Please note: we do not receive any external funding to recycle wood. We have to pay our way, so we usually have to charge for this service.

Normal Collection

If you have a mixed-grade wood collection, then you can make use of our paid service. Our charge is £285.60 (inc VAT). This is for up to 14 cubic yards / 1 Tonne whichever comes first.

Free Collection

If you have Grade 1* timber (see below for definition) which is free from nails/screws and large enough to be reusable, and of a sufficient quantity to be a viable collection then we may be able (at our discretion) to collect for free.

Our free collections need to fit around our normal schedule of paid work so remember to allow time for us to fit you in.


Other ways to dispose of your Wood Waste

1) Take your wood waste to your local HWRC

Your local Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) has separate bins for wood waste. This wood is sent for chipping / biomass, and doesnt go to landfill. As a domestic customer, this does not cost you anything.

All councils operate a special uplift service of all types of rubbish. They charge from £25 per collection for up to five items. To arrange a special uplift, follow these links:
