New enterprise provides coverage to North Essex

Community Wood Recycling welcomes North Essex Wood Recycling, for the first time extending our network to provide coverage for the areas surrounding Colchester, Harwich and Ipswich.

The directors of North Essex wood Recycling, Kevin and Michael, had harboured ambitions for a long time to set up their own enterprise. Inspired by the success of the Bromley Wood recycling project, which Kevin had managed for nearly 6 six years, they both felt that they could offer help to a wider selection of the community. They have already established significant links with volunteer groups in the Colchester area and hope that they will soon be able to establish a permanent base in the town.

Operating from temporary premises just outside Chelmsford, they made their first collections in March and are open for trading. If you’re interested in volunteering, buying wood or commissioning bespoke wooden products, they invite you to visit them at:-

3 Ashes Barn
Fairfield Hall Road

If you want to visit, please call first on 07961 084 449 as they may be out on collections.
