Wood (Raw, Unfinished Lumber)

Unfinished, raw wood including any unusable pallets can be brought to the Facilities Services Recycling Yard (download pdf of recycling yard map) and put into the bin labeled “Raw Wood”.

This wood is sent to a large composting facility where it is ground for mulch. Nails are removed with magnets, but other contaminants can ruin a load of mulch.

Please no painted, pressure treated or glued wood in this bin (ex. Plywood, particle board). Those materials go into the “C&D” and “Engineered Wood” bin.
