when Lili Waste Services was founded 3 years ago it where exactly these characteristics that formed the base of our company.

How it all started.

Lili Waste Services noticed there was a gap in the market for a new and efficient business waste service that is able to offer the lowest rates while maintaining the highest standards of customer service and reliability. Lili Waste literally wanted to make waste management better and before Lili started, these traits where mutually exclusive. Businesses could enjoy a low rate but often missed a good customer service experience and reliability or viceversa. Most business have been around for a long time and therefore have inefficient business practices and mostly rely on their long term client base. The market was stuck and inefficient with brokers everywhere and that needed a change.

Lili Waste Services took a different approach and started a new direct service company in Leeds, Sheffield and Hull. By operating our own bins, trucks and depots we are able to cut out the broker and streamline our service to reach maximum efficiency. Brokers typically charge a 20% fee for their services and by cutting that out Lili Waste Services already generated value for its customers.

Where else would you pay rates as low as £ 7 per bin? Do you get your bin the next day if your order before 4PM or receive a free collection if we miss one pick-up*? Only at Lili Waste Services!

Innovative Waste Management like never before.

The introduction of Lili Waste Services and the Lili Experience hasn’t gone unnoticed. In the last few years Lili Waste has been growing strong and recently expanded to Southampton, Portsmouth and Kent as well. We are proud that our growing customer base and success of the last years is a sign of our value and we are dedicated to keep improving waste management far into the future.

How glass can reduce your general waste output.

When you have business waste we know what to do with it. No company will handle your waste cheaper and with a better customer service than we do but it would be best off course to reduce the amount of waste you produce. Not only will it help saving the environment, it will save you some hard-earned pounds too! A few weeks ago, we already did a blog about Food Waste (http://www.liliwaste.co.uk/news/2017/5/26/how-to-reduce-food-waste-in-your-restaurant), today we want to discuss the special case of glass. Glass cannot only reduce your general waste it also has special characteristics. Sounds interesting huh?! It is, so let’s go!

Glass will keep your foods fresh for much longer – When you need a product to store food or leftovers there is only one true winner. Glass. According to many studies, glass is the best choice when you want to maintain the quality of your food. Glass has an almost zero rate of chemical interactions, ensuring that the products inside a glass bottle keep their strength, aroma, and flavor. Wow!

You can reuse glass in many different ways – When you bought a product or food or anything else that came in a glass bottle or jar there are almost endless possibilities on how to reuse that jar after you used it. In no way you need to throw it away.

For example, you can use them in your garden as:

  • Flower pots
  • Receptables for growing plants
  • Birdfeeders
  • Citronella lanterns

Need more inspiration to reuse your glass jars? Check out these links:

http://www.greenusesforwaste.co.uk/novel-re-use-glass-bottles-jars.html

https://www.pinterest.com/ecodivastv/50-ways-to-reuse-bottles-jars/

We can recycle glass until eternity – Glass is 100% recyclable without loss in quality or purity. That’s because glass is made of natural products such as sand, soda ash and limestone. Because glass is made of natural products the amount of glass that’s being recycled exactly equates the mount of natural resources saved. So 1 ton of recycled glass has saved 1 ton of natural resources, isn’t that great! When glass is being recycled around 80% ends up in new jars, bottles and fiberglass. The remaining 20% is used for many different things such as:

  • Countertops and flooring
  • Tile and other decorative items
  • Abrasives
  • Concrete pavements and parking lots
  • Brick manufacture
  • Reflective paint for highways

Did you know:

  • That a glass jar or container can go from a recycling bin to a store shelf in less than 30 days!
  • That around 80% of all waste produced by bars is glass waste.
  • Recycling over 1000 tons of glass creates around 8 jobs.
  • Glass bottles have been reduced in weight by approximately 40% in the last 30 years.

We recently did a blog about our improved glass waste service in Hull (http://www.liliwaste.co.uk/news/2017/6/16/glass-waste-collections-in-hull). However, if you want your glass waste to be handled with the best care and for the lowest rates in Leeds, Sheffield, Southampton, Portsmouth or Kent don't forget to ask your FREE quote.  Welcome to the Lili Experience!

6 reasons to choose Lili Waste for your Business Waste.

When it comes to choosing your business waste disposal service there’re many factors that play a role. Nowadays it looks like business waste companies are everywhere and that may make it difficult for businesses to choose the right service. However, don’t worry as we have made a small list on how Lili Waste distinct’ itself from the crowd and why choosing Lili Waste as your Business Waste Disposal Service is a very good idea. You see, things already get a lot easier!

