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.

Classic keepy!

This is the kind of waste timber collection which powers the heart of our enterprise, linking the work of our dedicated collection teams to the more accessible face of the firm here in Abingdon which you are all familiar with.

Over 90% of the 'waste' on this wagon has now been set aside for reuse. Disposal by a regular skip company would have seen 100% put through a chipper and probably burned!

A mix of joists and studwork timbers there's wood here ideal for all sorts of home, workshop or garden creations, available at competitive prices.

Buying from us helps reduce waste in local industry, supports disadvantaged people in your local community, and makes home improvement projects more affordable into the bargain.

Feast your eyes these sun drenched hardwoods!

Bursting with colour and unique, swirling grain, these sanded hardwood slabs have definitely brightened up our day.

Burr sycamore, pippy elm, spalted beech and ripple sycamore all speak with their own voice. Do any cry out to your creative desires?

All SOLD.

Well travelled timber crates!

These sturdy wooden packing cases have travelled a long way to be with us this week - roughly 6,166 miles if they went the most direct route!!

Measuring 102 x 89 x 75cm they'll set you back just £15 each, plus we can also deliver if they're too big for your car boot.

They would be perfect for planters, but I'm sure equally at home as a toy box, log store, compost bin or extra large bug hotel.

Fabulous fence panels!

These 12 closeboard fence panels look like they've only just been built. They really are in excellent condition.
Measuring approx 3m long x 1.65m high we're asking for only £18 per panel, and for a small extra charge can deliver locally as well.
Were that already not a fantastic enough offer, we are happy to accept just £200 the lot!

We've gathered rather a book-matched board bonanza in store this week, with matching pairs of beech, oak and sycamore slabs to tickle your table making taste buds. There's also a board of 5cm thick olive ash that would do for a table top all by itself, measuring 2m long x 74cms wide!!

Thursday's late night opening means you have until 8:00 this evening to avail yourself of our excellent enterprise 😊 so we'll expect to see you soon.
