We have committed to work towards a zero waste to landfill target, and through initiatives currently in place we are well on our way to achieving this.
One such initiative is that all waste timber is collected and used as fuel to power our creosote plant. Meaning not only that less waste is sent to landfill, but also that our plant is largely self sufficient for fuel.
Calders & Grandidge is the UK's leading manufacturer of timber utility poles for the communications and power industries, track timbers for the railways, as well as a wide range of fencing, gates and landscape timbers for the agricultural, equine, local authority and domestic markets.
