Many building materials can be reclaimed for re-use without further processing, which can lessen environmental impact and possibly bring a cost saving. Sometimes materials can be re-used on the same site; failing that, there are likely to be outlets for many building materials.
Probably the best source of information on reclamation companies is SALVO, whose website carries comprehensive lists. They carried out a survey of the reclamation industry with the Building Research Establishment to establish its extent and future trends in supply and demand. SALVO also operates a reclaimed materials and architectural salvage exchange on the internet. The companies listed below with the letter (T) by their names receive the Salvo Theft Alert which notifies them of stolen items and any removed from listed buildings without consent. This supports efforts to ensure good practice in stock purchasing in the reclamations trade.
If you are in a position to specify the use of reclaimed and recycled building materials, bear in mind the need for quality and fitness for purpose.
Fly-tipping is illegal, unsociable and unnecessary - don't even think about it.
There is a charge for every load of waste you take to landfill -
BUT the organisations below may want to use your waste,
or they could direct you to someone who does.
you know someone who may be fly-tipping, PLEASE put them in touch
with someone listed in THE WASTEBOOK who can help them.

Contact Richie Simpson, Managing Director; Christian Bernard - Director
Originator of National Community Wood Recycling Project ( see entry below) set up by Richard Mehmed, and developer of the Recycled Wood Marque. About 6,000 tonnes of wood a year is landfilled from the Brighton and Hove area alone. Much is worth saving - the Woodstore is filled with tonnes of reusable timber, most from the construction / demolition industry. There is also wooden packaging waste and many non-returnable pallets. (see section 52). Much household wood ends up at the local tip, or stays in garages and sheds for years. As most "waste" timber is commercial, a charge can be made to take it away - at less than the cost of a skip, so there is a financial and environmental incentive to recycle. Sponsored by 3 environmentally aware local building companies, a small truck was bought to collect from their building sites. Timber was separated and stacked for collection. The loads are sorted and as much as possible re-used, for instance as floorboards, skirting, shelves and craft materials. Only 15% of the timber collected is returned to the waste stream. Also collects from firms with packaging waste and pallets, and members of the public.
A classification system was developed with the following grades:
Grade 1 Timber good enough to sell back to the DIY / builders market. Altough virtually anything will be useful to someone, grade 1 is wood at least 2 metres long, relatively sound, free from bad splits, nails and other contaminants. Also sheet materials including ply, chipboard, hardboard and MDF over 1 metre square; doors in good condition; pieces of hardwood and anything "interesting". Al though the wood might look dirty, it is suitable for many uses.
Clean and sound, but too short or small to be easily sold for DIY. Suitable to make wood products, from compost bins, bookshelves, art &craft items to high quality furniture. Making and selling such items is a good way to raise cash and to get across the potential for using recycled wood. The Recycled Wood Marque helps too, making it easier to identify recycled wood products.
Around 80% of all wood waste, this grade is the biggest challenge - rotten fence posts, small offcuts, broken doors and everything that doesn't fit into the other two grades. Much firewood is sold to local farmers with wood-fired boilers heating greenhouses; lots is re-manufactured into chipboard. A reasonably sustainable use for the large volume of this grade is as a fuel; one aim is to encourage installation of wood-fired heating / hot water systems in suitable buildings. With the need to reduce reliance on fossil fuels, wood could be widely used. (Updated Nov 2005)

Moved to new headquarters, purpose built to ecological principles (and a library open to the public, specialising in green issues) on 10 Nov 2003. Specialist mutual building society formed in 1981, dedicated to improving the environment by promoting sustainable housing and genuinely sustainable communities. Unique and radical policy of mortgage lending only for: energy efficient housing; ecological renovation; derelict and dilapidated property (preserving existing buildings); small scale, ecological or community-based enterprises; low-impact lifestyles focused on self-sufficiency and the most ecological use of land. Assets small in comparison with most other building societies, but it is growing rapidly. Strong commitment to maintaining its independence and mutuality of membership. Affinity scheme with Phone Co-op (section 34). (Updated July 2004)

Not-for-profit environmental group set up in February 2003 (at Brighton & Hove Wood Recycling Project - see above) to provide encouragement, help and practical advice to individuals or groups interested in setting up and developing community - focused wood recycling. Helps and monitors a network of wood recycling projects across UK dealing in waste timber from construction and other users. Wood is collected mainly from building site demolition, joinery, packaging and domestic waste, sorted into grades, then sold to the public via 'wood shops' or converted into wood products, firewood, woodchips for fuel, mulches or animal bedding. Aims to see 20 more UK wood recycling projects (typically not-for-profit social enterprises) set up by 2007, saving thousands of tonnes of wood from landfill, creating sustainable jobs, training and volunteering opportunities, and aiding local waste minimisation strategies. To encourage use of recycled timber, has developed the "Recycled Wood Marque", making it easier to identify recycled wood products. They hope it will be adopted nationally and internationally. People choosing products with the marque will encourage use of recycled materials. More info on website. (Updated Nov 2005)

Demolition engineers and suppliers of reclaimed building materials and architectural salvage. Promotes mutually beneficial links between companies in these industries. Aims to find a home for and sell on reclaimed materials for reuse, rather than paying to have them disposed of or wasted in landfill sites. Website has very useful searchable (by UK map or county region) database of small to large companies involved with building supply materials, including reclaim, reuse and recycling. Aims to develop and use website to provide i) materials for sale; and ii) a comprehensive listing of companies who sell reclaimed building materials, to make it easier for anyone wishing to use reclaimed and recycled materials to locate exactly what they require. 'Many materials can be reclaimed for re-use without further processing, which lessens environmental impact and possibly brings cost savings. Some materials can be re-used on the same site; failing that, there are other outlets for many building materials.'(Updated Nov 2005)
