Wood Collection

Recycle your waste wood by using our wood waste collection services and save 40% or more on skip charges.

Furniture

At our Oxford Wood Recycling workshops we have developed a fabulous range of reclaimed wood furniture.

Wood Shop

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

Help us stay afloat during the COVID-19 closure

As a social enterprise, 94% of our income comes from trading. We have temporarily lost this entirely due to the COVID-19 emergency. Now more than ever, we rely on our long-standing customers and supporters to be able to stay afloat during this crisis. Please help us...

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.

These oak communion rails came in during May from a local church, but sadly nobody was able to view them.
Now that we are open again I'm sure someone will be able to find a use for them.
Approx dimensions are shown in the photos and we have 5 in stock for just £30 each!
Visit us 9:00-4:30 weekdays and 9:00-3:00 Saturday to see for yourself, or call 01235861228 to buy by phone.

Already it's very busy as customers are finding their way around in the new shop layout, and please note we are still operating with a skeleton crew.

The usual opening times apply - these are just being updated on the Facebook page.

Moving swiftly to Stage 1 of our re-opening plan – meaning Oxford Wood Recycling’s Woodshop is opening once again, from 1st July, with our normal opening hours. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you back through the door where it will be once more possible to touch, sort and even smell the wood before you buy. We’re not yet quite able to undertake commissions for tables but we should be able to take wood orders for sanding by next weekend.

Safety First is our quaint old watchword so we will be restricting customer numbers and maintaining 2m social distancing where possible. We know our customers to be a patient lovely bunch and that the new normal is going to be just fine. We’ll try our very best to make your visit fruitful and enjoyable. Have a great weekend!

“A fantastic Aladdin’s cave of a place. Brilliant, enthusiastic and informative people. Great collection of Hardwoods. I love this place, inspires me to try and learn new skills.

I bought a gorgeous piece of Chestnut and some large pieces of Oak to build a Garden Bench, I will certainly be back for more.”
