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.

Now this little pile is sure get a few of your excited!

First up (but last pic) we've received delivery of 50 pairs of trestle table legs, made for us by another member of the Community Wood Recycling network. These legs measure 72cm high x 55cm wide and cost £25 each.

On top of the load are lots of small hardwood ply sheets, mostly 3-5mm thick, so ideal artists boards. They're priced from £3 each.

Lastly you'll have noticed that lovely T&G in the middle, which has come from some dismantled packing cases. The stuff in the pics looks like southern yellow pine and it's 13cm wide x 2cm thick, for £2/m. There are a couple of other sizes of T&G here, some for £2 and some £3/m.

Whose in the dog house??
As apparently this large framework used to be a kennel! We think it could easily be reappropriated as a log shed or bike store. We've even got the original cladding which was fixed on the ends.

Elsewhere on the same collection there were a pallet load of picket pales and a nice pair of wooden gates, accompanied by about 8 @ 2.6m strips of 145mm wide larch shiplap cladding.

We'd like £85 for the dog house, £15 each for the gates, £2/m for the shiplap and 75p each for the pales.

The warm glow of new yew is shining out by the sales desk this morning, accompanied by a lovely 2" thick slab of sanded cherry, some English ash and a top up of chopping board sized blanks of pre planed oak.

The book-matched set of yew are nearly 60cm wide x 1.9m long x 2.5cm thick, while the delightfully scented cherry is approx 1.3m x 40-50cm.

A few early birds are already rummaging through these latest arrivals, so if you see something you fancy don't hesitate to give us a call! You can reach the Wood Shop on 01235 861228 (option 2).

This is the sight of 25 sheets of 22mm chipboard flooring arriving in store, which we are selling for just £6 per sheet.

All 2440 x 600mm these are new unused flooring boards, however they've been outdoors on a building site so some may be slightly damp.
