SO Modular, the Welsh timber frame construction specialist, has added a new skip hire division to its ever-growing, innovative and sustainable business.
The new division, called SO Skips, will offer a variety of open skip sizes: 8-yard, 16-yard and high back 16-yard to both commercial business and private customers.
Timber wastage recovered from the skips will be recycled in the recently installed biomass boiler at its brand-new manufacturing facility in Neath, South Wales – further strengthening the company’s commitment to sustainably manufacturing low carbon homes.
The recovered timber will be used to reheat the manufacturing facility, and avoid it being transported to landfill for disposal.
As well as heating the factory and offices, the biomass boiler is also used to dry treated timber in the facility’s new in-house treatment tank, helping the company reduce its own fuel costs and aiding in its goal to create a sustainable, renewable process for timber frame manufacturing.
Charlotte Hale, Operations Director at SO Modular, said: “This is a very exciting new division to launch for us here at SO Modular. That fact that we will be recycling all waste timber recovered from the skips means that customers know it won’t be going to landfill, making it a far greener option for them, and helping reduce their carbon footprint – which I’m sure is something we all want.
“With SO Skips, we promise very competitive rates and reliable, fast delivery and collection from our fully licenced service.”
