A sustainable solution for wood waste. 100% of the waste wood we collect is re-used or recycled – nothing goes to landfill.

Glasgow Wood offer a convenient and affordable wood collection service, providing a sustainable alternative to hiring a skip and sending to landfill. We are committed to reducing disposal costs, reducing valuable timber from heading to landfill and creating jobs for local people.

No matter the challenge, we’ll do everything we can to ensure your wood waste is correctly disposed of. All collected material is either recycled, reused or resold in our South Street timber yard & workshop. One off pieces of second-hand & vintage furniture and other miscellaneous timber pieces are listed on Gumtree.


Our wood collections follow the model of Community Wood Recycling, a network we are proud to be a member of.

In the financial year 2022-23, we collected, sorted, reused and recycled almost 4,000 cubic metres of waste wood, equal to approximately 1.5 olympic swimming pools.
