Reseiclo Community Wood Recycling is a Social Enterprise based in Newport, South Wales. We collect ‘waste’ wood from all over South Wales with the aim of preventing it from being thrown away. The wood we collect is 100% reused or recycled.
The wood that we collect has been designated as waste, but a lot of it is practically new – perhaps surplus to requirements or wrongly ordered. This is perfect for DIY projects. Other wood may look old or weathered or ‘rustic’ – ideal for that ‘reclaimed’ wood look that’s all the rage. We can even plane and/or sand the wood so that it looks new – if that’s the look you like. We manufacture hand-made items from the wood we collect and sell them through our Shop in Upper Dock Street in Newport City Centre.
As a Social enterprise with strong community links, we also provide employment, training and volunteering opportunities to some of the marginalised sections of our society. We work in partnership with other local community groups and charity organisations to provide work experience for people who wouldn’t get it anywhere else.
