Timber Recycling

Timber is one of the most renewable and 'earth friendly' materials available. It can be re-milled and recycled for other uses. Alternatively, some is suitable for chipping for mulch (but beware of health hazards associated with lead based paints). In 2015 SUEZ has produced 322,334t of compost from timber and organic waste.

SUEZ offers a range of collection and resource recovery services across Australia for both treated and untreated timber.

 

Collection Systems

Timber is collected in the following systems* which can be adapted to suit your site.

  • Builders' Bins
  • Bulk: Roll-On/Roll-Off (RORO)

Acceptance Criteria

Acceptance criteria can vary across all locations however no matter what type of timber material you generate we will find a solution for its appropriate treatment; this includes:

  • Soft wood
  • Hard wood
  • Timber pallets
  • Chipboard
  • Melamine
  • MDF
  • Treated timber

What happens after we've collected your Timber?

Our facilities that mulch garden vegetation, garden organics or green waste accept quantities of untreated timber (i.e. timber that has not been painted, varnished, stained or chemically treated for pests) which is processed into woodchips for use in the horticultural, agricultural and urban amenity markets.
