B & E Boys have started offering their wood waste for theincreasing number of households that have wood burning stoves.
The construction industry has to complete Site Waste Management Plans on many of the projects it undertakes in order that waste is prevented, minimised and recycled. The Company already recycles card, plaster materials, metal and surplus construction materials. As well as this all staff at the Company receive information and training to ensure the correct amount of materials are bought through our buying department, who then ensure that the minimum amount of packaging is used, and that we utilise surplus materials from other projects thus preventing waste. When the company does incur waste materials that have to be disposed of then we use compactors to help reduce the amount of transportation required to take this to landfill.
The Company also carefully manages transportation of staff and materials to site to minimise the effect of its activities on the environment. This all forms part of the Company’s accreditation to the internationally recognised ISO 14001 Environmental Management Standard.
As from September the company is further trying to reduce its waste streams by offering waste packaging wood which will be cut up and bagged for use in wood burning stoves.
In construction, bulky items are often delivered on wood pallets for ease of transportation and movement around the site. Whilst the Company re-uses many of these pallets, eventually they become damaged beyond repair or unsafe to use.
Fire wood is now available to purchase at Kingfisher Rawtenstall and you can call 01706 836059 to arrange collection. The company also has a supply of logs from tree pruning.
