Past & Present

At Wood Recyclability we are proud of our history and look to the future with enthusiasm and ambition. We are a business ‘for people’ and take great pride in the fact we are supportive, friendly and a caring organisation.

We were established in 1997 as a Social Enterprise company as there was an identified need within Aberdeenshire to provide such a training centre. Since then there have been long established links across the three Local Authorities and business sector.

We are one of a few Centres that provide a real work place setting for adults with a variety of abilities.

Over the years the Centre has received recognition for its work.
