Job Description

Whelan the Warehouse is a key division of Delta Recycling. We specialise in recycled Australian hardwoods, posts and beams, solid timber joinery, furniture grade timbers, rough sawn, D.A.R and decking. We also carry a large range of solid T&G timber flooring, both recycled and new, and we are the exclusive distributor for premium Hydrowood products from Tasmania. Our history goes back to 1892 when a family owned demolition company called Whelan the Wrecker began recycling demolition and construction waste from across Victoria. Not much has changed in 126 years, except that we are now part of Delta Group and that our timber comes from demolition and construction sites from across Australia, as well as from the pristine waters of Lake Pieman in Tasmania. More often than the timber that makes it way to our warehouse comes with a unique provenance; literally timber with a story.
