What We Do Not Recycle


In compliance with new Environment Agency regulations, we are unable to accept and dispose of certain wood waste materials from buildings constructed before 2007, as they are now automatically classified as hazardous materials. To identify which items are prohibited, please see our visual guide below for a clear understanding of the changes.

We can provide Roll on/Roll off containers for
larger bulk collections of wood.

The Process and Final Destination

Once collected the wood is brought back to our MRF (Materials Recycling Facility) where each load is quality assessed and weighed on our on-site weighbridge.

Once this is completed the wood is tipped into bays for sorting where our 360° crane reduces the material to a more manageable size. The wood is then separated into 2 grades which are virgin/uncontaminated unpainted wood and painted low grade wood.

All waste is then shredded to particle
size of sub 35mm. This enables us to get
more weight on each vehicle thus
reducing vehicle movements and carbon footprint.

The wood chip is then loaded by loading
shovel onto a waiting articulated lorry.
The vehicle will hold 28 tons of wood
chip and we aim to maximite weight on
each truck to reduce vehicle movements
and carbon footprint.

When the wood reaches the mill it is re-processed, de-dusted and then graded by size. It is then ready to have any waste/contamination removed before being turned into new wood products such as animal bedding, landscaping mulch and children’s play areas. Low grade wood are sent to biomass energy recovery facilities.
