As one of the largest Arboricultural and Landscape management & consultancy service providers in the UK it is imperative that we minimise the impacts of our operations.

 

We do this by:

 

Recycling /Reuse

 

Summary of Requirements:

AEMG recycle and reuse 100% of their wood waste.


Our new, purpose built, 10,000sqft facility in Redditch has been specifically designed to accommodate all of our arisings and timber sections.


Under a T6 exemption license issued by the Environment Agency AEMG have the capability to store up to 500 tonnes of wood chip and timber prior to transportation.


The wood chip and timber is stored in separate areas to ensure that loading, processing and transportation is simplified and contamination from other sources is eliminated.


The arisings are recycled / reused in two ways:

 

Sustainability

In 2011 AEMG implemented a Carbon Management & Reduction Plan which identified the recycling / reuse of wood chip as being the quickest way of reducing the company’s carbon emissions.
We are now working on reducing the impacts of our operations in other areas such as fuel consumption, electricity usage, water conservation and the recycling of other waste streams.
