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.

Large shed now SOLD.

The arrival of two sheds just now in the shop will surely be the cause of some excitement, admittedly one is a Wendy house but it could be used for garden tools too.

Approx dimensions and suggested prices are shown in the pictures. Neither shed has any glazing fitted and both will need some repairs. The bigger one does have double doors (not illustrated).

*Viewing recommend* for the large shed and sorry we are unable to reserve.

Today we have been prototyping a product made from the mini-sleeper mountain.

External dimensions 1.6x1m, height 37.5cm

Would you pay £50 for ready cut timber to make such a raised bed? You would need to add your own method of securing the timber in place.

Tell us what you think.

This morning we returned to Buscot & Coleshill @ntwestoxfordshire and gathered a huge heap of hardwood gems.

From woodturning blanks to garden benches there'll be multiple projects coming good from this pile. Some of the larger planks are from trees that grew on the estate itself!

All are yet to be priced, so please pop in to find out more. Customer numbers are no longer restricted so you can come straight in when you arrive 😊
