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's just 2 pallet collars, but I know a couple of you are on the hunt for some. Call us on 01235861228 or pop along this evening - we're open until 8:00!
They're 1200 x 800 x 200mm approx, for £8 each.

As one book-match leaves here comes another to take it's place. This one is accompanied by a big selection of off-cuts including battening, short shelf making materials, potential chopping boards and lots for woodturning too.
You've plenty of time to call in and check them out since of course it's late night opening on a Thursday, so our team will be on duty until 8:00 tonight.

Howdy folks.

Just to let you know that we'll be closing slightly early on Friday (at 3:45) so we can hold our AGM.

It'll be all back to normal again on Saturday.

This beautiful beast is a newly arrived, solid iroko ex-kitchen unit. Hugely heavy, it's got all the drawers and doors, but sadly the tops aren't quite all there.

Measurements are shown in the photos and we're thinking £150 in hope of a quick turnaround. We can also deliver locally for a small extra charge.

Outdoor kitchen?

Decent length decking is very unusual here in the wood shop, so this rack full of 4.8m lengths (@£1.40/m) is sure to please. The box of off-cuts also contains a few useful pieces.

An influx of flower boxes had also occurred whilst I was away, of which we we've now got more than 100 available and still for £ each or Buy 2 get 1 Free, whilst outside there are plenty of sturdy pallets, ideal for all kinds of garden furniture, tables of quick 'n' easy compost bins.

Plus if you need a log store for stacking firewood, then maybe one of the big hardwood crates stacked out front will fit the bill?

These 100 bags of kiln dried beech firewood must be a sign that autumn is nearly here. Thankfully this top quality firewood gives an excellent heat output since beech is a particularly dense timber that burns with a bright hot flame.

Available today for £6.95 per bag, which gets you approx 10kgs. As always we can deliver locally, do call 01235861228 (option 1) if you'd like to place an order.