1.       Direct service provider – We are a direct service provider. That means when you sign a business waste disposal contract with us, we will be the one collecting your waste as well. We own our own business waste depots in Leeds, Sheffield, Hull, Southampton, Portsmouth and Kent and operate our own trucks and bins as well. Nowadays there are many brokers in the market which is causing a lack of transparency, increased rates due to hidden broker fees and virtually no customer care. Lili Waste was designed from the beginning to be a direct service provider and to offer a trustworthy, reliable and transparent service to the market. Lili Waste is really making Waste Management better and we proudly call it the Lili Experience.

2.       Lowest rates – Because we are a direct service provider, operating our own trucks and depots we are truly able to offer the lowest rates. There is no ‘middle-man’ when doing business with us and thus we charge a fee that is fair for the services we offer and lower than our competitors due to the lack of hidden broker fees and a very efficient supply chain. However, don’t trust us on our word. See it for yourself and request a free quote at sales@liliwaste.co.uk. No strings attached. You can compare our quote with that of other suppliers and will be amazed by the difference. Welcome to the Lili Experience!

3.       Exceptional Customer Care – We believe that offering the lowest rates and best customer care are not mutually exclusive. This goes back again to our core business model of being a direct service provider. We have full control over the whole business waste supply chain and hence can offer an exceptional customer care experience. Every day we do thousands of collections and have a 99%+ success rate. In those few circumstances in which something unexpectedly didn’t go as planned we always have our Customer Service team standby to handle any question, comment or complaint and they are not satisfied until you are satisfied. With our recent expansion to Southampton, Portsmouth and Kent we acquired a new Customer Service manager as well to keep our service level as high as possible. You may read more about that in this blog: http://www.liliwaste.co.uk/news/2017/6/5/say-hi-to-our-new-customer-service-manager. Kim Cox is – next to Jade Kennedy – an absolute star when it comes to handling Customer Service queries and we’re very happy to have her onboard.

4.       Receive your bin the next day – That’s right. When you sign your business waste contract with us before 1600 you will receive your free bin the next day! We know your time is valuable and we also know that waste doesn’t wait. As of this we will make sure you will have your bin as soon as possible the next day so you can see what the Lili Experience is truly about.

5.       Get one month of FREE collections if we miss one pick up – We know that reliability is one of the most important factors for businesses when it comes to business waste collections. Nobody wants to have full containers in the back of their business causing unpleasant smells and attracting rats and other animals.

Lili is making waste management better and with better we mean that we offer the lowest rates while achieving the highest standards of customer service. Every day we do thousands of waste collections and yet we manage to maintain the highest customer satisfaction possible. Although we always try to aim for zero failure we do have a handful of occasions in which something went not as planned. When that happens we’ll have sleepless nights, but meanwhile it’s good to know that the best service managers in the market are working at Lili Waste and always ready to solve any question or complaint faster than our drivers can tip a bin. We know that an excellent customer service is an integral part of our business success and therefore we keep investing in hiring the best customer service talent the market has to offer. We already have Jade Kennedy – our so called magic worker – who can turn any event into a pleasant experience but now – with our recent expansion – we also have Kim Cox. Say Hi to Kim: Hi Kim!

Kim Cox

Kim Cox

With our recent expansion to Southampton, Portsmouth and Kent, we acknowledged that it’s important to hire a second customer service manager to be able to offer the personal service our clients are used from us. After a thorough search we finally found Kim Cox behind a beautiful 1100 litre Lili Bin. We immediately knew that Kim would fit our team but after a few interviews about her background we also knew we found the best in terms of skills and that she would be a valuable addition to our team. Kim has over 12 years of experience handling all sorts of customer service queries in the waste management business and decided to continue that at the Lili headquarters. Her enthusiasm and commitment towards the Lili customers is amazing. After a 2 months training in the North she relocated from Brighton to Tonbridge to work at our new office and be able to truly offer the best customer service for our customers in Southampton, Portsmouth and Kent.

We are very excited to have Kim on board our team and already experienced first hand how she turns regular customers into smiling customers. Kim, welcome on board.

If you wish to enjoy the Lili Experience as well and have the lowest rates for your business waste while experiencing the highest customer service possible then please send an email to sales@liliwaste.co.uk and receive your free quote. No strings attached of course.

Lili Waste. Making Waste Management Better.

Lili Waste introduces domestic waste collection for Southampton and Tunbridge Wells.

Lili waste is continuing to make waste management better and is now addressing the domestic market too! We are very excited to announce that we successfully created a domestic waste collection service that enables households in the Southampton and Tunbridge Wells area to have their waste collected and recycled, the Lili way! The innovation followed the local council’s decision to move to fortnightly collections.

