Sustainability

At Watling Reclamation, we are inspired everyday by the beautiful ways in which our customers use reclaimed materials. As a team of nature lovers and countryside enthusiasts, we are proud to be part of a movement where recycling and reusing is put in the spotlight, doing our bit for the planet that we love so much. 

The UK throws away 70,151,260 tons of building materials every year. Recycling building materials consumes energy and most recycled materials have limited use. Much of this waste is incinerated or goes to landfill. Only 1% of all building materials are reused today despite the environmental benefits far outweighing those for recycling and throwing them away. This video by the FCRBE Interreg project demonstrates why reusing building materials is the best way forward:
