We treat waste from all households across York and North Yorkshire that was previously sent to landfill. Now it is used to generate enough energy to power over 40,000 homes.
Diverting waste away from landfill, means we can use it as a resource to generate energy. Each year we manage up to 320,000 tonnes of waste - that's enough to fill more than 2,100 Olympic sized swimming pools.
Find out how we do this by watching our video here or take a look at our Waste Education Experience page and book a tour. We welcome visits from residents, community groups and schools.
