As a leading educational establishment, our estate comprises a dozen sites across a city. Our environmental policy means that we aim to minimise the use of chemicals, we compost much of our green waste and re-use woodchips on flower and shrub beds as well as using them for surfacing. With an intensive tree maintenance programme set to commence this winter, we will have no shortage of chips to top up all the mulched areas. In the past we have trailered the chips to the sites, tipped the material and barrowed it onto the beds. To be honest, it is a job few of the staff want to do and the number of man-hours spent doing it is simply too high. It is also messy, with considerable effort needed to clean up afterwards. Is there a cheaper and easier solution?
