A social enterprise working in and for your community
Oxford Wood Recycling is a Company Limited by Guarantee, with 100% of profits re-invested into the organisation in order to fulfill our mission both to support people at a disadvantage in finding employment and to encourage the reuse and recycling of waste timber.
Our board, staff and volunteers are committed to growing a business that is socially inclusive, economically sustainable and furthers the reduction, reuse and recycling of wood waste across the county and beyond.
We operate a commercial waste wood collection service which produces a proportion of reuse material, then cleaned up and sold at our timber warehouse in Abingdon. The business activities support our work with volunteers who are seeking to improve their prospects for employment.
An award winning Social Firm, we offer employment and volunteer work placements to people who find it hard to get work, and this includes working in partnership with other social enterprises and organisations in Oxfordshire who share these aims.
We believe that working with wood and timber offers many opportunities to gain skills and expertise – whether in making wood products, or in processing wood and timber – and we believe it’s generally very therapeutic! We also offer placements for business administration and sales and marketing roles.
