Wood

Recycled via: 

Your wood is collected from the HWRCs and taken to a reprocessing facility for further treatment.

  • It is then sorted and fed into a powerful wood shredder that breaks the pieces through a variety of processes.¬†
  • A vibrating screener then sorts the products into sizes and removes any contaminates. To ensure no product is wasted the oversized pieces are re-circulated.
  • Depending on the grade, the final material may be recycled into chipboard products, recycled into animal bedding or transported to a biomass plant and used as fuel.
