At Sustainable Environmental Consultants, We Give Wood Chips a Second Life
“As SEC’s Erosion Control Operations Manager, I am proud of the work we do because I know we are making a difference for the environment. We recycled 10,000 cubic yards of wood chips last year, reusing them for a new purpose.”
- Shannon Lux, Operations Manager
When a tree service trims a tree, the trimmings can go one of three routes:
At Sustainable Environmental Consultants, we take the mulched wood chips and fill them into sediment control Filtrexx® SiltSoxx™.
SiltSoxx™ is designed to prevent erosion, and each one installed at a job site:
Gives trees a second life
Keeps our water clean
Protects the environment
We recycle three cubic yards of wood chips for every pallet of SiltSoxx™
SiltSoxx™ is cut open when a project is complete to allow the wood chips to blend into the soil and break down into organic matter repurposing waste and adding carbon back into our soil for positive environmental impacts.
