My studio & workshop tries to pursue a #zerowaste policy. In practice, this means that all materials are bought on a project by project basis and ordered with the minimum excess. All solid waste & sawdust will be collected and recycled as fuel for open fires, log burning stoves & renewable heating systems. Where possible, excess will be either stored or distributed within the local community to people struggling with heating costs and in addition, a system for donations in exchange for fuel will be set up to help people make a contribution to local charities. The Defra website has guidance for the burning of composite materials like MDF.
