What are we trying to do?........

The increase of habitat loss and the decline of some of the world's rarest animals is increasing rapidly, due to intensive harvesting of forest products and man's demand for more agricultural land. We are trying to minimise this impact by reducing the need for imported timber, from other parts of the world, as well as reducing the need for landfill in this country.


By recycling and reusing waste wood we are helping to reduce deforestation and the need for landfill, which in turn helps to prevent the release of CO2 and methane into the atmosphere. We then reuse or resell this wood, which locks up carbon and prevents it from damaging the environment.

Meet a few friendly faces........


Mr Andrew Hicks - Project Director


Charlotte Coombs - Office manager

"After spending most of my working life in a Corporate Marketing environment, I was offered the exciting opportunity to work for Chiltern Wood Recycling in September 2016. I find working for a non-profit social enterprise so much more rewarding, because I know my work contributes to keeping wood out of landfill, protecting the environment and also makes a positive difference to people's lives.

We have some really exciting projects planned for the near future, including the launch of our woodwork courses to the public and the opening of our new customer showroom, which will allow us to display our beautiful, hand-crafted products within a designated area.

Our team work really hard - from drivers to volunteers - and it's such a privilege to work alongside such a diverse, happy and enthusiastic bunch of people, all working together for a great cause. The ethos and 'magic' of Chiltern Wood Recycling has me hooked."
