Somerset Wood Recycling is a not for profit social enterprise, based in Weston-super-Mare and up and running since 2007. Most frequently our work centres around people whose lives aren’t quite ‘right’ – whether that’s because of unemployment, criminal behaviour, drug and alcohol issues, mental health issues etc., Our aim is to help them reposition their lives in a positive way.
We are currently collecting and re-using only a small percentage of the waste wood produced in the Weston area, so there is a lot of room for us to grow. We want to increase our collections, the volume of products we make and the commissions we undertake. Also, crucially, we want to carry on contributing to the regeneration of Weston by offering volunteering, training and employment opportunities to local people.
