Wheel Works: Positive Garden Youth Project with North Belfast Youth Resource Centre
ISL Waste Management and WheelWorks have been working in partnership to reuse a batch of unwanted wooden pallets to help design a new outdoor space at the North Belfast Youth Resource Centre. The pallets were overtime recycled to make functional and comfortable outdoor furniture.
Helen Di Duca, Project Coordinator from WheelWorks said:
“ISL provided the raw materials needed for the revamp of a youth club garden space, which otherwise may have otherwise ended up in a landfill. The members of the North Belfast Area Project will be able to enjoy the garden, just in time to enjoy over the summer months. The group also benefited in helping design and build the new furniture.”
Danny Paton, our Senior Account Manager said:
“We are always trying implement a circular economy model and circular economy thinking. As a waste management firm, we are constantly looking for innovative solutions, while also delivering tangible benefits to wider community groups both environmentally and economically. It’s a pleasure that we can help turn one organisations waste into a valuable resource for another and solving problems in the wider community.”
We would like to thank WheelWork’s for partnering with ISL and for illustrating how we can follow the principles of the waste hierarchy to achieve social good.
