Since its inception in 2014, Goodwood has been a pioneer of sustainable solutions by recycling untreated timber wood waste, preventing it from going to landfill and creating value-added wood products.

Each week, around 50 tonnes of untreated wood waste ends up in local landfills.

Goodwood provides businesses with an affordable collection service for untreated pallets and wood waste, significantly reducing landfill and promoting responsible waste management.

The team repurpose this wood waste into an array of products, including Goodfall playground surfacing, commercial and garden mulches, and various animal bedding options. Sustainability is a key driver behind Goodwood’s daily operations.

As calving season approaches, Bonnies Animal Bedding, manufactured by Goodwood, provides a warm, dry surface crafted from kiln-dried timber logs and pallets to enhance calf comfort and well-being.

Bonnies herd shelter bedding and stand-off pad products are robust and durable, suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

For composting barns, Goodwood offers custom wood chip tailored to farmers’ specific requirements. Once utilised, this product can be returned to the land, supporting a circular economy.

Responding to last year’s wood waste shortages, Goodwood has implemented measures to meet customer demands across the Bay of Plenty, Waikato, and Central Plateau regions, ensuring a steady supply of high-quality products.

Goodwood exemplifies how innovation and commitment can turn waste into valuable resources, fostering a sustainable future. With their motto, ‘Doing good feels great’, they invite everyone to join their mission towards sustainability. For further details, visit:
