Business Recycling Statistics in York
York is a city that really has a handle on its waste. North East authorities have been driving to improve recycling and reduce unnecessary waste over the last decade, and the City of York Council is one of the 33 percent of North East councils that have managed to increase their total amount of recycling as a result!
Domestic recycling rates have been steadily rising since 2017, with recent figures showing that 44.9% of all household waste is sent for recycling instead of landfill or waste to energy, that’s a good increase on the previous figures of 42.5%.
As you might guess, as recycling rates have increased, the percentage of waste that is dumped in landfill or waste to energy has dropped. This figure has decreased from 59.6% to just above 33% in recent years. Indeed, York no longer sends any waste directly to landfill, rather it is now used to generate energy from waste.
Despite these improvements, York still has a way to go if it wants to really compete with other councils; the City of York Council currently ranks 144th for the percentage of waste recycled in the country, not bad considering there are 353 authorities on the list!
Thankfully, there are a couple of local projects that have been established with the express purpose of reducing both commercial and domestic waste and improving the environment for everyone in York.
The Allerton Waste Recovery Park became operational in 2018 and processes up to 320,000 tonnes of waste every year from York and North Yorkshire. Mechanical treatment, anaerobic digestion and energy from waste processes are all used to massively reduce landfill usage from waste generated by York businesses.
