The NOVUS Story
NOVUS Wood Group began in 1998 following the successful divestiture of Waste Reduction Systems, a fully integrated solid waste management company, which was founded in 1985 by William H. “Bill” Winters and others. The Company retained its core management team and infrastructure to focus exclusively on the recycling and reuse of urban woody debris into locally consumed beneficial use products. These products include Native and Colored Mulches, potting soil mixes, The NOVUS Cushion of Wood (Engineered Playground Fall Surface), biomass boiler fuel and other specialty wood by-products. NOVUS is continually searching for new and innovative products that can be manufactured from urban woody debris normally destined for landfill disposal. NOVUS seeks new opportunities to partner with existing industries and emerging technologies which require large quantities of reliable, high quality biomass feed stocks.
