UK household food waste is responsible for 14m tonnes of CO2.

North East to become leader in household food recycling

Food waste recycling company, Warrens Group, is lobbying local authorities in the North East to support the region in becoming leaders of household food recycling.

The 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, 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.”

Currently the UK household food waste is responsible for 14m tonnes of CO2 - as much greenhouse gas produced as flying from London to Perth more than 4.5m times.
