Move On Wood Recycling is social enterprise in Edinburgh which collects waste wood, sells quality timber, and provides work experience, volunteering and training.

Waste wood collection

With a workshop in Granton, we collect waste wood from anywhere across Edinburgh and the Lothians. Our waste wood collection service is available to trade and domestic customers.

We look at what waste wood can be reused instead of being chipped, which reduces landfill use and the production of methane gas.

High quality timber

Our stock of timber changes regularly, but we usually carry plywood, floorboards and various construction timbers as standard.

Employability training

Split between our Edinburgh office and Move On Wood Recycling workshop, we offer Building Brighter Futures, an eight week employability course for young people who are interested in gaining qualifications and skills in a wood workshop. The course allows young people to achieve employment focused accreditation, certification and practical work experience. We also provide ongoing support to help young people achieve the next step on their employment journey.

Volunteering opportunities

Are you interested in recycled wood? Would you like to learn new skills, make friends and help the environment? If so, volunteering with Move On Wood Recycling could be the perfect volunteering opportunity for you.

We welcome people from all backgrounds and provide full training and support.
