A family business since 1946... now that’s sustainability!
As a third generation family business of over 70 years standing, Warrens have grown from humble beginnings to become one of the region’s foremost providers of agricultural and food waste recycling services.
In recent years, we have forged a place at the forefront of the industry, with the launch of Warrens Emerald Biogas - the region’s first bespoke anaerobic digestion facility, built in 2012.
Anaerobic digestion is a natural biological process, currently allowing us to treat over 115,000 tonnes of food waste and organic materials. Converting it into over 100 million kWh of clean, green energy every year - enough to power 19,000 homes - as well as supplying farmers in the region with thousands of tonnes of premium fertiliser.
And we continue to grow, doubling our treatment capacity in a single year, with the ultimate aim of eliminating the need to send waste food to landfill and creating a cleaner, greener tomorrow.
What we stand for...
We always put our customers first.
Our customers are at the heart of our business. Most companies will tell you this, but true ‘customer first’ companies are few and far between; we are one of them, always going the extra mile to ensure true customer satisfaction.
We do everything we can to provide our customers with a consistent, reliable, positive, and stress free experience.
Whether on the phone or in person, we are easy to deal with and our service is friendly, helpful and efficient, we are always flexible and proactive in our approach. Responsive, considerate and accommodating, we will bend over backwards to be helpful.
We’re all one family.
We see every customer and employee as part of our extended family; all working together to achieve success.
People sit right at the heart of our service, we are committed to promoting teamwork, cooperation and empathy.
We strive to encourage a feeling of belonging and a shared sense of purpose within a supportive company culture.
We are invested in the success of our employees and committed to helping them to reach their potential and feel supported and fulfilled in their position.
We are committed to ensuring all members of the Warrens family feel valued and understand the important part they play in our success.
We’re ethically responsible.
We are dedicated to working in partnership with the public sector and private companies towards the ultimate goal of eliminating food waste in landfill.
We believe that a sustainable business is a better business, and our guiding principles continue to help us to inform and support businesses, organisations and communities around the environmental issues caused by traditional methods of waste disposal.
Nothing is wasted, using biotechnology to treat food waste and organic materials, we create clean energy products such as heat, electricity, transport fuel and biofertiliser in a safe, secure and environmentally friendly way at our purpose built anaerobic digestion facility (the North East’s first).
What truly makes Warrens unique is our common-sense approach and down-to-earth modesty.
We’re straightforward to do business with, and open and transparent in all our dealings with both our employees and customers. This makes for close, honest relationships and promotes trust and loyalty.
We have a practical approach, and are immensely proud of the strong work ethic that runs through our organisation from
the top down.
Being genuine and down-to-earth helps us to build strong relationships between our employees and with our customers that are built on trust and mutual respect.
Our goal is to become the essential partner of choice for all public sector organisations and private companies with food waste disposal challenges.
As one of the most forward-thinking and technologically advanced food waste management businesses in the UK, we were the first in the region to invest in a purpose built anaerobic digestion facility - Emerald Biogas - to treat food waste and organic materials. Reducing landfill and creating clean, green, sustainable energy.
Our forward-thinking is also improving the future for our customers, helping them to achieve compliance, act sustainably, save money and be part of a cleaner, greener tomorrow!
