Collections

Leeds Wood Recycling offers an ethical, cost-effective and convenient wood collection service.

We work in a similar way to a skip hire company, but offer a sustainable alternative to waste disposal: 100% of our collected wood waste is sorted, repurposed and recycled.

We also aim to help long-term unemployed people gain experience and training, working to create new sustainable jobs for people in our community.

How our collections work

When you need a collection give us a call or send us an email, and we’ll come to you in our caged van.

We pack the van, using the space more efficiently than just ‘throwing it in the skip’ – reducing up to 40% of wasted space. Once the van is packed, we take a look at the measuring gauge on the side of the van, and agree with you the quantity in cubic yards of wood waste we are taking. We then charge per cubic yard for what we take, so you’re not paying for a half empty skip.

Once you’re happy, we’ll take the wood back to our warehouse for processing.

The timber is then sold in our shop, available for sale to the public at affordable prices.

We also make products from the timber to sell, from chopping boards to planters. Come and have a look at what have to offer!

Anything that can’t be used gets made into firewood and kindling, or chipped and formed into new Egger boarding by our supporters Timberpack.

Simple and sustainable!

Cubic yards?! What’s that?

The skip waste industry works largely in cubic yards rather than in weight. As a guide, a 4 cubic yards (a midi skip) is our minimum collection. The most common skip size is 8 cubic yards – a large builders skip. The capacity of our van is like a midi skip and a builders skip together at 12 cubic yards.

How much will it cost?

Our collection charges vary depending on the amount, quality and location of your wood waste. We have minimum charges for smaller loads and we are flexible!
