May best month yet for NBCS

By Published On: June 30, 2011Categories: Network news

May was the best month yet for the National Builders Collection Scheme (NBCS) with over 2800 cubic yards of wood waste collected from our national builder clients and pushed up the waste hierarchy. Collections were made from 78 sites for 30 different builders by 18 different members of the network as the scheme continues to expand.

This May was such a fantastic month for the NBCS that it’s interesting to compare it to the previous Mays the scheme has been running for.

Number of sites collected through the NBCS

The NBCS as a whole went through the 4000 tonne mark this May since its inception at the beginning of 2008. The total now stands at 4239 tonnes of waste wood collected and saved from landfill (to end of May 2011). With the fantastic growth we’ve been experiencing we expect to smash through the 5000 tonne barrier too later this year and maybe even reach 6000 tonnes by the end of the year!

The NBCS also collected from its 300th site with the total now standing at 314 different sites collected from by the end of this May.
