At Bath Western Riverside, Community Wood Recycling provided a waste wood collection service, so saving timber for reuse or recycling. Collections at the site were carried out by Bristol Wood Recycling Project, a co-operative established in 2004. The wood was sorted so that it could be dealt with the most environmentally beneficial way, with anything reusable sold to the community for their own projects, or made into furniture and other products, while non reusable wood has been sent for recycling by chipping.
Collections from Bath Western Riverside have been invaluable in giving a steady flow of timber that can be cleaned up and used to stock their wood yard for the local community to buy, and for products and commissions. Here are just a few of the projects that the materials were used on:
