Our prices for reclaimed wood are always much more economical than the equivalent in large DIY stores.

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.

It may be quiet now but the Wood Shop is open until 8:00 this evening (as it now is every Thursday) so there's still time to pick up the bits you need for the weekends project.

Don't forget that the Bank Holiday means we will be closed on Monday, but until then it's business as usual ☺️

We love wooden ladders 😍, they have potential for so many projects. There are two ladders here, one is 3.6m and the other 4.8m, but either can be trimmed if you'd like a smaller section. Selling today for £12/m.

Three big boxes now sold!

Crates alive! I've just found some brilliant boxes tucked away at the back of our store. There's at least one potential planter here (for £15) plus some sturdy could-be tool boxes and two smaller units ideal for storing craft supplies.

These kind of items are always popular in our store, so make sure to call 01235861228 (option 2) of you are keen to secure anything!

Did you call this morning enquiring about pallets? As we've just had a stack of Euro pallets arrive this afternoon. Also in stock are over 30 euro lites, the former cost £4 and the latter £2 each.

Also in today these cute little cable drums might make good playthings for your youngsters over the holiday. Just 5 available for £1 each.

Apologies for the recent radio silence - our main page admin has been on leave for 10 days - but normal service is now resumed.

As you can see we've had some lovely new hardwoods come in today, with a few live edge yew lengths taking centre stage.

Scaffold boards are also in evidence this week, over 150 new boards and at least 50 reclaimed ones, so if you haven't sorted out your raised beds yet we have plenty of material.
