Wood (Recyclable)

Wood collected at County Refuse Disposal Sites is transported to out-of-county composting facilities. Recyclable wood is chipped to use for mulch for landscaping or as a beneficial fuel. Remember that when visiting disposal sites, the cost for dropping off recyclable wood is much less than the cost for garbage.

Recyclable wood:
Clean dimensional lumberPlywood
OSB (oriented strand board)Wood chips
PalletsWood siding
Non-recyclable wood:
Painted woodSawdust
Stained woodPressure-treated wood *
ParticleboardRailroad ties

* Wood treated with preservative (e.g., pressure treated wood, railroad ties and telephone phones) requires special handling. See Pressure-treated wood
