 RECYCLING UNITS

THE SHEDZONE PROJECT 

Shed Zone is a small area within the Bristol Wood Recycling Project that specialises in taking waste or marginal wood, which would otherwise be destined for landfill, and creates an innovative range of small sheds for your recycling bins. The team is composed entirely of volunteers from the local community who have come together to develop their woodworking skills whilst also supporting the “Clean Streets” programme championed by Bristol Waste and the local council.

VOLUNTEER ENGAGEMENT 

The design prioritises modularity and durability and emphasises where possible the development of core woodworking skills for the Project volunteers, whilst the use of raw material collected from the streets of Bristol ensures that prices are highly competitive with other available solutions. A number of our volunteers are now competent in the making and building of these products and join us every week to help us fulfil our many orders!

THE STANDARD UNIT

Our standard unit is our most popular. It has space for one wheelie bin and 3 boxes, one of which can be a food caddy. You can choose which side you would like your shelves and we can also make this unit to fit two wheelie bins instead. These units are sturdy and long lasting and can make your front garden the envy of the neighbourhood! 

THE SINGLE TOWER

The single tower unit has two options. It can be for a wheelie bin, or for three boxes. This is a perfect add on if you need some extra space with the standard unit or have a small garden.

HOW IT WORKS

Over the last couple of years, the Shedzone team have developed the making of these units into a modular system, using a number of different jogs and templates. The modular design means that components and sub assemblies can be swapped out at any time meaning that the shed is effectively repairable “for life”. Moreover the modularity also enables the same production process to be used for production of a range of shed types depending upon your needs and each of these can be delivered complete or bought as a transportable, self assembly flat pack. If you fancy a weekend project the team will also supply just the raw material and the design files (CAD) and you can do your own thing.

CUSTOMISATION

Since starting the Shedzone project, we can now offer 3 different sized units. There is a small level of customisation, however as these units are modular there are certain criteria we cannot change. We sadly therefore cannot offer the following as of yet:

LARGER UNITS 
DOORS
GREEN ROOFS
CUSTOM WIDTHS AND HEIGHTS


As we deal in  reclaimed timber, there will be a slight marginal variation in the dimension from unit to unit (1-5mm). Please take this into consideration if you are working with a tight space! All of our units can be ordered in a flat pack version if you have access issues or would like to transport it home yourself. 

 

THE HALF HIGH

The half high is perfect if you don't have a wheelie bin or have more than 3 recycling boxes. It's perfect for garden storage as well! Like our standard unit, this is also available in a flat pack version. It also has two shelves to ensure no water gets into your recycling boxes. The dimensions for this unit are: 

WIDTH: 1330mm
DEPTH: 680MM
FRONT HEIGHT: 1007MM
BACK HEIGHT: 940MM 
TOP SHELF SPACE: 480MM 
BOTTOM SHELF SPACE: 520MM
