July was a fantastic month for the NBCS but August has proved to be in a whole different league! 2471.5 yds³ (over 247 tonnes) of wood were collected from 17 different national builders over 57 of their sites. These included 9 Leadbitter sites, 8 apiece for Breyer and Kier and 7 for Taylor Wimpey. 19 members of our network of wood recycling social enterprises (86%) made collections under the scheme. This was all record-shattering stuff and a reflection of everyone’s hard work.
The below comparison of August 2010 and the same month last year provide a snapshot of the progress of the NBCS. On many of the indicators it’s more than doubled in 12 months!
