We transferred all our Yorkshire sites over to Yorwaste after I meet Liz in Harrogate. So far I have been more than impressed with the services the speed of action taken when I request a change or some documents. I know this was going to be a good choice coming to Yorwaste , but I did not think it would be this good. The flexibility you have offered during Covid-19 is much appreciated, our tenants need all the help they can get to make sure we all have business to return to and continue. So thank you for your continued support during these troubled times, and it’s great to have Liz back as our account manager, she have been super from first contact to the day each service started .

About Harrogate and Waste Statistics

As North Yorkshire’s leading waste management company, we’re proud to provide outstanding waste management and waste recycling services to retail outlets, restaurants, pubs and offices in Harrogate. Passionate about waste management services that prioritise the safety and well-being of people and the planet, we have been certified to the internationally recognised Environmental and Quality standards ISO14001, ISO 45001 & 9001 for many years.

There are over 9000 businesses in Harrogate, which hire more than 72,000 people across the region, all of which combine to create tonnes and tonnes of business waste each year. Thankfully, the people of Harrogate have shown over the years that they are more than willing to pull their weight when it comes to managing their waste efficiently, and statistics released by the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs show that the Harrogate district frequently outperforms other parts of the country.

Back in 2013/2014, 40.3% of all household waste was sent to reuse, recycling or compost, nearly 7 percentage points higher than the English minimum, but unfortunately quite far beneath the maximum of 49.3% which other regions in England have managed to achieve. Flash forward to the most recent statistics and Harrogate has managed to improve this number by .5% to 40.80% bringing it that bit closer to the national average of 42.89%.

Whilst this might not seem like much of an improvement, it’s worth noting that there were years in between where these numbers dipped drastically (to as low as 38.9%) and they remain much higher on average than regions such as London and the North East.

Since the release of the most recent statistics, some changes to the way Harrogate’s household waste disposal is managed has taken place. Refuse collection has been switched to alternate week collection (the same frequency as recycling collection) and residents now have 240 litre wheeled bins to collect their waste, as opposed to solely relying on black sacks. They can also make the most of free garden waste collection for 9 months of the year (which 43,000 green-fingered residents have chosen to do!).
