Community Project saves over £8,000 sourcing building materials through Recipro

posted 11.04.2013

At Recipro we are determined to reduce the amount of surplus building materials entering the waste stream and instead using the materials to help charity and community projects. We have a free to use website which everyone can use but we also offer a range of corporate services for large contractors and merchants who wish to help the community they work in, whilst lowering their own skip costs.

This blog looks at a project that we?ve been involved with from the beginning, Wallasey Gymnastics Refurbishment, this project has been one of the biggest benefactors of the Recipro service, purchasing cheap building materials that has helped them to save over £8,000 and helped greatly reduce the environmental impact of the construction project.

So far we?ve been able to help save;

? More than £8054 sourcing through Recipro
* based upon cost of same or similar new material, assuming no trade discount

? 6.14 tonnes carbon saved

? 15.9 tonnes of materials diverted from waste streams

Wallasey Gymnastic Club is dedicated to providing a fun learning environment for all children from ages 4+, while instilling life values through the sport of gymnastics, if you?d like to find out more about the project, please click here. Recipro has thoroughly enjoyed being apart of this project and watching it develop, we will continue to help this project and keep you updated on its progress.
