Recycling Demolition Wood

The majority of demolition wood is non-hazardous, however, certain materials have had a form of pressure treatment, for example, tile laths or roofing battens, meaning they are all classed as hazardous waste by the Environment Agency (Grade D).

Demolition Wood

It is vital that hazardous demolition wood does not contaminate non-hazardous demolition wood, and that it is disposed of in a legal yet sustainable manner. HBS Waste can offer a service that caters for the disposal of all demolition woods, including hazardous. This is because we can control the entire process, from transport to processing, right through to disposal.

How we dispose of Demolition wood

We believe our approach is the most sustainable option available to date. This is because we offer a range of disposal solutions, each best suited to different conditions and types of demolition wood. HBS waste are not simply a glorified waste broker that collects and handles demolition wood, sending the product to another company’s disposal site, we offer a one stop shop for all disposal needs in-house.

We dispose of the wood by using a Waste Incineration Directive compliant combined heat and power plant. This results in the production of renewable energy in the form of heat and electricity for poultry housing, and to power drying floors for animal bedding. Alternatively, if the wood is of good enough quality, we may upcycle it by reshaping and repurposing it. This means that as well as offering a sustainable solution we can also offer a competitive price for the disposal and recycling of demolition wood.
