Sawmill Waste Collection Helps our Environment

Sawmill Waste Collection Helps our Environment

By on Dec 28, 2018 in Blog |

Sawmill waste collection is one of the easiest ways you can help protect the environment. Now more than ever, we all need to take steps to reduce waste by making better use of recyclable materials. Reusing wood for other purposes such as animal bedding or biomass fuel, like we do at P.H Winterton and Son, means we are maximising unwanted tree and wood debris which also preserves sequestered carbon. This process describes the long term storage of carbon dioxide or other forms of carbon to slow down or defer global warming and avoid the dangers of climate change. Trees are unique in their ability to lock up large amounts of carbon in their wood and continue to add carbon as they grow. Choosing the Best Sawmill Waste Collection Equipment Here at P.H Winterton and Son we offer a host of options for sawmill waste collection, we’ve listed them below, so you can choose the best one for you.

Animal bedding is one of the essentials to consider when having a new pet, such as a rabbit, guinea pig or hamster. Here at P.H Winterton and Son we understand that a new addition to your household needs the best start, so we’re going to look at the best way to prepare your animal bedding and make sure your new addition feels comfortable straight away. Animal bedding isn’t just for household pets, as you can also use it on farms for cows, sheep, goats and ponies. Our top quality sawdust and shavings offer comfort, absorbency and cleanliness, three of the most vital things your animals need. High Quality Animal Bedding Not all suppliers of animal bedding focus on quality, inferior materials can contain mites and small insects. Using wood shavings does not attract pests of this nature, so there is no hassle of placing your animal bedding in a bag, putting it in the freezer for 48 hours, then letting the bedding defrost and return to room temperature. PH Winterton & Son products are safe to add to the cage for your rabbit, hamster or guinea pig. For large animals like horses, wood shavings don’t produce dust, so they are ideal for animals which are prone to equine respiratory problems.

Biomass Fuel in Cheshire – Everything You Need to Know

Biomass Fuel in Cheshire – Everything You Need to Know

By on Dec 2, 2018 in Blog |

Using biomass fuel in Cheshire is a great way to do your bit for the environment and save money. Here we will take a look at some of the best uses of biomass fuel and why you don’t need to look any further than P.H Winterton and Son. Our biomass fuel in Cheshire is used frequently in the commercial sector and we’re also proud to support the agricultural sector. Benefits of biomass Fuel in Cheshire According to the Energy Saving Trust a wood fuelled biomass boiler could save you up to £800 a year compared to using an old electric heating system Wood fuel boiler systems could also qualify you for the Renewable Heating Incentive scheme, where you could receive cash payments from the UK Government across a number of years if you have an eligible renewable heating technology The carbon dioxide emitted when wood is burned is the same amount that was absorbed over the months and years that the plant was growing. As long as the fuel is sourced locally the carbon emissions are much lower than fossil fuels Biomass Fuel in Cheshire Saves Money and Improves Safety Wood which enters and stays in the waste system poses a couple of challenges when being processed; one is cost, and the other is safety, due to it being a combustible material. Recycling companies pay thousands of pounds each year to dispose of their waste wood, bringing with it the risk of fire hazards and accidents. Between 2001 and 2013 there were on average 300 fires per year at waste or recycling plants, according to the Renewable Energy Hub. On a domestic level, biomass fuel is also used in wood burning stoves and boilers, with some boilers offering a self cleaning system whereas a traditional log fire may need the grate clearing before every use. Chimneys and flue pipes for traditional wood fires and stoves will also need regular sweeping to maintain safety.
