ALLERTON WASTE RECOVERY CENTRE

April 18 @ 9:15 am - 10:45 am

£10

Come and see what happens to your black bin bags!

Allerton Waste Recovery Park, operated by Amey, has been open since March 2018 and processes up to 320,000 tonnes of waste per year from York and North Yorkshire households.  It turns our waste into resources by using state-of-the-art technologies:  a mechanical treatment plant for separating out material for recycling; an anaerobic digestion plant producing a biogas which generates electricity; and an energy-from-waste plant burning the remaining waste and producing more electricity.

This is a working site visit:  please wear sensible clothing with stout footwear and no exposed arms or legs.   The tour is about 1 km long and involves 30 metal steps.

Meet in the car park at Allerton Waste Recovery Park, off the A168 between junctions 47 and 48 of the A1(M),  Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, HG5 0SD.  If you need transport, please contact the Civic Trust office.
