Move On Wood Recycling

Move On Wood Recycling is a social enterprise in Granton. We collect waste wood, sell quality timber and upcycled furniture, and provide employability training for vulnerable people. Our aims are to save resources by reusing and recycling waste timber that would otherwise go to landfill; and to create sustainable jobs, as well as training and volunteering opportunities, for local people – especially those who might find it difficult to get into or back to employment.


Current opportunities

Our van drivers assist on waste wood collections from trade and domestic customers, as well as dropping off customer orders of timber and upcycled furniture. Volunteers must be physically capable, as some heavy lifting of timber on and off the collection vans will also be required. Based at our workshop in Granton, you will be an integral part of our friendly and supportive team of staff, volunteers and trainees.

Our wood workshop volunteers get hands on cleaning up and de-nailing timber; learning how to use a variety of woodworking tools; and building upcycled furniture. Volunteers contribute to our environmental mission by reusing and recycling waste timber that would otherwise go to landfill. Based at our workshop in Granton, you will be an integral part of our friendly and supportive team of staff, volunteers and trainees.
