Over 900,000 tonnes! This year, we’ve processed so much recycled wood into new panels. How and from where do we collect this type of wood? From locations such as container parks, demolition companies, the packaging industry, etc. But also from you: our customer! Together we set up and maintain a circular system.
Your end-of-life wood, packaging materials or production downtime also contributes to the circular economy
Want to give your wood waste an extra lease of life? Sure you can! In 2022, we recovered 25,000 tonnes of wood waste from customers through take-back programmes. We want to increase this volume substantially in the coming years. Through take-back programmes, we help you better manage and sort your wood waste. This ensures that your wood waste is not burned, but given an extra life.
This is how construction company De Meeuw contributes:
These companies are taking the step:
Circular construction in action
In Limburg, the Netherlands, a great circular initiative is growing. Together with Chainable, New Horizon and Woonpartners, we are working on urban mining or circular harvesting. We use local waste disposal companies to dispose of discarded kitchens.
Colruyt reduces environmental footprint during renovations
Consumers are no longer buying just a product. They place a great deal of importance on the entire production chain. This didn't go unnoticed by Colruyt Group. The Belgian retail group has created a fresh new look for its offices and stores, and at the same time given old fittings a new lease of life.
The aim? 115,000 tonnes of wood through take-back programmes by 2030
In 2022, we will recover 25,000 tonnes of chipboard through take-back programmes. By 2030, we want to increase this to 60,000 tonnes per year. In the meantime, we are also working hard on take-back programmes for MDF. We want to reach 55,000 tonnes per year by 2030.
