2020 sees us celebrate our 15th year of trading. Wiltshire Wood Recycling was set up as a non profit Community Interest Company and started trading in 2005 after securing a small grant and finding premises in Castle Combe. Since then the Company has become self financing and has grown to cover not only Wiltshire but Dorset, Gloucestershire,Banes, South Oxfordshire and even Herefordshire and Worcestershire. We are still a non profit organisation and will continue to be so and we will always support our local Community, where ever that may be!


We would like to welcome Catherine on board as our new Saturday Assistant, pop in and say Hello.


We are hoping to recruit a Saturday Assistant to help out at our Castle Combe store. If you are interested please call our Office for an informal chat: 01249 783499

Please note we will be closed this Bank Holiday weekend.


If you wanted it? too late it’s sold!  The lucky customer took delivery of our Garden feature yesterday. This comprised of 3 pieces of very and old beautifully weathered Oak Ships timbers from a wreck site discovered on the south coast. The timbers were carbon dated to at least 300years old and could possibly have been older. They may have been from two Warships and formed the Keelson of one. If only they could talk! We still have a few 2m x 30cm square beams from the same ships left.
