We are delighted that Glasgow Wood Recycling, has been shortlisted as a finalist in the National Recycling Awards 2019. Have a look at finalists here.
Glasgow Wood Recycling is a social enterprise and charity which finds meaningful ways to reuse and recycle waste wood. The enterprise aims to transform this valuable resource into quality garden and indoor furniture and at the same time provides a wide range of volunteering and training opportunities. GWR has prevented over 4,000 tonnes of wood waste going to landfill. They have worked with landscape architects to prototype and build award winning community gardens. The social enterprise has designed furniture made from reclaimed timber to meet a diverse range of customer needs from the public to hotels such as Gleneagles and the local Hilton. You can see some of their products here.
Earlier this year they won the prestigious Citi Microentrepreneurship Awards at the Hilton Liverpool in the “Sustainability” category. The awards are delivered in partnership with Responsible Finance and the Citi Foundation.
Congratulations once again and good luck.
The MRW National Recycling Awards 2019 will take place on Thursday 27 June at the London Hilton on Park Lane to recognise and celebrate best practice and innovation in recycling and waste management.
