Sawmill collection may be a service that we provide to you or it could be something that you’re considering. Either way, here at P.H. Winterton and Son, we like to be fully transparent with our customers about where their waste is going. One of the things that separates us from other collection companies is how we use the waste to positively impact on the planet. To find out how your waste is helping the environment, read ahead in our latest blog post. Animal Bedding We believe that all waste should be used rather than wasted. That’s why we recycle leftover sawmill and use it for other purposes. Thanks to our unique and highly reliable machinery, we can create the highest quality animal bedding if the quality is still to a high enough standard. Whether you’re looking for bedding for a cow, sheep, dog or guinea pig, our top quality recycled bedding will guarantee comfort, cleanliness and absorbency. To find out more, read our guide on animal bedding. Biomass Fuel Our equipment also allows us to create the highest quality biomass fuel supplies. In collaboration with Cheshire-based organic recycling specialists, CRJ Services, we have been able to produce around 25 tonnes of biomass per week. Biomass fuel is an organic material which is produced in a renewable manner to create heat or power. We produce two types of biomass fuel using grade A wood residue from our sawmill waste collections. These are split into the following two grades: P16 Grade – A smaller size of wood chip P35 Grade – A grade wood with no contaminants present These can then be burnt in a boiler for industrial heating and electricity. All of our biomass fuel is of the quality and specification required by the specialist sectors that we cater for. Thanks to CRJ’s expert knowledge and specialist machinery, we have been able to be a part of the Government’s Biomass Fuel Supplier List. Therefore, you can rest assured that you will receive the highest quality product, both quickly and efficiently. To find out more about how to use and purchase our biomass products, read our guide.

The reason why Weston Sawmill’s sawmill waste collection service has proved so successful is the number of relationships we have established with joinery firms all over the country. Our premises are based in Staffordshire, but our service stretches as far south as Portsmouth, Southampton and Hampshire plus spots in Cornwall and Dover. Chopping Away at the Competition One of our long-standing clients is Chipmunk South West Bulk, based in Taunton in the south-west of England. Having been in business for over 35 years, Chipmunk specialises in manufacturing high-quality wood-based products such as animal and cubicle bedding, riding and turnout surfaces plus biomass fuel and horticulture products for the peat manufacturing trade. P.H Winterton’s tipper units are 140 cubic yards, making them similar to walking bulk trays and able to carry a large amount of sawmill waste from sites. For smaller joinery outfits, we offer a 20-foot open-top waste skip for off-cuts, wood chips, pallets and general waste. We get calls from joineries all the time and bring one of our tipper units to their site to be filled and then returned to us for biomass fuel and animal bedding. P.H Winterton is always looking to become more environmentally friendly, which is the reason all of our vehicles are tracked to reduce fuel consumption, where possible. We are also actively looking at ways to reduce or plastic and energy use in all operations. Why We Use Sawmill Waste for Biomass Fuel All of the timber we use for biomass fuel is A-grade, meaning it has no contaminants; making it very popular for heating chicken houses plus heating buildings and warehouses and drying products such as timber.
