Reseiclo Community Wood Recycling was set up in 2007
as a Social Enterprize and started collecting waste
wood and selling timber and wooden items from the
workshop in Alderney Street in Newport, South Wales.
With help and support from the National Community Wood Recycling Project in Brighton and one contract for waste collection - Taylor Woodrow (as it was before it's merger with George Wimpey to form Taylor Wimpey) and one small truck - the business has developed steadily and now collects over 800 tonnes of wood waste per year (2017). We still sell the reclaimed timber from our Alderney Street premises and we have a small shop in the historic Victorian Market Arcade. The shop opened in 2013. Here we sell some of our smaller products and can take orders for the big stuff.
To contact the shop, please call 07410 700203.

As a separate entity within Reseiclo, there is "Reseiclo
Training". This organisation is a daycare
service for Adults with Learning Disabilities. The
students learn basic woodworking skills in Reseiclo's
Alderney Street workshop and help out with our bespoke
manufacturing activities. It gives them a real working
team environment and helps to develop interpersonal
and social skills too.

We aim to save as much wood waste from being
sent to landfill as possible. We recycle or
reuse 100% of the wood we collect. Our
collection service is better value for Industry
than the traditional 'Skip Hire' solution. As
well as the price per cubic yard being lower, we
hand-load our trucks so we can get more on!
We aim to provide employment, training and
volunteering opportunities for local people. We
are a community minded, Social Enterprise. All
surpluses generated are re-invested in our
mission. If you want to volunteer, contact the
office number 01633 856622, or pop down to see
All timber and timber products sold have been
collected and handmade in Newport from 100%
recycled wood. The price we charge for the
timber will be significantly lower than new - up
to half the price of DIY stores. All of our
products are unique - in the sense that no 2
items are exactly the same - we can build them
to your specifications.
