At our plant in Lochhead near Dunfermline, we accept green waste from local authorities and businesses for composting and we also process food and garden waste using our state of the art anaerobic digestion facilities.

Green waste composting

If your business needs to recycle green garden waste, we’re here to help. We use an open windrow system to compost materials to PAS 100 standards and we sell our finished product as a soil enhancer with a principal grade of 0-20mm.

We offer competitive prices – and what you pay depends on how much waste you’d like us to recycle.

Processing food and garden waste

We make use of co-mingled garden and food waste to produce electricity that we export to the national grid. We can also accept catering waste and category 3 animal by-products (former foodstuffs), although you’ll need to remove all packaging if you’re sending these types of waste to us.

The dry anaerobic digestion plant at our Lochhead facility converts waste into electricity and heat and is among the first of its kind within the UK. It can accept up to 40,000 tonnes of material each year – that’s the equivalent of 230 Boeing 747 aeroplanes.

Calum Sinclair, Owner
C. Sinclair Fresh Fish Merchants

“We are a small family run fish merchants business and have been supplying the local community and restaurants for nearly 8 years now. With our recent expansion to the High Street in Kirkcaldy we run 2 retail shop and a fleet of vans delivering Scotland wide.

We have been using Cireco (Scotland) for several years in our original premises and now use the service for both shops. What we liked about the service is the straight-forward pricing, which is not reflected in a lot of the competitors out there, and the regular availability of pick-ups in our area. Also, as a busy High Street fishmonger we sometimes get overwhelmed some weeks and the ability to just phone up and book an extra uplift is vital to us, and it’s an easy service to book. Customer service is excellent, so communication is great if you ever have any issues.

We would thoroughly recommend Cireco (Scotland) to any small businesses looking for the best service to meet their commercial waste requirements.”
