Allerton Waste Recovery Park brings together state-of-the-art technologies to make the most of rubbish from homes in York and North Yorkshire.
It's been open since March 2018 and is operated by Amey on behalf of North Yorkshire County Council and the City of York Council.
The new facility is reducing the amount of household waste going to landfill in the county by 90%. Diverting this waste away from landfill means we can use it to generate enough energy to power the equivalent of 40,000 homes. You can find out more about how we do this on our technology pages, by watching our video here, or by taking a look at our process diagram here.
