Green Birch Environmental (GBE) based in Doncaster, is the latest carpet recycling and reuse business in South Yorkshire. GBE’s managing director, Neil Green explains “we’ve actually been in business for just over a year, and in that time, we’ve been working hard to build the foundations required to become a leading business offering carpet recycling and reuse of carpet tiles.”
Our carpet tiles are generally sold along with room sized roll ends of carpet through our shop (The Affordable Floor Store) in Doncaster, where we provide the local community and business with quality but affordable flooring.
“Our sole focus is the carpet trade. We exist to offer an environmentally friendly solution to carpet waste by developing new, quality products that are of benefit to other businesses, organisations and individuals.”
Continues Neil: “We’ve invested heavily in the very latest shredding and sorting machinery and our team is now processing hundreds of tonnes of carpet waste on a weekly basis at our 40,000 sq. ft premises here in Doncaster, South Yorkshire – all of our processing is done here in Doncaster.
“One of our biggest successes to date has been our decision to create a range of products for the global equestrian market. With the extensive skill, knowledge and technology we have on site, we are able to identify all the different fibres in any of the carpet waste we receive. As such, our R&D team has developed a high-quality equestrian flooring product that is ideal for use within riding schools, ménages and arenas. It’s proving to be extremely popular and we’re now exploring other potential uses for this particular product.
Adds Neil: “As well as fulfilling our commercial strategy, we’re committed to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) by empowering our local community through job creation, training programmes, charitable support and volunteering opportunities. Our people are our best asset.
GBE is interested in speaking to local authorities, manufacturers, retailers and contractors, fitters and any other producer of carpet (broadloom or tile) waste. We would like to talk to you about how we can help you with reuse and recycling of your carpet and carpet tile waste and to continue to divert carpet waste from landfill.
