Plevin has been a member of the WRA for over 10 years. We experience numerous benefits to membership both socially and professionally. The regular meeting forums provide great networking opportunities and enable us to interact with colleagues within the industry to share learning and build stronger working relationships.

Meetings are informative and reflect the key issues which the industry faces on a day to day basis.

Having the backing of an industry body means that we’re not one voice among many. The problems we face are common throughout the industry. It turns out we are not alone in experiencing our issues, and there are many likeminded people that we can discuss the issues with, and reach sensible conclusions.

Graham Hobson, Finance Director, Plevin

It’s essential to have an industry body which represents its members at all levels to ensure we can continue to operate our businesses successfully. The WRA does just that.

Amanda Snowie, Scot Heating Company

The idea behind the WRA was to give the wood recycling industry a voice so we could lobby government and work collaboratively with them to influence legislation and regulations. We have achieved that and beyond. It’s fantastic to see the WRA going from strength to strength.

Geoff Hadfield, founder of Hadfield Wood Recyclers (now Enva) and founding member and former chair of the WRA

When we formed the WRA the packaging waste regulations were coming into play and were very complex which was one of the main reasons we started it. Since then the WRA has continued to do a great job and I’m delighted it’s doing as well as it is.
