We share five brands your care home can partner with to effectively manage expenses.

Keenan Recycling

Providers of a nationwide commercial food waste collection service – Keenan Recycling collect food waste from businesses, brokers and local authorities. Some of the businesses include restaurants, hotels, care homes, hospitals, prisons and cafes. The food waste collected is then transformed into electricity, heat and fuel. The brand supports the circular economy in the process that their food waste undergoes, which helps to drive greater resource productivity. Keenan Recycling are developing a Net Zero Transition Plan with a clear aim of creating a sustainable zero-carbon food waste collection business by 2030. keenanrecycling.co.uk

Fletcher Oils

Fletcher Oils are a UK based independent broker of used and fresh cooking oils. Having built up a comprehensive knowledge of the Used Cooking Oil marketplace over the past fifteen years, Fletcher Oils is able to invite offers from all interested buyers achieving the highest available rebate for your oil. The way it works is that a care home will save their used oil and organise it to be collected by Fletcher Oils. Upon collection, your home will receive a fee and the oil is taken to be recycled into fuel. fletcheroils.co.uk
