Benefiting the environment and community
By reducing the amount of wood sent to landfill we can reduce its environmental impact. Each tonne of wood which rots in landfill is thought to produce a quantity of methane as harmful as 600 kg of CO2. So far Glasgow Wood Recycling has diverted over 4000 tonnes of wood from being wasted. We have also provided 740 volunteering opportunities as well quality training – and a route to employment – for over 190 people.
