Commercial Waste Wood Recycling Service

Save money and divert waste from landfill with our Commercial Wood Recycling Service

We offer a fully licensed, prompt, and professional, waste wood collection and recycling service that is both affordable (cheaper than a skip) and helps protect the environment by saving wood from going to landfill : all whilst supporting people get back into work.


More waste per cubic yard can be loaded onto our custom-made vehicles than in a skip.
By diverting wood waste from landfill, this also saves on landfill tax rates for your business


By reusing or recycling the timber we collect, we prevent wood from going to landfill & this contributes to the Considerate Constructors and BREEAM Energy Efficiency Goals


We aim to fulfil your collection within 48 hours of your request using our custom-made vehicles


We provide WTN’s with every load, are licensed as a Waste Carrier (CBDL75929), and have a Waste Exemption (WEX151316) for our handling site

About the service

Our collection service operates across Hampshire, within a 30 mile radius of our location (SO19 7HS). We operate using custom-made vehicles, which are designed to carry up to 14 cubic yards / 1 Tonne of wood waste (whichever comes first) per load.

A cost effective solution
More economical than skips
Our staff and volunteers hand-load the vehicles, ensuring a minimum of void space – we don’t just chuck the wood in randomly!
All wood is reused or recycled
We raise wood up the waste hierarchy, ensuring that no wood ends up in landfill
Reusing wood locks up carbon for longer and reduces demand for importing and transporting virgin wood
Reuse: Approximately 20% of the materials we collect are de-nailed and cleaned up by our volunteers ready for re-sale to the local community and for use in the creation of our furniture range
Recycle: The remaining 80% still gets recycled by going directly to a wood chipping facility and for further use in panel board manufacture or biomass energy production
Support your environmental targets
Wood recycling contributes to your Considerate Constructors and BREEAM Energy Efficiency goals
Support getting people back into work
We help people get back into employment by providing volunteer opportunities within our collection team and within the wider Project
