Wood Recycling Volunteer

  • VO71938


Description

Volunteers are invited to help with all aspects of the wood recycling project. This can range from wood collections from building sites to making furniture and promoting what we do online.

Organisation aims and objectives

We’re a social enterprise based in Granton which collects waste wood from anywhere across Edinburgh and the Lothians. We assess what portion of the waste wood can be reused instead of being chipped, which reduces landfill use and the production of methane gas. We sell quality used timber and upcycled furniture and other items. We also provide work experience, volunteering and training opportunities, including employability training for vulnerable young people
