Moores are delighted to be working with Community Wood Recycling and are proud to have received the following from Richard Mehmed, Managing Director of National Community Wood Recycling and demonstrates even further our strong commitment to sustainability.
"Thanks to the commitment of Moores Furniture to use our national wood waste collection service, social enterprises that work under the Community Wood Recycling umbrella have earned more than £1 MILLION in collection fees since its launch in 2009. We are so proud of reaching this target that I wanted to tell you about the impact this has had.We estimate that each £20,000 of turnover results in a sustainable job, so Moores Furniture has helped to create 50 permanent jobs in social enterprise, as well as 13,500 days of volunteering each year!
In weight, over 7000 tonnes of wood has been rescued from landfill – much of which was pushed up the waste hierarchy into reuse, reducing the need for virgin timber and lowering the environmental impact of felling, processing and transportation. Each Community Wood Recycling Enterprise (there are now 27 throughout the country) is financially self-supporting and relies on the income from collections of wood waste to achieve their aims of saving resources and creating work and training for disadvantaged people."
