After 14 years trading at the historic Cattle Market, Bristol Wood Recycling Project now has keys to its new premise in William Street, St Philips. The project’s last day of trading at Cattle Market Road will be on Saturday 27th January, and Unit 4, William Street, BS2 0RG will open to trade and public on Friday 2nd February.
Co-Director Kaleb Debbage said
“We’re very excited about William Street and enormously grateful to all our volunteers, old and new, whose enthusiasm and dedication is enabling us to move seamlessly. Having dared to hope for a central location it’s quite incredible that we’ll be in and trading so immediately. Our collections service is uninterrupted, and we’re already taking workshop orders. The new place being so close to the Days Road Household Waste Recycling Centre is also a great bonus.”
BWRP founder Ben Moss added,
“There’s a huge volunteer effort going on at the Cattle Market to clear the site and ensure our ever gracious landlords, Bristol City Council, have vacant possession by Monday 5th. We’ve still got loads of stock which we’d be delighted to sell even cheaper than usual, so get on down to our last day sale on Saturday 27th. We’ll also be selling our hallowed ‘ark’, known to customers as the great old timber shed outside at the Cattle Market. Details of that on our Facebook page.”
