Leeds renew green waste contract for Yorwaste

Yorwaste, the North Yorkshire based recycling and waste management company, has been re-appointed to manage the recycling and composting of green waste from Leeds. The two year contract will involve approximately 2,000 tonnes of green waste being brought to the companys recycling centre at Harewood Whin, near York, every year. The green waste will then be converted into high-quality compost for use in land restoration and sale to the public. Managing more than one million tonnes of household and composting waste each year, it provides a range of services from engineered landfill and recycling to liquid waste treatment and waste-fuelled power generation. Yorwaste recycling and external affairs manager John Miller said: We have been handling green waste from the city for the past two years and regard the renewal of our contract as a major vote of confidence. We have been working with Leeds Council since 1998 and they have chosen to go with us because they know that we are reliable.
