BWRP is an eight year old environmental project dedicated to saving resources (wood) through operating a wood waste collection service, and then reclaiming & recycling the wood. We are a not for profit social enterprise, and since last December we have re-organised ourselves to operate as a workers co-operative.
BWRP is based on a disused brownfield site behind Temple Meads station. Apart from our first 2 years here being rent-free, we remain entirely self-funded, nobody pulls our strings and we have no debts. The area we are located in is now known as the Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone, and is likely to attract all sorts of tax breaks and relaxation of planning regulations. This may or may not benefit us, but exciting changes are likely in the next few years, including the possible further development of our yard and storage structures. Fancy a challenge? Get on board.
