Bonfire Night 2016

We do our best to reduce waste as much as possible and send as little as we can to landfill. We recycle waste wood and invite local members of the community to collect free wood to heat their homes. At this time of year it’s nice to break with the norm and offer our waste wood to local groups to fuel their bonfire night celebrations.

If you’re attending a bonfire this week, remember to stay safe and have fun.
