About us

Would you like to know a little bit about us?

We are SJB Recycling, one of the UK’s largest providers of green waste composting services.

Jointly owned by North Yorkshire County Council and City of York Council, we carry out much of our day-to-day recycling in South and West Yorkshire, but we also oversee and offer technical support to our sister company Yorwaste on its operations in North Yorkshire.

In addition, we are the sole supplier of compost from all SJB and Yorwaste sites.

SJB Recycling and Yorwaste provide green waste composting services to many local authorities and as a result we operate across seven sites located in Barnsley, Bradford, Catterick, Dewsbury, Northampton, Rotherham, Scarborough and York

SJB Recycling and Yorwaste use facilities that meet the appropriate regulations for undertaking open-windrow composting. Furthermore, our composting sites operate to the highest environmental standards achieving ISO 14001 and 9001 certification.

We process green waste, where possible, to produce compost to the PAS100: Compost Quality Protocol Standard.

We call this compost Yorganics. This 100% recycled and peat-free compost can be bought in bulk or from local stockists.

While not all green waste meets the PAS100 standard, it is still made into a high quality soil conditioner. This is in line with the Environmental Permitting Regulations and associated close Environment Agency scrutiny.
