- This weekend we marked 20 years of the country’s first community wood recycling project, The Wood Store Brighton. We were joined by volunteers from the early days of the project, wood recyclers from all over the country, and some of the many builders who use our wood recycling services.
- To commemorate their 20th birthday EMERGE has joined forces with Marble Beers, an award winning craft brewery, who designed and brewed a Berliner Weisse style beer named 'The 3Rs', in homage to the mantra Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
- This is an important role within the Aldingbourne Country Centre, supporting the environmental and recycling ethos of the Trust. Working with the Wood Recycling Senior (WRS), the post holder will be involved in all aspects of the Wood Recycling enterprise – from collecting waste wood and driving the van through to developing networks and sales leads.
- We are delighted to have been named Wood Recycling Business of the Year at the Awards for Excellence in Recycling and Waste - a great achievement from everyone in the network.
- The Community Wood Recycling social franchise is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Set up in 1998, Brighton & Hove Wood Recycling Project has been saving resources and serving the community for two decades. Community wood recycling was set up to promote the concept around the country and now there are around 30 enterprises nationwide.
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.
