About

Glasgow wood recycling is a social enterprise and charity established in 2006. We are committed to reducing the amount of wood needlessly going to landfill by finding creative and socially inclusive ways to reuse this valuable natural resource.

The wood waste that we collect from all over Glasgow is gathered and sorted at our South Street workshop, we then reuse it to make quality furniture and design bespoke pieces for home, businesses and social sector organisations, anything from tables in bars to eco-gardens in schools!

Through these activities, and at the heart of what we do, we provide volunteer and training opportunities to local people, as a practical way of tackling unemployment and social exclusion.

Reuse or Recycle

At Glasgow Wood Recycling our main ambition is to reuse the wood we collect rather than recycling it. Meaning, we use the wood in its current form and transform it into the quality products that we sell.

Reuse is extremely environmentally friendly as it doesn’t require as extensive breakdown and re- manufacturing processes as the recycling of wood does. When we recycle the wood we collect as it is not suitable for reuse.
