Our Story


Newcastle Wood Recycling is a social enterprise, launched in September 2014 by Beth Mc Donough. The project aims to divert timber from the waste stream in the North East, while creating jobs, training and volunteering opportunities for people in the local community.

They offer a waste wood collection service - a great alternative to a skip. Wood collected is reused or or recycled in the most  environmentally responsible way, and sold on from their timber yard and shop for DIY material, as handmade furniture and garden products or as firewood.

Newcastle Wood Recycling are based in an old council depot in Walker, lovingly renamed the Wood Yard. The exciting new premises allow for more than just wood recycling to take place and so they hire out studio space to other makers and creators. The current residents at the Wood Yard are: Savage Angel Leather, Zanna Designs, Fada Foods, Jack McDonough Studio and the Print Room.

If you would like to find out more, pop along to the yard which is open to the public Monday - Saturday.

Ne mollis vocént verear pro. Pro né eripúit eleifend oportere, mentitum praeseñt interésset vel cu, rectéque cóñtentiones cónsectetuer eu méa. In aeque tibique vis, congue vivendo eligéñdi ex qui. Meá ét impetús nostrud fabellas, pro audiam theóphrastus ut. Id his quódsi eripuít vocibus, nibh faceté persecuti in ius. Ex vis muñdi iriure disséntiunt, éu vero viveñdum pri. Solet mnesarchúm ei per, ne deserunt adolesceñs incidérint pri, eam dicit líbris aliquid et. Iñani nonumy commódo sit et. Interessét coñclusionemqúe ex mea, éx viris homeró his.
