Here at Yorwaste we take our responsibility to the environment seriously.
It’s not just about ensuring we recycle and recover as much of the material we collect as possible.
It’s also about ensuring we keep our carbon footprint low too. This is why we invest continually in the latest, state-of-the-art vehicles and fleet which produce low emissions.
And it’s also why we have facilities across North Yorkshire and the City of York. This means the distance between collecting and processing waste is kept to a minimum.
Our landfill sites are specially engineered with the environment in mind. We are also able to utilise the methane gas to produce green electricity that goes back into the National Grid.
And through our environment body, Yorventure, we provide grants worth hundreds of thousands of pound each to local community and environmental projects.
We do so much more, of course. We are blessed to operate in an area like North Yorkshire and the City of York. This is just one of the reasons why protecting the environment is very important to us.
We also produce an annual report which outlines the work we are doing to minimise our carbon footprint and protect the environment, as well as how we support the community and strive for the highest health and safety standards. You can view the report by clicking on the front cover of the report below.
