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.
