Forest Recycling Project

Last week was the first time I’d ever been into the Forest Recycling Project (FRP) on Bakers Avenue, near the Bakers Arms. What a cracking find it was too.

FRP is situated next to the Hornbeam Cafe. On first glance it doesn’t look like much, but the place is massive inside and there are all sorts of items available from there. I popped in to see if they would take a TV cabinet which I didn’t need any more. The people who run it were really helpful and came round to pick up the cabinet there and then.

The project was set up in 1989 and I assume it must have been slightly ahead of its time. Anyway, it’s a great place to either donate some good quality items which can be reused, or to pop in and have a rummage around their store. The website is here. I think it’s a bit of a hidden gem in Walthamstow!
