Community Wood Recycling

John Sisk & Son have teamed up with a community wood recycling service to save resources, reduce costs and to make a change to other people’s lives. The timber is 100% recycled and nothing goes to landfill.

The community wood recycling team will hand load trucks as tightly as possible to reduce the void space (up to 40%) that is often found when using a skip. They collect the timber on a 3.5 tonne pick-up as it is the most environmentally friendly method, saving carbon as less fuel is used, less pollution is generated and more material can be saved for re-use.

The wood is carefully sorted and used in the most environmentally beneficial way:

  • Long lengths and sheet materials are used for DIY or building, and whenever possible, pallets are reused
  • Some is used to make reclaimed-wood products
  • Much of the remainder is chopped up for firewood and kindling
  • The rest is remade into chipboard or used as energy chips
