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.

Late night donation!

An unexpected treat this evening - we've just been given a big pile of V-notch T&G cladding, which looks like it's mostly new unused.
Approx 85mm wide x 12mm thick there's probably around 15m² available, for £1/m (£11/m²).

Want to make sure it's yours? Then call 01235861228 (option 2) without delay!

The old school theme continues this afternoon with some beech ply stacking chairs.
On a different topic we've had two huge kitchen worktops, the first in many months, and 10 oak whiskey barrels have also be brought into stock from storage.

Midweek miscellany!!

There have been all sorts of oddments turning up in the past week, too many for me to keep up with writing individual posts about, so here's a little photo album to remind you of our range.

New furniture is constantly emerging from the workshop, whilst our collection teams continually bring back surprising treasures, and we also often get donations from your lovely people such as some bits of bamboo worktop that have arrived while I've been typing.

Call in to see more - it's an ever changing adventure!
