Wood Waste Recycling
Wood waste is the second largest category of construction and demolition (C&D) debris, and accounts for 10% of material added to landfills annually.
Wood waste generated from demolition operations is often considered C&D material due to the contamination of other materials, which get co-mingled during demolition operations. Feedstock can be scrap wood generated from residential or commercial wood frame construction, pallets, shipping crates and other wood-based containers. Due to the limited options for reusing these materials, reduced wood waste can be recycled to make biomass, bedding material, mulch or compost.
