Waste Management - The Woodhorn Group

The Woodhorn Group operates three licensed waste management sites in West Sussex and Hampshire with a total licensed capacity of 108,000 tonnes.

We receive over 80,000 tons of local green waste each year at our sites in Tangmere, Runcton and Hayling Island, which is composted to create our Earth Cycle range of high quality peat free compost and topsoil products.

At our sites we are licensed to accept:

EWC Code 02 01 03 – plant tissue waste (All sites)
EWC Code 02 01 04 – wastes from forestry (All sites)
EWC Code 03 01 01 – waste bark (All sites)
EWC Code 20 02 01 – biodegradable waste (All sites)

We are not able to accept soil, stone, hardcore, turf and hazardous waste. Any logs, branches or roots must be under 10cm in diameter.

With direct access to the A27 and A259, our sites are suitable for a wide customer base. Our customers currently range from Local Authorities across the South East and national Waste Management Companies, to local landscape gardeners, skip companies and the local industry.

Our Green Waste Story

The video takes viewers through the 14 week composting production cycle, showing each carefully controlled stage of the journey from the waste bin collection right the way through to the final product being delivered to their door.

All the green waste we receive is composted under carefully controlled conditions to produce high quality products, as defined by the British Standard for Composted Materials – BSI PAS 100.

Public access to our sites is restricted due to health and safety reasons. We ask that customers looking to purchase our Earth Cycle products do so from one of our licensed stockists or from our Earth Cycle website.
