By using chipping and shredding machinery, we are able to reduce selective pallets to mulch. Mulch works well to reduce a plants water intake by preventing soil erosion while keeping weeds at bay. By providing waste recycling services, we are able to prevent pallets from ending up in landfill or being burned, releasing carbon into the atmosphere instead of acting as a carbon sink in the soil.
We are able to accept green waste for recycling, which we then process into a high grade product used to add organic matter to soil. It can also be included in soil mixtures to create a healthy environment for a variety of growing purposes. Organic matter increases the soils ability to retain water as well as greatly increasing the soils nutrient holding capacity, which in turn, provides better nutrition to gardens, lawns and plants around our region while helping prevent fertilizer runoff. Added into soil mixtures, it provides these benefits to the mix without adding chemicals or artificial ingredients.
Similar to our pallet reduction process, timber waste can also be shredded or chipped into mulch. As mulch, the timber chips can be used to keep weeds down and reduce soil water evaporation, lowering water consumption. In organic form, timber that would otherwise be wasted can instead be used to add an organic element to the soil, increasing its ability to hold water and nutrients, resulting in healthier plants, lawns and gardens.
