Allerton Waste Recovery Park

Incinerator Site, Moor Lane, off A168
By arrangement with Amey, who manage the site for North Yorkshire County Council, we booked a group tour of this impressive facility for Civic Society members and guests. A group of 15 members had a fascinating tour which provided an insight into the scale of the operation at a time when we need to be increasingly conscious of the impact on the environment of what we consume and what we dispose of. The visit took around two hours and involved an informative talk on recycling in the visitor centre plus a site tour - a walk of about 1km in total for the return trip.
