No. We prefer to talk about wasted resources so we will help you if you have or want a wide range of things including, equipment, production capacity, storage and transport, skills, waste heat, sludge; anything that does not leave your business as a product or service can be classified as a wasted resource and we will aim to find a solution for it.
Wood, in most circumstances, can be recycled although heavily treated wood such as telegraph poles and some fencing cannot. There are four grades of wood waste and we will help you determine which grade yours falls into and how it can best be recycled.
From 1 April 2016, businesses producing more than 50kg per week of food waste must present it separately for recycling. There are ways of recovering this waste, for example through composting or anaerobic digestion (AD). We will help find the best solution for your business.
