This month we talk to Ben Moss from Bristol Wood Recycling Project (BWRP).

Ben set up the recycling project in 2004 with the aims of:

  • Recycling timber from the waste stream,
  • Promoting social inclusion,
  • Being self funding
  • Providing affordable timber to the community. This is an excellent project that benefits the community on many levels and gets the maximum use out of precious materials.

BWRP is part of nationwide group of wood recycling projects – hopefully this episode will encourage you to seek out your local project and get involved… or start your own!

** Warning – there are a couple of choice, naughty words used in this episode.

A table I just finished, reclaimed timber for the legs with a scaffold plank top.
So much wood!
