Volunteer at Move On Wood Recycling

Move On Wood Recycling is social enterprise in Edinburgh which collects waste wood, sells quality timber and makes upcycled furniture and other items.

With a workshop in Granton, we collect waste wood from anywhere across Edinburgh and the Lothians. 

By looking at what waste wood can be reused instead of being chipped, our service reduces landfill use and the production of methane gas.

We also provide quality work experience, volunteering and training opportunities.


Volunteer with us

Would you like to learn new skills, meet new people and help the environment? If the answer is yes, then volunteering in our wood recycling workshop could be the perfect opportunity for you.

Volunteers can help with any aspect of the business: driving the van, de-nailing timber, making products and marketing.

You don’t need to have previous experience, just a desire to help and willingness to learn.

We welcome people from all backgrounds and provide full training and support.


If you’re interested in volunteering in our workshop, please contact us on wood@moveon.org.uk or 0131 551 6937.
