Environmental Initiatives

All green waste is removed from contract sites and transported back to our main base where it is processed using our own specialist equipment. It is then composted down and used back on sites as soil improver/fertiliser where required.

On tree jobs, all timber is removed from sites and is processed at our main base where the resultant wood chip is used to fuel our bio mass boiler which heats our offices and workshops.

All rainwater from our offices and workshops is collected and recycled. This water is then used on sites for spraying and power washing, as well as cleaning our own machinery.
