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.

A recent customer sent across this fantastic shed made out of Canadian Lumber Standard timber, sourced from OWR, which was then put up in their allotment.

We love seeing what you do with our wood, so keep the pictures coming 😍

Here's a welcome windfall of reclaimed hardwoods, all well dried chunks from a workshop clearance.

As you can see from the opening picture, there is stunning spalted beech is amongst their number!

Other species include oak, elm, ash and something very unusual alder. The latter is one I don't think we have ever previously had in stock.

All this and more can now be viewed in store, as we are back in business on our usual opening times.

But if you'd prefer to buy by phone you call call 01235861228.

Is anybody out there planning a pergola? As we have recently collected a huge pile of pressure treated 3"x3" (70x70mm) posts that would be perfect for the job.

Some of the timber is planed rather than tannalised, so would be better suited for table legs, workbench tops or other furniture.

Either type costs just £1.80/m and we can trim any of it to shorter lengths for 50p/cut.

Local delivery is available too -send us your postcode for a quote.
