Opportunities for new wood recyclers

We are currently working with projects in Edinburgh, Leeds, Ashford (Kent) and Southend to set up new member enterprises which are scheduled to start trading before April 2019. We are now targeting Liverpool as the last major conurbation without a network member and we’re looking for someone to work with us in the city.

If you’re interested please get in touch!

We anticipate that this activity will take up all our available resources for the year, but if you would like to set up a project to start trading in the 2019/20 financial year, you can find out what’s involved here, and then contact us.
