Who We Are

Established to address sustainability issues in wood waste management and providing employment opportunities for people facing disadvantages.

Oxford Wood Recycling


Oxford Wood Recycling was formed in June 2005 by Richard Snow, Nick Dowling and Helen Porter. They came together on a post graduate Forestry degree at Oxford University. Realising there was a wasteful attitude towards wood products in the UK, they collectively wanted to help address the issue.

Building on Richard’s social enterprise and business management experience there was also an opportunity to enable people facing severe disadvantages to get back into mainstream employment. Using these two issues as pillars of an organisation Oxford Wood Recycling was created.

Oxford Wood Recycling

Oxford Wood Recycling is a social enterprise providing an environmentally friendly alternative to a skip for producers of wood waste in Oxfordshire, West Buckinghamshire and most of Berkshire. We specialise in recovering reusable materials from the waste collected, which provide local DIYers and woodworking enthusiasts with a sustainable source of low cost timber. See the Wood Shop album to get an idea of the materials we can offer. For waste wood producers, we can provide you with a comprehensive waste audit detailing the destination of all of your waste, which you may be required to have to comply with recent legislation governing the disposal of waste. For wood users, we have an ever changing array of both ordinary and unusual materials. From raised beds to garden sheds, floorboards to firewood, bookshelves to storage boxes or workshops to wine racks. If you can make it from wood our low cost, high quality supplies are sure to fit the bill.

This morning we've received a superb batch of new hardwoods! My favourite is the olive ash board in the second picture, though no less exciting is the Wild Service tree (second from left in the opening shot).
There are a few sanded planks, plus rough sawn sections of oak, ash, sweet chestnut, London plane and yew.
As always there are too many to itemise all the sizes and prices, but do call 01235861228 if you can't visit but would like more info.

You really need smellovision to properly appreciate these old whiskey barrel planters. I don't even like whiskey and I'm a fan of the evocative aroma!
We've got 4 in stock today, at £45 each, but there are plenty more barrels available that we can cut up if needed.
Overall dimensions are 65cm diameter x 44cm high.
You can order by phone on 01235861228 (option 2) or pop in if you'd prefer to pick your own 🙂

Just as it's coming around to sitting out in the garden weather we seem to be getting lots of big table sized cable drums 😊
This newly arrived number is 1.5m in diameter x 1.0m high and is available for £65.
Bigger items like these can easily be delivered if you are within 30 miles of our shop, so don't let the size dissuade you from purchasing.

That's the hardwoods all priced, and with the evening shift here until 8:00 tonight there are plenty of staff on hand to help you pick out the perfect piece for your project, be it a worktop made from this huge plank of oak, a table that accentuates the book matched ash, or some shelving with the narrower strips of oak, ash and yew.
These pics show just a snapshot of our range - call in for the fullest native hardwoods experience.
