Our operations

Here at Allerton Waste Recovery Park we treat the household waste that was previously being sent to landfill.

We do this for all households across North Yorkshire and the City of York. By diverting waste away from landfill, we are able to use it as a resource to generate energy. Each year we handle 320,000 tonnes of waste per year - that's enough to fill more than 2,100 Olympic sized swimming pools. You can out more about how we do this by watching our video.

If you would like to find out more about what happens to your household waste and the technologies we use to get the most out of it, why not take a look at our Community and Education page and book a free visit. We welcome visits from community groups as well as schools and youth groups.
