Hard to believe that this time last year we were rather nervously taking on the Sheffield Wood Recycling Business from its former owners. Part of the National Wood Recycling Network, this is a great idea where waste timber is collected at skip cost from construction sites and then ‘upcycled’ as reusable affordable timber. Of course here in Sheffield there’s no shortage of creative people transforming this material into an amazing set of new uses. To date though my favourite is still the reuse of the new IKEA construction pallets to create our very own Green Estate flat pack, self assembly stools and benches!
