Councils asked to turn food to fuel by North East recycling company

Warrens Group is lobbying local authorities in the North East to support the region in becoming leaders of household food recycling, It was reported by the North East Times Magazine.

The landmark Environmental Bill is set to mandate household food recycling by 2023. Warrens Group is working to ensure that North East councils are at the forefront of implementing the service and making strides towards the UK’s 2050 net zero goal.

By starting conversations with environment directors from all 12 North East councils, Warrens are advising on how the service can be established, to make sure the region is prepared when the changes come into action in 2023.

Kevin Quigley, commercial director at Warrens Group, has written to councils asking them to prepare the North East for this change.

Kevin believes that food waste recycling is one of the easiest ways to combat the climate crisis. He said: “I’m in full support of the Environmental Bill. Once all households are recycling their food, they’ll see how much their spending can be reduced, having a huge impact on their finances and carbon footprint.

“What we are trying to achieve by working with local authorities in the North East as early as possible, is making sure that they are ready for the change and have an efficient and effective food waste collection service in place.”

Warrens currently provides food waste collection services for businesses and schools across the region. Warrens is transitioning towards biomethane fuelling and hope to have the entire fleet converted by 2023 when all transport formats have been launched and available in the HGV fleet transport market.
