Ever wondered what's the best way to dispose of coffee grounds?

It might still come as a surprise for many, but in fact you can recycle coffee grounds! Exciting, huh?

The UK consumes around 70 million cups of coffee a day, generating hundreds of thousands of tonnes of waste coffee grounds each year. Unfortunately, most of these used grounds end up in landfills, where they release greenhouse gases - including methane, which is 28 times more dangerous than carbon dioxide.

The solution?

We have been recycling coffee grounds from businesses since 2015, in partnership with bio-bean. They were the first company to recycle coffee grounds on an industrial scale, converting the waste into biofuels and biochemicals. The recycled coffee grounds are turned into logs for wood burners.

Recycling coffee grounds this way saves 80% CO2 emissions than if they were sent to landfill, and 70% than if they were sent to anaerobic digestion facility mixed with food waste.

But it also saves businesses money, since recycling coffee grounds is cheaper for your company than coffee grounds disposal with general waste.

Use the First Mile coffee recycling service to save money and power the country with green energy by ensuring your company's coffee waste is recycled!

The heat output of Coffee Logs is 20% greater than that of kiln dried wood and the burn rate 18% slower, which makes it a longer-lasting fuel.