Ian, the sales manager of Lili Waste is excited too and very keen in sharing the Lili experience with domestic clients.

“We have recently rolled out a fortnightly domestic waste collection to the public in Southampton and Tunbridge Wells to coincide with the council’s decision to move to fortnightly collections.  This service will enable domestic customers to continue with their weekly waste collections by having Lili Waste provide a service on alternate weeks to the council.  I think this is a great service that we are offering and can only see this growing into other areas. I also think that this will help with the probable increase in fly tipping, due to the amount of waste being produced and the reduction in collections.”

After a careful process of designing this new service, Lili successfully delivered it's first bins to new customers in the Tunbridge wells area. The new customers -now part of the Lili experience-  where smiling when they received their free bin, knowing that all their waste would be recycled and their domestic waste concerns belong to the past.

Before offering this service, it was very important to be able to offer the same high level of customer service that we give to business waste clients as well. Lili acknowledges that domestic waste customers have different needs in terms of bin size, types of waste and collection times and therefore made sure these distinctive traits are being addressed in the most efficient and satisfactory way.

Starting at just 70p a day, the new domestic waste service is gaining interest from the local community quickly. If you’re interested too, please do not hesitate to give our local sales team a call at 0800 1777 676 or send an email to sales@liliwaste.co.uk and receive your free quote. Your free quote comes without any obligations. No strings attached. Please note, our new domestic waste service will provide you with a free Lili Bin. We will not empty the council’s bin

For now we would like to thank all our new domestic waste clients for joining the Lili experience and hope to welcome you as well.

How to reduce food waste in your restaurant

In a world where food scarcity is around at many places and environmental problems are challenging our society we have a moral and ethical duty to reduce our food waste. A typical figure you often hear when it comes to food waste in restaurants is 10%. Although a little bit of food waste will always be inevitable there are good ways to reduce your waste significantly and position yourself amongst the restaurants with little to zero waste. It will not only make you and your guests happy, it will save you money too! So, how can you cut back on your food waste? In this blog I will give you 10 easy tips that will enable you to cut back waste and utilize your food resources more efficiently.

1.       Rethink your portion size

A lot of waste simply happens when your guests don’t finish their plates. When this frequently happens, you may want to start monitoring the events. For example, if this happens to specific dishes, people and or days. Subsequently you may want to reconsider your portion size to avoid this food waste in the future.

2.       Get creative with leftovers

Food left overs can happen on many occasions. During the preparation of the meal or after serving it to the guests. Left overs that originate in the kitchen may be re used for other dishes. Get creative! Maybe those egg whites are perfect for a cocktail? Or maybe you can make a great staff meal out of it?

Left overs that arise from the guests may be a delicious treat to animals. You see, there can be a use for anything!

3.       Know what you really need

A lot of future food waste occurs when ordering at the specific vendors as Chefs frequently order to much. A good way to avoid this is by monitoring your traffic to get a better sense about how much food you really need. Also, don’t be afraid to run out of various ingredients. A lot of Chefs have the feeling that guest satisfaction may drop significantly when certain plates are not available anymore. However, guests will understand that fresh ingredients are not unlimited available and when you can offer them a delicious alternative no harm will be done. They will know for sure it’s fresh!

4.       Inspect your food orders

Following our tip about knowing what you need when ordering food at vendors it’s also very important to strictly check your orders when they arrive at your restaurant. Frequently vendors will make mistakes or deliver samples that are of no use to you. Be firm and return anything that won’t be of good use to you.

5.       Improve your knife skills and limit batch cooking

Make sure your staff is thoroughly trained in how to chop, cut and prepare the food to maximize the yield of every single piece. A lot of food waste simply occurs because of poor cutting or use of ingredients.

Adding to this, you may also want to consider limiting the amount of batch cooking. We know it may be very useful to prepare batches to realise quick response times but when batches are not completely used they usually end up in waste. A creative way to use left-over batches may be to offer them as Staff Meals!

6.       Label your food

It may sound like common sense and is even legally obliged in some cases but it’s a very good practice to label all your food when it arrives at your restaurant. This will enable you to use the food with the shortest shelf-life first and wait with others.

7.       Maximize shelf life

Adding to our previous point this may seem like common sense too. However, far too often this goes wrong and may result in unnecessary food waste. Make sure your food is being stored under the right conditions and at the right temperature. This will maximize your shelf life and allow you to limit your waste.

8.       Donate excess food

When confronted with excess food that can’t be used for guests anymore you may consider donating it to charities or other organisations. Almost all the time the food is still very good to use!

