Thought I would post a piece about the National Community Wood Recycling project (of which we are a part).
The National Community Wood Recycling Project (NCWRP) was founded in 2003 to help set up and develop a nationwide network of wood recycling social enterprises.
Modelled on the multi-award-winning Brighton & Hove Wood Recycling Project (also known as The Wood Store Brighton), the aim of these enterprises is to:
- Save resources by rescuing and re-using waste timber that would otherwise be landfilled (or at very best downcycled into woodchip).
- Create sustainable jobs, as well as training and volunteering opportunities, for local people – especially those who might find it difficult to get into or back to employment.
The NCWRP aims to see as many of these centres set up as possible and we are working hard to franchise the opportunity as widely as we can.
With so much perfectly good timber ending up in landfill and so many enthusiastic people available (and keen to work for such a worthwhile cause) we believe that the UK could support around 40 to 50 such enterprises.
