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. 

By making a pledge via our online system you can help us increase the CO2 saved across York and North Yorkshire each year!

You can pledge to either:

  • Stop buying single-use plastic bottled water and carry a refillable bottle
  • Switch to using reusable mugs instead of single-use coffee cups
  • Increase your recycling by 10%
  • Replace your single use carrier bags with reusable bags
  • Stop using plastic straws

You can make your Pledge For The Future on our special site here - the site also shows how much CO2 we will jointly be saving over a year by making our pledges!
