NEW equipment at a recycling centre will save around 25,000 tonnes of waste wood from ending up in landfill every year.
Recycling company SITA UK has spent £500,000 in its site at Fareham’s Military Road.
The company has pledged to recycle any wood it gets through its skip hire service and not send it to landfill.
Waste wood will be separated from other materials and shredded until it can be used in new products or in energy systems.
General manager James Pike said: ‘We see our purpose as helping to protect our environment by putting waste to good use.’
