Yes, many of our customers find this to be a convenient option. Please ensure there is access to the building on the day of delivery.

Is the packaging recyclable?
Yes. It is.
Your meals are packaged in PET1 plastic trays, the lowest carbon footprint packaging for food, which are suitable for both the oven and microwave and are made from recycled material and are 100% fully recyclable. The sleeve is also 100% recyclable.
If you have received a cooler bag, it and the gel packs within, are reusable.
We will happily take back the bags full of empty, clean trays for recycling.
For our DPD deliveries, the outer box is made of polystyrene (EPS) and is again, fully recyclable but not all recycling facilities will take it.
See our blog post on the measure we take to ensure sustainability at all times.