9.       Consider composting

If left overs can’t be used for other dishes, staff meals or for animals as discussed earlier you may want to consider composting it.

10.      Encourage guest to take leftovers home.

Taking excess food home is becoming more and more popular these days, especially when you encourage your guests to do so. Many guests will be delighted to accept your offer when you say that you’re more than happy to put their left overs in a box for them to take home. No food waste, happy guests and you just saved money on waste. What a way to go!

Volvo FE is miles better for Lili Waste

Lili Waste Services’ founder and Chairman, Matt Miles, is passionate about creating a greener future. Therefore, when it came to selecting vehicles for the collection of trade and commercial waste in Sheffield, Hull and Leeds, he had little hesitation in turning to Volvo dealer Crossroads Truck & Bus, Birstall and the Volvo FE.

"I have dealt with Crossroads Truck & Bus in the past and they have always proved themselves to deliver what I've needed and then they've backed that up with excellent service thereafter," says Matt. "As such, when Lili waste was incorporated just last year and we needed safe, reliable, highly-manoeuvrable vehicles boasting excellent fuel efficiency and environmental values similar to our own, it was a fairly logical step to look to Volvo and Crossroads Truck & Bus."

The initial Volvo FE 6x2 rigid truck with steered tag axle specified by the company is now on the road, working double-shifts, six days per week. A second truck of the same specification is due to be delivered in January 2016 and Matt is already looking further ahead and to the Volvo Tridem configuration, which he believes could perfectly suit the expanded aims of Lili Waste.

Powered by a Volvo D8K engine producing 280hp and up to 1,050Nm of torque the Volvo FE features a day cab and air suspension on the rear and is fitted with an Allison 6-speed automatic transmission as requested by the body builder, Incomol.

The Incomol body has a 23m3 capacity, which takes the Volvo FE right up to its 26-tonne GVW when fully loaded. "Over a double shift the Volvo FE is collecting trade and commercial waste from some 250 wheeled containers from 240-litre capacity up to what we call skips with a 12.2m3 capacity," says Matt. "This equates to approximately 20 tonnes/day, not one ounce of which goes to landfill," he reiterates.

"Trucks for us really are just a means to an end," adds Matt. "Our business is about trade and commercial waste, about finding solutions for our customers that require zero landfill and through offering great service and value for money. All that said; I appreciate that to achieve this we need vehicles and the Volvo FE with the Incomol pusher 4000 body is proving to be a capable enabler in achieving our goals."

"The truck will only cover about 100,000km/year, but every one of these will be highly demanding and intense with a work cycle of stop-start-idle repeated hundreds of times every day," says Matt.

"With a 5-year Volvo Gold R&M contract and the inherent reliability found with Volvo trucks I am confident in the Volvo FE. I am certainly very happy with the truck that's been delivered and the service from Crossroads Truck & Bus Birstall has been seamless," he concludes.

Lili Waste's drivers are full of praise for the new acquisition too, telling Matt that the Volvo FE is very comfortable, the all-round visibility is great and the manoeuvrability is ‘spot on'

Lili launches fortnightly domestic collections in Southampton

Hampshire waste management specialist Lili Waste is adding another tier to its business by launching domestic collections. Following the announcement that from June Southampton residents will only have their bins collected every fortnight, Lili Waste is introducing household collections for the city.

Lili Waste is already a leader in commercial waste collection for businesses with depots in Yorkshire and Kent. It launched in Hampshire last February by opening a £1 million depot in Eastleigh.

Lili Waste owner Matt Miles said the launch of domestic collections was in response to growing demand, particularly in Southampton.

Miles said: “I’m delighted to announce the launch of our domestic collections service in Southampton. We have had a great response and healthy order stream in already.

“We have become an industry leader in trade waste and have a strong reputation for being greener and smarter.

“Because there is such a need in cities such as Southampton and Portsmouth, we are diversifying our business to include household waste collections.

“There is no doubt that people struggle to cope with fortnightly collections and we are offering them a cost-effective and hassle-free collection service that may make their lives that little bit easier.”

Lili Waste is offering to supply a 240-litre bin for £260 per annum – or £5 a week. The service is not just for refuse but can also include recycling.

Papped! Bin wagon spotting could be the next new craze!

Lili Waste welcomed its newest member of our fleet last week, offering Business waste services and an hour after we picked her up, she was already on social media! Our facebook page pinged as a member of the public spotted the newly named “beast” servicing some of the waste containers we have at Bramley Shopping Centre for waste management and recycling there .

Train spotting? More like commercial waste truck spotting! Keep your eyes peeled for our vehicles and give our drivers a wave! Give us some bin truck love ...
