Timber and wood recycling
Cleanaway collects timber – including pallets, crates and offcuts – for recycling. We also offer treated timber disposal services. Treated timber is used by Cleanaway to produce process engineered fuel (PEF) along with other combustibles at our waste to energy sites.
Timber that is not treated with chemicals, paint or varnish can be processed for agricultural use as an organic recyclable that provides nutritive value for soil improvement and plant growth.
Chipped and shredded timbers can also be turned into furnace fuel stock because of their high calorific value or be blended and bagged into various compost mixes.
We work with our trade partners for the beneficial reuse of treated timber as furniture, art and custom pieces. Our timber pallet recycling services allow customers to place pallets in dedicated bins for recycling and resource recovery.
What happens to timber waste after collection
We provide skip bins of all sizes for timber collection and timber pallet recycling based on a pick up schedule most conducive to your sites. After collection, the timber waste is chipped and can be turned into mulch, or compressed into wood pallets that can be used as Processed Engineered Fuel (PEF). Alternatively, treated timber may be sent to our partners for further processing.
