Szerelmey have recently teamed up with a fantastic community recycling initiative called the Riverside Timber Recycling Project, to try and ensure that the wood waste from our sites is put to good use. It is surprising how much wood our sites generate, primarily through the wooden pallets and crates that our stone is delivered in. Although Szerelmey has lots of creative people who would love to upcycle the wood, we don’t have the time, which is why the RTRP is such a great idea. RTRP is part of the national Community Wood Recycling Project which was set up in 2003 to develop a nationwide network of wood recycling social enterprises.

Riverside Timber Recycling are based in Romford, Essex, where they have a large yard selling timber and furniture. They are currently collecting our wood waste from a large site we are working on at 48 Carey Street. Szerelmey are cladding the exterior of this 10 storey residential block with British Stanton Moor sandstone and Portuguese Moleanos. We are installing faience units to all of the window surrounds in addition to 400 prefabricated, post tensioned sandstone columns. We have also installed all of the SFS backing structure.
