Wood Recycling Cardiff
We can provide wood recycling services to your business in Cardiff, helping you to minimise the waste you produce and the associated costs.
We gather all kinds of waste wood including off-cuts, defective timber, pallets, chipboard, floorboards and basically all of the wood which usually ends up in your general waste or a dumpster.
How is it gathered?
Wood collections are likely to be done as one off’s in either a dumpster, RORO container or where accessible, via a wait and load service.
Wood recycling process and use is dependent on the original state of the wood. Solid parts of wood or ‘clean’ wood is chipped and can subsequently be manufactured into MDF or chip board. Manufactured or ‘filthy’ wood is not reusable in this manner, however could be turned into mulch or sawdust for animal bedding or landscaping.
How much does it cost?
In most cases it is sensible to segregate wood from other waste streams as it makes disposal more economical. Generally waste wood is categorised into two standards. “Dirty” significance the wood will be presented with possible pollution for example nails, screws or paint and “Clean” where no such pollution should occur. The later is cheaper to dispose of.
The majority of waste wood is re-usable.
From the waste wood that is processed we produce a wood chip that is sent to UK fibreboard produces and used in the generation of new board. We also use our recycled wood to supply a wood fuel for biomass plants and boilers.
Recycling wood is an environmentally sustainable choice which can minimise costs by preventing rising landfill tax and supplying an environmentally sound solution to handling your waste wood.
