Claremont Farm is a family run farm in the Wirral – located nearby to B&M Waste Services’ head offices.
Along with his mother, father and brother, Andrew Pimbley is one of the Directors at Claremont Farm with his family running the farm and growing fruit and vegetables on the land since 1906. In recent years, the family has expanded their farm shop, opened a bustling cafe serving home-grown and local produce, and now also offer an on-site events space.
Sustainability has always been key for Claremont Farm and reducing their use of single-use plastics has become more prevalent in recent years. With the introduction of their farm cafe and events space, Claremont Farm were also conscious that their food and glass waste was increasing significantly. Andrew and his family were looking for a waste management solution that put recycling first. As a fellow local business, also family-run, with Carbon Neutral status since 2011, B&M waste were the perfect fit for Claremont Farm.
B&M provided in-depth waste audits and site visits to ensure they put forward a solution that was tailored to the requirements of Claremont Farm. Food, cardboard and glass waste were separated to ensure the highest level of non-contaminated recycling, with food waste going through the process of anearobic digestion and consequently used to generate energy. Glass and cardboard is separately collected, recycled and made into brand new products.
General waste is also collected by B&M Waste and processed as Refuse Derived Fuel, again generating energy and ensuring none of Claremont Farm’s waste goes to landfill.
