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.
