Construction and demolition sites, including gardens, can be filled with different types of waste, but wood waste usually accounts for most of the waste. Research shows that most wood waste from sites goes to general rubbish with other wastes, as it requires resources and time to effectively manage and dispose of the wood.
Disposing wood with general rubbish is an effective waste management strategy, and this option isn’t environmentally friendly.

Our wood waste disposal and recycling services allow us to remove all wood waste without disrupting your activities. We can also tailor our waste management services to meet your business needs and deliver an efficient service.
There are four types of wood waste – scrap wood, problem wood, natural wood and used wood waste. Problem wood wastesconsistof unwanted laminated timber, wood waste with preservative agents, and a combination of regular wood with problem wood waste.
Used wood waste includes wooden parts of deserted buildings, wood waste from wooden furniture and materials such as colour pallets.
Natural wood waste includes wood pieces from logging activities and sawdust.
Scrap wood wastes include wood from carpenter’s workshops, furniture factories, sawmills and construction sites.
Wood waste disposal requires the right sizes and types of bins, balers, skips or storage containers. You can contact us to get the right buns for your wood waste. When you fill the ins with wood waste, we will collect them at the agreed time.
Ensure your wood waste doesn’t have contaminants because pieces of metal can damage the machine at the recycling centre. However, breaking down or separating wood waste isn’t necessary.
After your wood waste collection, we will take it to the nearby wood recycling facility, where professionals will sort and process it.
Bins for waste collection are pile-up stations in different shapes, materials and sizes to help reduce spreading litter. Different waste collecting bins are available – waste yard dumpsters, centralised bin stations, waste transfer carts and localised containers.
The localised container is also known as a desk-side bin. It is an individual refuse bin that increases efficiency in handling waste correctly. For instance, you can place the localised container at a close point for throwing personal trash like paper. This bin encourages people to organise their bins, which promotes wood waste recycling.
Centralised bins, also called high-traffic containers, are strategically placed and store waste from localised containers. Furniture workshops usually have centralised bins in their corridors and hallways to store wood waste from their personal employees’ workstations.
The waste transfer cart or utility cart is primarily for storing waste from centralised stations. This bin option is big and carries more waste. It is more economical than getting several high-traffic containers.
Refuse yard dumpsters are the last bin points for storing large waste amounts. This bin is usually big, and tonnes of wood waste is from the transfer balers.
The government has established regulations and laws to control the wood waste disposal process. For example, the UK Waste Legislation and Environmental Protection Act mandates all companies to document the waste they procedure to ensure its proper disposal.
The Hazardous Waste Directive prevents mixing hazardous and other waste. The Duty of Care legislation stipulates everyone involved in producing, importing, keeping, treating and disposing of regulated waste pay the Duty Care levy.
The UK government also mandates that every movement of hazardous wood waste should have a waste transfer note. This note contains legal documents and signatures of the parties sending and receiving the wood waste.
After wood waste collection, we can recycle it. For readily recyclable wood waste, processing is easier. Some people use wood waste to make wood chips, the small wood debris for creating bed gardens or landscape covers.
Companies can compose wood waste and use it as raw material for biomass fuel. Wood waste can serve as raw material for fencing wood, demolition tools and plywoods.
Wood waste is among the most produced waste in the UK. Although the UK only has 1% of the world’s population, it uses 3% of the world’s wood. In the past, most companies and individuals dumped wood waste in landfills, even though wood waste is an organic, recyclable product.
However, more companies have started properly disposing of their wood waste and reusing it where possible.
