A flexible, reliable and efficient solution for your waste wood

Wherever you’re based in the UK, if you have waste wood to dispose of, we can take it to be transformed into panel board or to be used as biomass for power and heat.

We’re committed to handling waste wood not just legally, but in the most ethical and environmentally responsible way possible. For example, we prioritise recycling wherever possible and make an effort to minimise the carbon footprint of collections and deliveries.
