West Coast Group is a waste management site combined with renewable energy through biomass boilers. As a waste management site we recycle green municipal waste, timber and plasterboard then produce compost from the green waste. With our biomass system we produce and supply kiln dried fuels for the biomass industry and for commercial and domestic use. We offer a range of services, products and hire of specialist machinery.
West Coast Composting Ltd was established in 2008 and is based just off the A595 on the outskirts of Whitehaven. Initially setting off to produce compost we have recently diversified into the biomass industry having installed a biomass boiler at the site. To encompass the boilers into our business we now go by the name West Coast Group. We recover clean grade A waste timber to fuel our boiler which is brought onto site under our waste license. We utilise the heat generated from the boiler to dry products including woodchip, logs, cereals and animal bedding.
The compost that we produce is from local recycled green waste (including curb side collections) and is processed to PAS100 so it is available to purchase.
