Good with Wood

A social enterprise working in and for your community

Oxford Wood Recycling is owned by its members, who are the employees and regular volunteers, and who 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.

Oxford Wood Recycling’s activities are principally to operate a commercial waste wood collection service and retail timber warehouse. We aim to make a profit just like any other business, but all profits are re-invested back in the business, allowing us to create more jobs, more products and more services.

Volunteer sorting timber…

We offer employment and volunteer work opportunities to people who find it hard to get work, 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!

In our highly supportive but disciplined and customer focused business, we train, build confidence and self-esteem with our employees and volunteers.

For many of our employees, time with Oxford Wood Reycling can be a genuinely life-changing experience.

We publish occasional newsletters and invite you to sign up for these using the form on the right hand side.

Join our vibrant community on Facebook for inspiration and discussion, help or advice and OWR events. Please show us what you’ve made, we’re always interested in what our brilliant and creative customers have made.

It's always a treat for the wood shop when one of our vans comes back with some 'keepy' on board, but this is an exceptional load since it's 100% reusable! The large pallets will make a welcome boost to our dwindling pallet wood stocks and the rest is mostly new unused 3x2 and 4x2!
Such is the occasion we've even managed to get Ben out of his box to help with the unloading​😃
