Business overview

Proud to be a not-for-profit Social Enterprise, saving resources and creating jobs. We collect "waste" wood, which is reused and recycled through our timber yard and shop.

The Woodstore is the trading name of the Brighton & Hove Wood Recycling Project. We are a Social Enterprise established in 1998 to do something about the amount of reusable wood which was being sent to landfill. At that time no-one recycled wood, so builders and other waste wood producers had no option apart from throwing it away in a skip.

We currently rescue around 1 tonne of this precious resource each day and work hard to find the most environmentally beneficial use for it. We sort it, clean it up and sell it for DIY, make it into a wide range of products or turn it into firewood. Anything we can’t use

in these ways is made into wood-chip. Nothing is returned to the waste stream. Part of our work is to offer volunteer positions to people who are looking for work experience and skills training.

We are part of a growing UK network of not-for-profit Social Enterprises, the National Community Wood Recycling Project, creating jobs and saving resources nationwide.
