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.

Who We Are

Established to address sustainability issues in wood waste management and providing employment opportunities for people facing disadvantages.

We are temporarily closed due to the coronavirus emergency


Unfortunately, we have had to temporarily close Oxford Wood Recycling due to the ongoing coronavirus emergency to ensure the safety of our staff and customers. We are in the process of contacting all customers with outstanding collections, orders and deliveries. Will be in touch with updates as soon as possible.

In the meantime, please check our Facebook and Twitter pages. We are keen to continue interacting with our customers and will be posting blogs about all things wood including DIY ideas you can work on from home. So keep an eye on our website news section too!

Take care of yourselves and hope to see you soon!

WOOD CHOP SALE!

To celebrate the passing of 2019 and looking forwards to the New Year we're having a bit of a clear-out on Saturday 28th December. So why not take the opportunity to kick-start that new project by buying some discounted reclaim or a nice piece of Live edge hardwood?...

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.

Hi there, this is Alistair. I'm part of the Wood Shop team. Although our store is closed at the moment, that needn't stop us sharing information about wood online.

Since trees and timber are my specialist interest I'd like to share some info on different species and look at the wood which comes from them, drawing on the extensive collection of samples I have here at home.

I live in the Chiltern Hills where beech woods and conifer plantations both exist in abundance. Indeed some of the hardwoods we stock come from my local area.
Here are some of the lovely trees which grow in my neck of the woods.

What trees can you see from where you live? Or which do you encounter when out for your daily exercise?
If you have pics of notable or interesting trees that are local to you, then why not share them with us in the comments below.
Any that you can't identify could be a good topic for us to investigate in a future post.

Later we will look in detail at some of the trees seen in this post and I will show you some projects I've completed using those species.

In these times of closure, we want to continue to interact with you. Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing information about our plans during the lockdown and we will also help you stay entertained at home with all things wood.

We will discuss topics like the best tools to use for DIY projects, furniture design ideas and types of wood, among others. In our first post of the series, Alistair from the Wood Shop Team will be discussing tree species and the types of wood that come from them. Stay tuned this afternoon! 😃

Apologies all for the mixed messages, but I've just been informed that Oxford Wood Recycling and the Wood Shop will now be closed from tomorrow, as a precaution to protect staff and you the public.

As a non-essential business we feel it is the responsible thing to do.

When the situation changes we will let you know. In the meantime please avoid unnecessary journeys and stay safe.
