Green Waste Disposal
Any green waste left after tree surgery works can often become an issue following the completion of a job, and some tree surgeons are not prepared to remove waste from the site. Here at Bawden Tree Care, we consistently leave the sites we are called to in a clean, safe and tidy state. Prior to any work commencing, we always explain to customers what is to happen with the arisings; these arrangements tend to be summarised within a written quotation.
Doing the Work For You
Tree work waste can include timber, brash, wood-chip, sawdust and tree roots. Many customers do not wish to retain this waste, so we always offer to remove it. You can rest assured that arisings are only ever disposed of through burning if all other options are impractical, or where there is a need to control the spread of some specific diseases. Bawden Tree Care is registered with the Environment Agency as a listened waste carrier and our staff always have a copy of the registration certificate in the vehicle. We are also accredited with ISO 14001; all waste produced and handled by the team is disposed of responsibly, and in most cases, recycled.
Keeping the Arisings
If the customer chooses for the arisings not to be removed, we will always encourage customers to take into consideration multiple factors when deciding what is to be done with the waste, such as what the site is used for, how the arisings will affect site access and how big the site actually is. Safety must be considered, and pests and disease must be managed effectively. The potential for damage to the site and neighbouring property must be considered, as well as the general effect of the amenity value of the site. We also recommend that the scope for use as wood chip mulch, firewood or bio-mass is considered.
