Wood waste levels are falling across UK

Wood waste arisings in the UK have fallen by 10% since 2007, according to new research by WRAP – the Waste and Resources Action Programme.

The decrease is primarily down to reduced activity in the construction industry, WRAP claim, which accounted for 50% of the consumption of wood and wood products in 2010.

A slowdown in the furniture and joinery sectors is also noted as a contributing factor.

London’s green office supplies distributor, Wiles Greenworld has been recycling wooden pallets for a number of years. All our green office supplies are delivered on wooden pallets which we retain and return back to the manufacturer once a sizeable amount is gathered.
