Mid UK Recycling have established organic waste treatment processes that combine proven and cost effective aerobic and anaerobic technologies. Mid UK Recycling are totally committed to treating, recovering and recycling organic waste to eliminate waste to landfill and to manufacture a range of quality assured products including compost, soil improvers, renewable electricity and fuel products.

Organic waste is treated using the oldest waste process known to us all - "composting". Composting is nature's way of recycling.

We at Mid UK Recycling use the very latest machinery in an aerobic composting method, biodegrading organic waste, for example: food waste, manure, leaves, grass trimmings, crop residue, etc. and turns it into an organic fertiliser.

Mid UK Recycling provides this Aerobic treatment to commercial & industrial customers as well various local authorities, kerbside and civic amenities sites.

The Composting Process Aerobic treatment more commonly known as composting can be defined as:

'Composting is the biological decomposition and stabilisation of organic substrate under conditions that are predominantly aerobic and that allow the development of thermophilic temperatures as a result of biologically produced heat.'

UK wide service area

Our collection fleet of over 60 vehicles, provides a full range of waste containers, including all skip sizes, roro's, tippers and walking floors.

The compost is manufactured to the national compost standard PAS 100 and the Compost Quality Protocol.

Science of Composting

Most organic materials can be represented as a mixture of three basic groups of chemicals:

  • Lipids and carbohydrates.
  • Proteins and amino acids.
  • Ash, lignin and cellulose.

In the presence of oxygen and water a wide range of bacteria, actinomycetes and fungi act upon the above chemicals and so drive the composting process.
