Can Wood be Recycled?

Wood can very easily be recycled and is classed in different grades. Wood waste is one of the most highly produced rubbish in the UK. Because of wood’s versatility as a raw material, it is an inevitable by-product in many homes, businesses and urban construction projects. 

Wood waste accounts for about 17% of total waste in landfills, amounting to more than 4.5 million tonnes yearly.

Not all kinds of wood waste should go straight to the skip. In fact, the wood waste you are producing now could very well be an excellent source of profit. Offering great potential for reuse, wood waste has become a highly desirable recyclable product that processors are eager to acquire.

If you have wood waste you wish to get rid of, consider sending them to wood scrap recycling specialists offering collection services in your area. Use this article as a guide on how to successfully recycle your scrap wood and earn from it in the process.
