Wood Chip Wanted, Chippenham, Ely (not Wiltshire!)

Recommended Posts

Been on the directory for about a year, and can't remember ever being contacted! 

 

Looking for wood chip to use on my allotment, able to take bulk on my driveway, or even come and collect with my own bags if not too far away.

 

Thanks!

I suggest making contact directly with Green Wood Tree Surgery, they're just up the road so must be driving past with chip.

Thanks Dan,

 

Think I may have contacted them before - but I'm tight and they weren't free!

 

Though I've got more space for a drop now, so might be able to take a full load now.

 

Thanks again.

Ah maybe not. If you couldn't take a whole load before but can now then worth asking again, part loads are labour to unload so not likely to be free.

Maybe they bulk up chip and sell it anyway in which case there's not much incentive to give it away below wholesale chip price.

No ones going to sell it cheap if you call them up. Your best bet is catching someone working near you and offering them cash for whatever they’ve got on board

I contacted a few locals for firewood just by looking for their ads.  Some said no as they use it, others want shot of it but dumped all the brash on me as well.  Finally came to an arrangement with a small company.  If they are passing and don't want it they drop it off here on the way past (and I donate bottles of wine in exchange).  I make it easy on them by not being fussy about what wood it is or when they deliver it.

 

I don't see why the same would not be true for wood chip.  I know at least one company locally who leave it out for you to collect and have actually paid to dump it at a local school (who use it for paths and as parents we have to do the path laying :) ).  Make it no hassle or even a benefit for them and you stand a chance.
