The Chiltern Wood Recycling Project, or ‘Chiltern’ as we are affectionately known by our customers, is an award winning, self-financed, not for profit social enterprise. Founded in 2009, we have diverted nearly two thousand tonnes of other people’s waste wood from landfill. Working with our fantastic volunteers, several of whom have become paid employees, we offer a professional waste wood collection service that is a more economic, efficient and environmentally friendly alternative to skip hire.
Time and time again, our customers say ‘if only they had discovered us before’ and how much they ‘love what we do’.
We also manufacture a diverse range of beautiful bespoke items from our reclaimed wood, from simple bird boxes and storage units for the garden, to chunky rustic shelving units and farmhouse kitchen tables for the home. We have even worked on much more complex projects, like a 33ft long upside down banquet table lighting installation that we built for an exclusive wine shop in Mayfair, London, featured on the BBC’s website.
