What we do

Recycle waste wood and create jobs

We provide a commercial waste wood collection service, working with most of the country’s top construction companies and with businesses in all sectors that produce timber or pallet waste.

Supply timber

You can find wood for all your DIY needs including softwood in standard dimensions, plywood chipboard and OSB, hardwoods, pallet slats, cable reels and scaffold board. Because our wood is reclaimed stock will vary, so contact your local wood store to find out what they have today.

Change lives

We work with local people, bringing men and women who are marginalised into a supportive workplace. They become part of our team and gain training and work experience as well as a sense of pride. We see them flourish, moving from social isolation, loneliness and lack of confidence to paid work, shared achievements and the sense of camaraderie that comes from working together to help the environment.
