We need to drastically improve our recycling habits at home, in schools and at workplaces.
Recyclable wood is a resource
Why recycle wood?
In the landfill wood is a wasted resource. Wood can be reused as building material, recycled into mulch for landscaping or pulp for paper production and used beneficially as a fuel. Reusing and recycling wood reduces the need to cut down trees.
Consider chipping wood debris for landscape cover. Wood chips make excellent mulch for garden beds. A number of companies chip wood from trimmed or downed trees, including some tree services.
Buy and use salvaged or recycled wood and wood products or non–wood materials that are more easily recycled. If you use wood, choose certified wood, which means that the trees are harvested from a sustainably managed forest.
