Somerset Wood Recycling

Somerset Wood Recycling is a not-for-profit social enterprise, set up early in 2007 to re-use and recycle waste wood, and to support regeneration in Weston-super-Mare. SWR was set up by partners Tristan Tudor and Liz Roberts who say they wish they had taken more seriously the warnings they received before they set up the business about how much hard work it would be! SWR currently collect and re-use only a small percentage of the waste wood produced in the Weston-super-Mare area, and believe there is a lot of room for growth.

SWR produce a wide range of fantastic products coming up with extremely creative ideas for using the different types of timber that comes in. They also specialise in one-off commissions, frequently carrying out work in public places for the local council, so you can be sure their products will stand the test of time.

They plan to keep on increasing the volume of products that they make and to carry on contributing to the regeneration of Weston-super-Mare by offering volunteering, training and employment opportunities to local people.
