BWF seeks to reduce UK wood waste
Published:  13 October, 2009

LONDON: The British Woodworking Federation (BWF) is looking for companies across the timber industry to take part in a major initiative to improve the UK's record on wood waste.

The Wood Waste Resource Efficiency Project has secured £50 000 of funding from the BRE Trust and Waste Recycling Action Programme (WRAP).

To secure sector-wide input, the WWREP has set up a working group with other timber trade bodies and is also involving the Wood Recyclers Association. Now, it is looking for businesses to get involved with the pilots.
