About Us

About Us

We are a local family owned business on the outskirts of Whitehaven and have been operating this waste management company since 2008.

Also with our extensive farming, agricultural, horticultural and environmental knowledge we will help you get the best out of your garden and your renewable fuel needs. The business is owned by Tim and Tracey West and is run alongside our agricultural contracting business T W West Ltd which has been running since 1985.

Initially the business set out recycling garden waste and processing this into a quality compost that we sell to the community. We then expanded into recycling timber and plasterboard and most recently have installed biomass boilers to generate renewable energy. This lead us to where we are today producing woods fuels for commercial and domestic users. You will find us on the Biomass Suppliers List (BSL) for woodchip and logs which are kiln dried to optimum moisture content.
