Move On Wood Recycling

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

Current opportunities

We run a wood recycling project from our workshop in Granton. We collect waste wood, clean it and sell it back to the public. We need help with collections and delivering orders. The role requires you to drive the van and handle timber on and off the vehicle. On quite days you could help with other aspects of the project. We aim to keep as much timber as possible in use whilst providing training for young, unemployed people. All drivers for move on must join the PVG scheme.

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.
