Waste Wood Collections

Based in Derby, we offer an efficient and cost effective waste wood collection service to Derbyshire, Derby City, Nottingham City, Nottinghamshire, and all areas in between. We collect from many sources including building sites, schools, houses, industrial units and shops.

Cut your waste disposal costs

We charge per cubic yard of wood taken, and we’re cheaper than using a skip. We always pack the wood tightly, so you know you’re getting the best value.

Preserve resources

None of the wood we collect is ever sent to landfill, but we don’t just recycle wood – we reuse it, returning the wood to the community and ensuring no usable wood gets ‘downcycled’ into woodchip.

Support those who need it

We’re dedicated to providing training opportunities and fairly-waged permanent jobs for people who really need them, and we work in partnership with local organisations to help people back into work.

Fulfil CSR and Environmental Policy commitments

When it comes to wood disposal, we represent the highest level of commitment to ethical business, and can offer complete reporting information about how the wood was used.

How it works

The system is simple – register on the scheme and then simply pile up all your wood waste in a suitable location. When there’s about a skip load, give us a call, and we’ll come and collect it in one of our cage vans.

For your total peace of mind we will:

  • Arrive within 48 hours of being notified (in most circumstances)
  • Be correctly licensed and insured and supply Waste Transfer Notes
  • Have trained staff with CSCS cards/appropriate Health & Safety training and the correct PPE
  • Provide quality Environmental Reports and Certificates of Recycling

We collect virtually all waste wood or wooden items. The wood is carefully sorted and used in the most environmentally beneficial way.

We cannot collect broken items, warped, split or worm infested wood or non-wood items such as chipboard, MDF unless it is a sheet of reasonable size, contaminated wood (i.e. Creosote) or any Formica faced (laminated) chipboard. Please contact your local council’s website for waste removal and places to dispose of the wood we cannot recycle.

We only offer a collection service and we will not accept any wood delivered to us under any circumstances.
