Over 110 years of managing the land.

The origins of our company date back to 1900, when F D Todd started the business in Thirsk as a haulage contractor and road builder.


Following the sale of our family-run business, Todd Waste Management, in 2017, we founded Allium Energy with a clear mission in mind – to propel the energy and organic recycling sector forward.


Allium Energy is owned and managed by the fourth generation of the Todd family. While the activities of the business have evolved over the generations, the focus has always been on land, environment and energy. We believe that where there’s muck, there’s brass.

1900 - 1940 

Quarrying, road building and general transport.

1940 - 1970
