At The Wild Deck Company, we are passionate about the environment and, from sourcing timber through to working and travelling, we endeavour to work efficiently and recycle or re-use everything we can.
The Wild Deck Company uses timber that has been sustainably sourced and it is our policy not to use materials that do not have authentic, sustainability credentials.
We consider the FSC to be a genuine guarantee of sustainability, and we find that locally produced softwood and hardwood satisfies our standards and those of our clients.
Where possible, we minimise our road travel to help reduce congestion and avoid excessive fossil fuel use. Working nationally we visit clients all over the UK so we are careful to keep the impact of our travel to a minimum.
We generally make one trip for an installation and will then stay onsite or nearby until the entire project is completed. We ensure that subsequent trips to inspect and maintain installations are scheduled in with other visits in the area to reduce our carbon footprint.
We have designed and constructed a superbly efficient wood burner, affectionately called Bessie. She keeps us warm in the winter and we carefully grade and burn any timber waste and off cuts that cannot be re-used. Even our ash is saved and used for agricultural purposes. Metal is carefully scrapped and any non-combustible materials, unsuitable for fuel, are either stored for re-use or disposed of locally.
