The Wood Yard

Newcastle Wood Recycling CIC is a not-for-profit organisation on a mission to divert wood from the local waste stream through its wood recycling service, while creating employment, training and volunteering opportunities for people in the community.

The timber they collect is used to create beautiful furniture and woodwork pieces for homes, gardens and businesses, or sold on for DIY material or as firewood.

They have transformed their wood yard, a former council depot in Walker, into a sustainable, vibrant space that serves as an asset to the local community. They provide studio space to other creative businesses that share their environmental and social ethos.

The organisation was founded in September 2014 by Beth McDonough. Beth has a background in youth and community work and qualifications in carpentry. Whilst searching online for reclaimed wood, she discovered Community Wood Recycling , which inspired her to set up our very own project in Newcastle. They are now part of the national network. Beth is passionate about creative community engagement and committed to developing social enterprise in line with their Vision, Mission & Values.
