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.

Here's a trolley load of random rounds, some dowel, some tool handles and a selection of poles. All from a workshop clearance in Abingdon, there's a few bits of mahogany and oak in here too...

Just before we go home I must show you the rest of today's treasures...

First up, here's a trolley load of iroko veneer shelves from an engineering workshop in Oxford. There are about 40 available, for £6 each.

Then there was another lot of ply and chipboard sheets, a few thicknesses on offer, with prices from £4 - £10 each.

Lastly look out for those lovely new louvre doors when have come from a new build near Bicester. I don't have the sizes handy but they'll be around £55 each.

You'll need to wait till tomorrow if anything takes your fancy, but from 8:30 onwards we'll be able to field your enquires.

Phew, talk about a frantic morning!

In all the excitement I've not had time to share the lovely lumps of ash which came in this morning. The smaller, thicker chunks would be perfect for chopping boards, while the longer pieces seen like excellent shelving.

The last load of 18mm ply we had whistled out in a matter of days! So I'm sure this pile of phenolic faced sheets will be similarly popular.
Not all are full sheets, we'll know more once they have been put in the racks, but on first impression they'll be around £8 - £16 per piece.
