Take the pledge!

We can all do our bit to help the environment and here at Allerton Waste Recovery Park we encourage everyone to think about reducing, reusing and recycling their waste.

By reducing, reusing and recycling we can cut the impact of our carbon footprint.

Why don't you make a pledge to stop using carrier bags, plastic straws or single use plastics. 

You can make your pledge on our special site here - we'll be adding up how much COwe could save over a year by making small changes!
