House Clearance Dundee Recycling Regulations
House Clearance Dundee reports it is estimated that as much as 1.3 million tonnes of wooden packaging (mainly pallets) enters the UK waste stream, yet in 2013 a mere 120,264 tonnes were reported by obligated business. The Environment Agency is understood to be investigating the reasons behind this massive under-declaration of wood packaging. Until this year, there was no requirement to recycle or recover wood packaging waste. This year just a handful of wood reprocessors have been accredited by the Environment Agency to issue wood recovery PRNs. Now, there is a dispute as to who should issue the PRNs for wood reprocessing. Under the Environment Agency’s current guidance, the board manufacturers are the “reprocessor” and are able to issue PRNs for wood chip that they use in the manufacture of MDF and particle board.
Wood recyclers that chip or shred waste wood can only issue PRNs when they send their wood chip for alternative uses. The wood recyclers (represented by the Wood Recycling Association) claim that they should be able to issue PRNs for all of the wood that they recycle. House Clearance Dundee is a Scottish based recycler that has been in operation for five year. They allow free tipping of wood waste, which is a mixture of demolition waste, packaging waste and process waste. They chip around 400 tonnes of wood per month, and expect this to increase to 700 tonnes per month by next year. They have two markets for their product: sale of chipped wood to one of the board manufacturers, or direct use as mulch or animal bedding. As an illustration of the ambiguity of the packaging regulations, wood reprocessors such as Reivers are able to issue wood PRNs when they send their product for use as mulch or animal bedding, but not when it goes to board manufacturers. In the latter case, it is the board manufacturers that will issue PRNs.
The Wood Recycling Association has found common cause with recyclers of other materials such as glass and steel. They are jointly lobbying government in order to press for a change in the PRN system which will allow them to issue PRNs for all packaging waste that they reprocess. “We are the main drivers for packaging waste recycling” says House Clearance Dundee.
