If you want to save money on skip fees, see your wood waste reused, and support a project that transforms the lives of people in need... you have just found the right place
Save over £100 on skip fees
If you've got waste wood to get rid of,
and you are thinking of hiring a skip.
With the best skip prices locally of
£250 for an 8 yard skip, or
£310 for a 12 yard skip,
we could save you plenty.
Our price is just £17 per cubic yard, that's
£136 for 8 yards,
or £204 for 12 yards.
Saving you over £100 compared to a skip.
How can we do this?
Because we only collect waste wood, we don't need skips or skip lorries.
And as transit trucks are cheaper to run, you can save hundreds of pounds.
Skip or transit truck? You compare.
It's not just cheaper yard for yard.
You also get more waste per yard.
Waste wood often lands awkwardly in skips, and you pay for the air gaps it makes. Pallets in particular cause this problem.
The Building Research Establishment, or BRE, estimate this void space can be 50% of a skip.
Have a look at these photos of a recent collection to see for yourself.
Here is a pile of wood waste stacked neatly alongside a 12 yard skip.
This wood pile is higher, wider, and longer than the skip.
You would need more than one 12 yard skip.
Here is that same pile 30 minutes later.
Carefully loaded by us.
We squeezed it down to 8 cubic yards,
so that is what the customer paid for.
Just one 12 yard skip could have cost £310 or more,
but by using our service, this customer paid only £136.
That's less than half the price of a skip.
A saving of at least £174.
You don't just save money.
You save resources (and CO2).
We're here to save good timber from landfill or the shredder. Because recycling wood isn't like recycling other materials.
If you recycle glass, paper, or metal it will be made new again. If you recycle wood, it gets chipped up, and burned for energy.
It can't be made into a new tree!
Which is a shame, because wood stores CO2, and that CO2 gets released when the wood is burned.
Our collection service is different. We aim to reuse your waste wood, and keep the CO2 stored in the timber.
About 75% of what we collect can be usefully reused, e.g. for DIY timber, or made it in to products like bee hives, benches, or bird boxes.
Will your wood waste be chipped and burned?
Or made into a birdbox?
How your waste wood can change lives.
We run an active volunteering programme, for people who find themselves unemployed, and want to get back on track.
We give them a place to be, a team to join, useful things to do & skills to learn.
This gives them a purpose.
And then the magic happens.
They become confident, valuable and employable again.
You can take part in helping our volunteers, without the effort of employing and managing them yourself. All you have to do is use us for your wood waste collection.
Construction site collection service
Are you a builder who needs to get rid of site waste?
You'll need a site ready waste collector.
We've been working on construction sites with the likes of Taylor Wimpey, Kier, and Willmott Dixon since 1998.
So if it's CSCS cards, a waste licence, environmental permit, insurance, H&S practices, PPE, support with Considerate Constructors or BREEAM.
Whatever you need, just ask.
"Superb! Absolutely brilliant service...
What you took away (in one van) would have cost us 2 skips worth...
It's great that it's being reused, no good it being dumped and chipped up."
- Martin H, Clipfine Ltd.
"Absolutely happy with load sizes and value.
If you played Tetris you'd get a top score.
I wouldn't have believed you could fit so much in!"
- Alan P, Breyer Group
