Watling Reclamation’s Commitment to Sustainability
We are inspired every day by the beautiful ways 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. We believe that your local reclamation yard should be the first point of call when it comes to searching for materials for your garden and landscaping projects!
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 from reclamation yards is the best way forward:
