Protect the environment | Environmental policy | Wood chip briquettes

At R.S.Hill, the enviroment is very important and we are great believers in waste minimisation.
Recycling comes with many benefits. The main ones being:

  • Helps conserve vital resources
  • Protects the environment
  • Financial rewards
  • We recycle 85% of the waste that we generate. This is recycled either onsite, when suitable, or at our yard in Douglastown.

R.S.Hill are also SEPA registered waste carriers.
All of our waste concrete, bricks and rubble is crushed using our state of the art, mobile trackered crusher. During the crushing process fines are separated via a side elevator, valuable metals are separated via an over band magnet, and the crusher is also fitted with a dust suppression system to further reduce environmental impact.

This crusher is available for hire with an operator. Call or e-mail for more information.
Our workshop and offices are heated by a biomass heating system utilising the sawdust and shavings generated by our manufacturing workshop.
R.S.Hill also has a subsiduary, Strathmore Briquette Ltd, which manufactures high quality wood chip briquettes from clean recycled timber.

You can of course also come and see how they burn in our wood burning stove at our showroom in Douglastown.
Strathmore Briquette also recycles cardboard and paper to manufacture lower quality briquettes for commerical heating systems.
