Have you got waste wood to clear away?

find out about your cheapest, most eco-friendly, people-friendly option

Domestic collections

We make life easier for you by collecting your waste wood.

Not only are we your cheapest, most environmentally friendly option, but when you use us, you’ll know you’re also supporting an organisation constantly transforming the lives of local people in need.

Our collections service provides us with both a source of timber and much needed income to cover salaries and overheads.

Wood that isn’t a high enough grade for resale goes for conversion into animal bedding, particle board and carbon neutral fuel.

In 2019, we saved 414 tonnes of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere.

 

Why use us to collect your domestic wood waste?

Save money as there’s no need to hire a van and pay tip charges.

We’re so much more cost-effective than hiring a skip as we charge less, and we only collect waste wood. Our trucks are cheaper to run so it’s better for the environment too. 

Your wood will be re-used or recycled. Nothing is sent to landfill.

There’s no licence to get, so we save you time and energy. 

We also load the truck for you - and because we load in an organised way rather than simply throwing stuff in, we get so much more in. The Building Research Establishment (BRE) estimate this void space can take up 50% of a skip.

Skip or transit truck? You compare.

Standard 8 Yard Skip

  • Wait for delivery, then load it yourself.

  • Huge diesel guzzling skip lorry visits twice, to deliver & collect.

  • Do you have suitable space?

  • Do you need an on street license?

  • Waste will probably be chipped for biomass.

  • You pay a fixed fee no matter how full the skip.

Typical cost

£250+VAT

or £310+VAT for 12 yards

Our 12 Yard Truck

  • No need to wait, start piling up your waste in convenient place.

  • We load the van, not you.

  • Smaller, more efficient truck only needs to come to you once for collection.

  • Your waste reused if possible

  • Flexible pricing, charged by the cubic yard.

Our price just

£136+VAT (8 yards)

or £204+VAT for 12 yards.

All charges flexible at £17+VAT per yard

We charge depending on the amount of material collected and the time it takes to load. 

We collect anything made from wood, such as:

  • wooden garden furniture (with some metal)

  • decking and timbers

  • wooden fencing

  • shed panels, cladding and structure (disassembled and with roofing felt removed)

  • leftover DIY wood and internal wooden architecture and flooring

  • anything else that was once a tree – except trees and garden waste

 

It’s a much more community-minded way of disposal and you get to be part of the circular economy. You’re supporting employment and volunteering opportunities for those finding it difficult to get work. All our earned income goes towards supporting our social and environmental aims.

Construction site collections service

Our collections are a valuable contributor to the Considerate Constructors and BREEAM Energy Efficiency goals. The construction industry sends 60% of its waste wood to landfill, increasing CO2 and more harmful methane emissions.

We’re here to help reduce this, saving you time, energy, and resource.

Our prompt, professional and competitive collections service is available to all businesses in Brighton & Hove and surrounding areas. Waste wood is collected via a loose collection and stacked intelligently by our team on to our trucks, decreasing voids to maximise the volume removed.

We re-use or recycle ALL the wood we collect. 

Wood for recycling is taken directly for wood chipping and onwards for use in panel board manufacture, or to a materials recycling facility for processing into animal bedding and fibre board or use for biomass energy production, where we ensure the greatest recovery of useful energy.

Materials reclaimed by us for re-use are cleaned up and de-nailed by volunteers for resale. Working with volunteers and reselling wood for DIY helps us fulfil our charitable, environmental, and social aims.

Re-using wood locks up carbon for longer and reduces the demand for virgin wood, imports, shipping, and transport. 

We've been working on construction sites with companies like Taylor Wimpey, Kier, and Willmott Dixon since we formed in 1998.

We have CSCS cards, a waste licence, environmental permit, insurance, sound H&S practices, PPE, and we support Considerate Constructors and BREEAM.

Book your collection now via collections@woodrecycling.org.uk or by calling us on 01273 570500.

Customer Testimonials

"Superb! Absolutely brilliant service... what you took away in one van would have cost us two skips’ worth. It's great that it's being re-used; no good it being dumped and chipped up." 

Martin H, Clipfine Ltd

 

"Absolutely happy with load sizes and value. I wouldn't have believed you could fit so much in!"

Alan P, Breyer Group
