4 reasons to dump your wood skip and use East Midlands Wood Recycling

Handloading our trucks means we can reduce void space by up to 40%

For businesses producing waste wood, a skip is not the only option, or the cheapest…

1. You can dump the skip – and save money!

If your business has waste wood on site, chances are you use a wood skip. Our collection service uses 3.5 tonne caged trucks, and can work out as a cheaper alternative.

We handload our trucks and really the pack the wood in, reducing void space by between 20% – 40% – and because we charge by the cubic yard this can lead to significant savings.

2. You’ll get an efficient, professional service

We’ve got years of experience.  All our staff have comprehensive training and have the correct PPE. We’re fully insured and licensed waste carriers and supply waste transfer notes for every collection. Booking a collection is simple and straightforward and most collections are booked and completed within 48 hours.

3. You’ll help the environment

Our collection service is environmentally the best option out there for waste wood removal and an ideal way for you to meet your own environmental goals.

By choosing us, you’re diverting material from the waste stream because your wood is graded for re-use. We save perfectly good quality wood from going to landfill or automatically being ‘downcycled’ into woodchip. Instead, we do our utmost to re-use as much as possible for re-sale for DIY, to make wooden products or to be sold on as firewood. Even our transport is also environmentally better – our vehicles are smaller and less polluting than big skip lorries.

4. You’re creating jobs and training opportunities for local disadvantaged people

Choosing our collection service means that you’re supporting a social enterprise committed to changing lives. We help people who are marginalised and excluded from employment to gain confidence and move into employment. Our wood recycling project allows them to move from simple tasks which don’t need any previous experience, like unloading the van, to making things in our workshop or serving customers.
