Family-owned Keenan Recycling is headquartered in New Deer in Aberdeenshire, launched its commercial food waste collection service in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire in 2010 and now processes more than 60,000 tonnes of waste each year in its own 14-acre facility IVC facility in New Deer (Aberdeenshire), transforming it into British Standards Institute accredited compost.

Since we started in 2001 the business has grown from a garden waste composting business based near Aberdeen to a national organics waste management company. We received a £2.2m investment from the Business Growth Fund in 2015 and have expanded operations across Central Scotland and opened offices in Linlithgow, near Edinburgh and acquired an eight-acre site in Linwood, near Glasgow. Since this expansion, we have become the largest food and garden waste recycling business in Scotland with English operations opening this year.
