We reclaim used scaffolding boards, as well as other wood from the building industry. Old boards become planters in greening projects and tables and shelving in peoples’ homes and businesses. Used floorboards are made into biodiversity boxes, providing much needed space for animals to nest.
Why we reclaim wood
Wood waste from building sites amounts to around 850 thousand tonnes per year in UK. Much of that will be left to rot in landfill. FRP prolongs the lifespan of the wood, reducing landfill and Co2 emissions.
FRP runs carpentry mentoring sessions where we teach and skill-share, empowering community members to make a contribution towards a greener tomorrow.
