Clean Wood Waste
As of 2014 clean wood waste must be separated from regular waste. When separated, clean wood is one third of the price of regular tipping fee, saving users on tipping fees. Separated clean wood is chipped up and used as a carbon source at the compost facility. Loads mixed with clean wood are subject to higher tipping fees.
what is clean wood?
Clean wood is any unpainted, untreated, unglued dimensional lumber and pallets.
Why Separate Clean wood
